Luxury Villa Rentals
One of the Windward Islands, St. Lucia is located in the Caribbean Sea just north of Barbados. This small volcanic island is best known for its beautiful black sand beaches, dense rainforest and landmark Piton Mountain peaks. During your St. Lucia villa vacation, you can immerse yourself in the amazing natural resources by taking a guided tour of the jungle and a zipline through the treetops. Hike to Diamond Falls, where you’ll discover waterfall-fed pools, botanical gardens and steaming mineral baths. Even witness sea turtles making the yearly trek to shore to lay their eggs. Or simply relax and unwind on the beach. In the quaint colorful cities of Castries and Soufriere, taste typical Caribbean cuisine, like fish stew, curry roti and spicy jerk meats. You’re also sure to have a banana or two—they’re the island’s leading export. In fact, you can learn about St. Lucia’s modern agricultural economy on a visit to Balenbouche Estate, a former 18th century sugar plantation turned organic farm. The emphasis on sustainability and eco-consciousness is a theme that appears regularly on St. Lucia.
