The spectacular view from the master bedroom defines Villa Piton's place as truly between the Pitons. In this photo the Gros Piton is on the left, and the Petit Piton is on the right. The view has actually brought tears to our guest's eyes! Proudly  located within a World Heritage Site, Villa Piton sits squarely in the Piton Management Area  high on the ridge between both Pitons! Unique and private without equal!Relax and enjoy your morning coffee and tea from the open air living room while gazing at the Pitons and early morning rainbows!

Descrizione

L'alloggio

It is certain, this is a place unrivaled. We owe tribute for the architecture to the American designer, John DiPol, who built the Villa Piton as his masterpiece and private residence.

Employing DiPol's trademark “open air"-concept, the home expresses its rich surroundings by fusing the lush natural landscape with native St. Lucian materials and furniture to engender a space without bounds.

The natural gray St. Lucian granite and Greenheart woodwork rise gently from its place, high upon the ridge between St. Lucia's most celebrated Pitons, as if nature had intended it.

Outside the home, DiPol's vision of rolling rooflines and louvered Greenheart Jalousie doors combine sweeping openness with absolute privacy. Subtleties in the architecture play upon the old French mill design, preserving the villa's Old World heritage within its Caribbean overtones. Throughout the inside of the villa the red cedar, greenheart and granite stone couple effortlessly with hand-laid terra cotta tile floors, colorful traditional Italian mosaics and local woodcarvings and sculpture art, adding color and texture to compliment the design.

Accesso ospiti

As our guest you have access to all the public spaces within the villa itself and the one acre grounds and lawn. The only locked space is the garage and one small owners closet.

Interazione con gli ospiti

Our villa staff includes Mary our cook and housekeeper and her brother Gregory, the gardener and pool person. How you choose to allow them access during your stay is your wish. Mary can cook for you if you like or you can do this yourself. If you're honeymooning or celebrating an anniversary, you might wish to have privacy all week. Or Mary can stop in one day to do laundry. You choose.

Villa Piton comes stocked with all bed linens and bath and beach towels. So the only thing you need to bring is a bathing suit and sunscreen! We also suggest a good hat and of course sunglasses!

Laundry service can be provided at a charge of $10.00per load. Mary will do her best to insure great service but guests are responsible for their own items and not hold the host responsible for any damages resulting from same.

We can provide shopping service for food to be available at the villa for guests arriving especially on Sundays when stores are closed or for those guests not wishing to be burdened by shopping on their way from the airport. The service charge for this shopping and delivery is $40.00US. We do not provide the service but rather contract it out and thus do not benefit from providing this service to our guests.

Il quartiere

Villa Piton is one of only a very small number of private homes within the Pitons Management Area, A World Heritage Site designated in 2004. Villa Piton actually is built atop the Piton Mitan Ridge linking the two pitons. The villa is actually between the two mountains and not simply looking at them from afar. This perfect perspective is unrivaled for grandeur and breathtaking views 24/7.

Villa Piton's architect John DiPol was also the original entrepreneur who started Dasheene restaurant which later became Ladera Resort. Villa Piton was John's private residence in St Lucia. We enjoy dining at Ladera as well as Hotel Chocolat across the street from Ladera, plus a long list of local food stands and sit down restaurants depending on our appetite! Many are included in the Villa's User Handbook.

The villa is absolutely located in the center of everything great about southern St. Lucia. One mile from Sugar Beach Resort, 7 miles from Ladera, Hotel Chocolat and the Sulphur Springs or drive through volcano as its sometimes called, and just 8.5 miles south of Soufriere, the ancient capital of St Lucia. There are protected snorkeling preserves in a mile, zip lines and historical plantation tours within 7-8 miles, and fresh fish markets and harbors merely 4 miles south or 8.5 miles north. Better yet, few if any traffic lights or traffic jams to slow you down. This is relaxing and unwinding as it should be. On your terms!

Un giro nei dintorni

Getting around is best accomplished by rental car, or taxi if you prefer. We prefer having a car. the roads are good and its more fun to see the scenery!
We recommend using Ben's West Coast Jeeps for your rental car. You should book early and request an SUV if at all possible. Ben's been working with us for a decade and we prefer keeping the number of taxis coming and going to just one company for privacy and safety. We ask that all guests abide by this as a rule as it is our private home and we don't wish to have numerous outsiders coming and going.

Altre cose da evidenziare

Your arrival will be as simple as possible with an airport shuttle from Hewanorra Airport, St Lucia to Villa Piton provided by us! This complimentary shuttle applies to airport transfer only! In other words we shuttle you to and from Villa Piton if you fly in and out the days of your stay start and departure. If you are presently on island your transportation to Villa Piton is your cost although we suggest you use Bens West Coast Jeeps as your carrier! We highly recommend a rental car during your stay and will help you with the details and make that simple as well. For example, you can have a rental car delivered to Villa Piton the evening of your arrival or the next morning, which ever you prefer. We can help with either! We like to work with Ben's West Coast Jeeps as he'll be picking you at the airport and helping with shopping on the way to the villa. We offer cooked meals as a service by our cook and housekeeper Mary on the night of arrival or any night of your stay for a cooking fee of 30EC ($12.00US)per person. You provide the groceries, local fresh caught fish or vegetables, and Mary cooks and cleans for you at the equivalent of $12.00 per person per meal. This too makes the arrival process easy and relaxing! Ask about menu options when you speak with us and we'll be happy to arrange a local dinner prepared as you like it! If your arrival is scheduled for a Sunday please be aware mostly all stores are closed for food shopping and we recommend having us procure your groceries to stock the fridge and kitchen! The fee is $40US plus grocery invoice.
Villa Piton has Internet service which can be at times interrupted by the fact that our service provider actually wired it on coconut trees! Because of this fact sometimes service is interrupted. The equipment inside the villa is three state of the art WiFi hubs. This normally provides good service everywhere. The router is provided by our Internet provider and is also new.
There are no bath tubs in any of the three baths at Villa Piton but rather hand tiled showers. Three showers in total in three bath rooms.

It didn't take long to realize this is the best place to stay on the island. The view simply can't be beat. Kermit is fantastic at responding quickly to any questions you have before or during your trip. A few tips for your stay at Villa Piton: 1. A rental car is pretty much a necessity. Driving on the left side with narrow roads is quite scary at first, but you get used to it and it's the best way to see and do things on the island. Most everything (gros Piton, waterfalls, sulphur springs, hotel chocolat, ladera, etc) are within a 15-20 minute drive. We rented from Ben's as suggested by Kermit and have no complaints about the company. 2. You have to hike the Gros Piton (if you're physically capable). It's right down the road from the Villa. The climb is exhausting, but so worth it! 3. When you are picked up from the airport, ask for the driver to take you to the grocery store. Try to get everything you need for the week in 1 trip. This grocery store is much better than the one in soufriere, and a bit of a drive if you need to go a second time. 4. HAVE MARY COOK FOR YOU! We were hesitant to do so because we wanted to go out or cook ourselves, but after reading all the reviews in the guestbook at the house, we finally asked her to cook our last meal in St. Lucia. She is incredible, and it was probably the best food we ate all week. 5. If you don't ask otherwise, either mary or Gregory will be at the house every day cleaning the pool and whatnot. They are very sweet, however it is not ideal to have them show up bright and early every morning of your honeymoon. If you'd like some privacy, tell them (politely) they can take a few days off. They get paid the same whether they come or not, so you are not offending them by asking them not to come clean. 6. Martha's tables is the best local restaurant. The food is delicious and the prices are cheaper than resorts by far. If you have a car, follow the main road and make a left into the sugar beach entrance. Martha's will eventually be on your left and is a yellow building. 7. Even if you hike the Piton, the Tet Paul nature trail is still worth it (definitely do this if you aren't physically capable of the gros Piton). It's an easy walk with stunning views. You can even take a picture that looks like you're touching the top of the petit Piton! Other activities and food I can recommend: sulphur springs, toraille waterfall, botanical gardens and diamond waterfall (mineral baths here are not worth it), Piton waterfall, sugar beach, water taxi from sugar beach to anse chastanet, walk 10 min from anse chastanet to anse mamin (one you're there it's easy to see...

Villa Piton is a lovely house. The pictures, as beautiful as they are, do not do justice to the view. We appreciated the comfort and privacy of having our own villa as compared to staying in a resort. The rooms are extremely comfortable and enjoy wonderful breezes which makes for comfortable sleeping. The pool was very nice, we spent a couple of days just at the house resting and swimming in our own oasis! Mary and Gregory took great care of us. We recommend taking a water taxi from Sugar Beach to Anse Chastenet if you are interested in snorkeling other places, the road there is a challenge, even for local drivers! We had a wonderful stay and hope to return soon!

The most spectacular view that cannot be beaten. We were totally in love with the place. The outdoor/indoor space was breathtaking. The attention to detail was brilliant. Fitted 8 of us and loads of baggage very comfortably. They provided a phone to call staff directly. Loved we had loads of dvds and games to play. The perfect secluded getaway. Very remote so will need driver or a car yourself and be confident to drive very winding roads. Beautifully decorated. We had a masseuse from sugar beach come to the house from a number in the guestbook which was amazing. Mary, Greg, Kevin and Wendy were great, and the food they made easily for 8 of us was amazing. We would love to come back and stay again

This place is amazing! The view alone made leaving the villa nearly impossible. The villa was conveniently located to some of the coolest attractions in St. Lucia. Mary, Gregory and Ben's West Coast Jeeps were extremely helpful and welcoming too. Thank you Kermit for sharing your home with us!

Just a super villa with incredible views. The place is genuinely as good as the pictures suggest, and maybe even better. Kermit is an outstanding host and was incredibly professional, responsive and helpful. The house staff Mary and Greg are some of the nicest people you'll meet. A great holiday for two families of four. Plenty of space in this well equipped and beautiful villa. If considering St. Lucia, give this place serious consideration. You won't regret it!

Villa Piton is more beautiful than pictures and the view and scenery is the best on the island!! Everything you could want for entertainment & relaxation is provided. We did rent a 4-wheel drive vehicle which was needed a couple of times as we drove around the entire island. That won't be necessary next visit as we discovered the beauty of the Caribbean and peaceful atmosphere is right there. Mary, the housekeeper, fixed us a meal of fresh Mahi Mahi and the works and it was the best meal we had while in St. Lucia...even at the resorts where we paid lots of $$$$. We loved it there and the view was awesome and everyone working there were wonderful!!
