We wanted to stay in St. Lucia at the Villa Beach Cottages more than the 5 days that were available so we gave La Dauphine Estate a try for 2 nights. We stayed at the small house because the large one was booked. It was a great experience. They have an orchard that we picked our own fruit. We hiked... More

Luckily for us, and many other discerning travellers, Colin Hunte, the Manager of Villa Beach Cottages, Choc Bay, Castries, had the foresight to open up the family estate, La Dauphine, to guests. Since adding an infinity pool which is surrounded by luxurious vegetation, the estate has become well-nigh perfect and an absolute must for families, honeymooners, groups and the like.... More

We did an adventure package which included a stay at Villa Beach Cottages and included a car. La Dauphine is exactly what we needed to get away, beautiful grounds all to yourself to roam and explore. We were there during cocoa season and got to watch the process of preparing the beans for drying which was very interesting. We were... More

We traveled in February 2011 - sorry for the delay to post. Also see my review for Villa Beach Cottages - their hotel property on the northern end of the island. We spent a couple of nights at La Dauphine Estate in the larger of the two homes, and this was an experience I would recommend for everyone. It gives... More

Ideally situated in the solitude of the countryside, La Dauphine Estate offers old plantation style ambience with modern facilities. Set in acres of carefully tended lush tropical gardens, the Great House is perched on a hillside with views from the wraparound veranda of the surrounding area. A beautiful infinity pool blends into the natural surroundings and affords ultimate privacy. The... More

My husband and I spent two vacations at La Dauphine. What an idyllic place! The house has retained all of its Victorian character and yet is comfortable. The pool and vegetation are magnificent. One can take wonderful walks on the property, and, best of all, Charles and Antonia who oversee the property and estate are the most wonderful and helpful... More

Our second visit to La Dauphine was as enchanting and welcoming as the first some time ago. We received the same genuine higs and greetings as if we were long lost family. La Dauphine Estates is nestled on a slope within the rainforest with its breathtaking view of the Pitons and surrounding countryside. The Estate itself is comprised of a... More

La Dauphine Estate is a remarkable place to stay in St. Lucia. The setting, while removed from the beaches, is quickly made up by its outstanding placement within a working plantation and away from hustle and bustle. All staff on the premise - especially Antonia the housekeeper and Charles the estate manager - are outstandingly hospitable. The beauty, value, and... More

My significant other and two other couples wanted to take a tropical vacation. We had all done the all-inclusive resort type vacation and wanted something different. We decided on La Dauphine Estate, which is a large plantation house on the Southern portion of the island in Soufriere. I definitely recommend renting a car for this house. The beaches, town, restaurants,... More

We stayed at La Dauphine for 3 nights. Antonia and Charles provided the warmest of welcomes. Make sure to have Antonia prepare a meal for you...delicious. The Estate is very clean and has a fantastic new pool. Very quiet and relaxing. It makes for a great base of operations for visiting the Pitons and other great attractions in the Soufriere... More
