C’est La Vie is its own little oasis on the Trouya Pointe peninsula, where privacy, peace and tranquility are only interrupted by bird songs and crashing of waves. Landscaped gardens completely surround the property highlighted by yellow, red, pink and gold flowers. The main house and its adjoining cottage and apartment are truly unique and reveal both traditional Caribbean as well as Balinese influences.The full-service villa team will make you feel like you are staying at your own private boutique hotel!
Start each day on the upper veranda where a lounge set and breakfast table give you a perfect vantage points for your eyes to wander from ornate curved eaves to carved hardwood railings to the endless green landscape. Saunter down to the swimming pool and dip your head under the waterfall. Dry off on a chaise longue before retiring to the nearby daybed. Refresh yourself under the outdoor shower then join your guests at the Banana Bar or fire up the barbecue.
There are several living rooms where you can all gather. Each one boasts soft sofas adorned with designer fabrics and surrounded by elegant antique wooden furniture, accessories and attractive louver windows. Enjoy meals in the dining area or one of several al fresco tables. A professional chef can also be retained to create gourmet feasts.
C’est La Vie contains five of St. Lucia’s most exquisitely designed bedrooms, each named after a local tree and clad with designer fabrics, soft linens and exotic, tasteful furnishings. Three bedrooms are in the main home, all with a private veranda, en-suite bathrooms, including walk-in shower and air conditioning. A fourth room is found in the separate cottage also with en-suite bathroom, private veranda and a study. The final room is in a comfortably furnished apartment at pool level. Its en-suite houses a handmade soak tub.
When you’re ready to explore, a private path leads you to a cove, perfect for snorkeling and numerous other beaches are found nearby. St. Lucia’s best golf course is just 20 minutes away on Cap Estate. Rodney Bay and Castries are both about a 15 minute drive and there you’ll find upscale shopping, fine dining and nightlife.

A truly relaxing and pampered holiday. The whole experience at C'est La Vie from start to finish was to remember. Oshee and the staff were waiting to greet us with drinks and cold towels. The property itself was immaculate and the location stunning. Nothing was too much trouble and all in all fantastic! - Peter C., , UK

The villa experience was outstanding! the facilities were great, but the staff was what made this a fantastic vacation. Everyone - from the Butler, to the chef to the personal concierge to the support staff to the maid - were genuinely friendly and anticipated our needs. We cannot say enough about the overall experience. This was like going to a small boutique hotel - but much better. - Laddie S., ,

The villa was beautiful. The staff was even more beautiful! For a few years we were told not to bring the kids to St. Lucia over other islands as it wasn\'t that kid friendly or the sand was black....couldn\'t be further from the truth! A few black specs in the sand?? Who cares! Rocks around the beach because its a volcanic island? Not on the Windward beach. How about waterfalls, zip lining, snorkeling, access 1/4 mile away to a great beach at a resort.... I could go on and on about the island. The staff is really the treat. Wake up to the smell of breakfast. Have a small phone provided with every room that allows you to call staff at any time for a pot of coffee, beer, food, whatever! Make sure you add the dinner - we ate at the villa every night which was a change for us. Alvin is an excellent cook. But what was most impressive is the way in which the chef handled my son\'s 40 some odd food allergies without a hitch! Put a price on that. We would love to return! - Thomas H., New Jersey, USA
