A beautiful open air getaway in Paradise. We had a lovely few days here. Alvin, Verlinda and Benton were so helpful. The hammock, pool and bed on the open living room were ideal of relaxing. I'd come back in a hearbeat!
Hi Samantha.... I’m happy to hear you enjoyed your stay... I hope you had a chance to get to the beach or do some hiking... it’s truly beautiful in soufriere...Hope you come back soon.. David
The view is beautiful from the house. The openness of the living area makes you feel a part of nature in the tropical surroundings. However, the openness (lack of walls and windows) makes the heat, bugs, and noise from nearby dwellings less than comfortable. It gets dark early and turning on a light after dark results in swarms of bugs and moths. A few amenities listed (e.g. cable TV and tennis) were not available during our stay.
Thanks for your comments. It is my commitment to make sure all guests enjoy their stay at Labagatelle. The openness of the villa provides the best view of the Pitons and the Caribbean Sea and allows the sea breeze to flow throughout the top floor. Bug are a way of life on the island but reducing the number of lights used at one time and using the bug repellent and citronella candles will significantly reduce any bug issues. The tennis court below is shared with the villa next door and can be reserved with a request to the Labagatelle staff. Unfortunately, the cable tv has been out for several weeks due to an upgrade in the wiring and new cable boxes. I am replacing the current tv with a new smart tv so internet streaming will be available.
Unwind and take in the view
We (2 couples) stayed here during the 1st week of April. The view cannot be beat! The accommodations were wonderful. Lounging by the pool and napping in the hammock or daybed never lost its novelty. Verlinda, Alvin, and Benton were pleasant and helpful. Be sure to take advantage of Verlinda’s cooking; it is scrumptious. Sam also was helpful with booking and answering questions about the villa. We thought having no air conditioning would be a problem but we never missed it. Suggestions: stop in Vieux Fort for groceries when you arrive; the selection is much better than Eroline’s in Soufriere. Verlinda also can grocery shop for you while at the villa. We had dinner at Fond Doux, Dasheene, and Hummingbird—all very good. Also had lunch at Jade Mountain which was ok but nothing over the top (other than the view). Tour the Sulphur Springs and snorkel at Sugar Beach. Visit Mamin Beach (it is a 20-25 minute walk down from the villa; ask Benton to pick you up unless you want to hike back up). Enjoyed a fabulous lunch here. The road up to the villa is steep and curvy; by car it takes 10-15 minutes to go up. Walking up is another matter! The beaches are public but resorts keep the public to one side. We found Mamin Beach was much nicer than the beach at Anse Chastanet. We cannot wait to return!
Villa la Bagatelle: Indescribable Anse Chastenet-area beauty and luxury
This wasn't our first trip to St. Lucia and we wanted to stay in the south this time because of the sights there. The villa is above Anse Chastanet Road, about 1 hour drive from the airport, in the hills above the ocean. It's about 1.5 km (25-min. walk or minutes by car) to Soufriere one way or to Anse Chastanet Beach / Jade Mountain resort the other. We walked to the beach, but road is a little rough and some climbing. In the am it is easy to rent a palapa and chairs for USD$36. For privacy, little further north is Anse Mamin beach, which is among the most beautiful we’ve ever seen anywhere, and deserted.
The Villa left us breathless. Stunning view of the Pitons. Rainbows. Sunsets, hummingbirds, passing tall ships. The house is basically open on three sides to the green, flowered, and lush outdoors. The living area is huge and open, with daybed, hammock, living and dining area. The bedrooms below are enclosed and comfortable. The pool is inviting and the pool deck is a great place to watch stars and enjoy evening sounds. The kitchen is well-appointed. We've traveled a lot and had no issues drinking the water. The house has locking gate, safe, and other lockable grilles in the house. We wondered about living things inside, but there were near zero insects and no animals. We did not use repellent at all. I was worried about sleeping without AC, but nights are temperate 24° and the rooms have fans. No trouble at all.
The villa is also well-equipped with beach and snorkeling gear, AV gear, wifi, BBQ, and tennis court. St. Lucia is 240v, with UK-style 3-prong plugs. There are several Canada/US style plugs and 120v power bar for your electronics.
The service: Verlinda: gracious, helpful, professional, she is in daily to freshen the house, do laundry. She will cook your groceries or will shop for you and cook delicious dinners from her recipe book. She ensured that our initial grocery order and drinks were there on our arrival and dinner was on the table. Alvyn: groundskeeper, was also helpful. Sam: the property manager in FL was available by phone before and during (and made awesome restaurant recommendations). Local drivers—Benton was great—can be called for transfers, groceries, or nights out.
We have high expectations when we travel, and Villa la Bagatelle and its staff exceeded them. Our only regret: we only spent one restful, enjoyable week in this magical place.
Hi Todd... it was wonderful reading what a good time you had and how much you loved staying at Labagatelle. I will certainly share the review with Alvin Verlinda and Sam when I get there next month. They work very hard to make everybody happy and keep the Villa in tip top condition....
La Bagatelle - St. Lucia
February 4, 2019
What an incredible villa on an incredible island! Of all the beautiful places I have traveled to St. Lucia is in the top 5 and La Bagatelle is now my #1 place to have spent time. The open space, whether early in the morning, at evening, or late in the night is as comfortable and inviting as anywhere on earth. So relaxed. Thanks to all who pampered us these past 5 days.

Hi Harvey... I'm so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Labagatelle. Verlinda and Alvin said you were a pleasure to have as a guest and hopefully you come back to visit someday soon... Thanks.. David
Thoroughly enjoyed La Bagatelle
This is a truly amazing place. We wanted to relax and unwind, and La Bagatelle is exactly the place to do that. The setting looks like paradise! And the staff were very friendly and attentive. Charmaine checked in everyday and made sure we had what we needed, Verlinda made our place tidy and prepared wonderful meals for us, while Alvin worked all the time to keep the landscape around the house beautiful. While we were there, Sam, the manager, happened to be in St. Lucia. He checked on us a couple of times too to make sure we were comfortable. We thought about renting a car before we went, but it turned out unnecessary: anytime we needed a ride, we just let Charmaine know and she would arrange the taxi very quickly. The road leading to the villa is steep, but once you get there, looking at the Pitons and the Caribbean Sea, you'll know it’s totally worth the climb!
Thank you for everything! We definitely want to come back again!
Hi Yuteh Ma... Thank you for the review and I’m so glad you enjoyed your stay at Labagatelle.... Hopefully we will see you again... Regards.. David
