To keep this short and sweet -- La Bagatelle is perfect. We have stayed in many places around the world, and I can honestly say we have never enjoyed a week in a private villa more. The house is drop-dead gorgeous, from its location to its furnishings and amenities. The owner, Nancy, is a genuine person with a vibrant personality that shows in every nook and cranny of the house which is furnished in beautiful West Indian antiques and handmade pieces of artistry and craftsmanship. The photos you will see on the rental sites are authentic and accurate. There is no a/c and no television, and we didn't miss either. You should also know that there are few exterior walls which means that you'll have adorable tiny tree frogs visiting you in the evening, but there is ample super-fine mosquito netting around all of the beds so you won't have a single bite or scare at night whilst sleeping. The views from the 2400 sq.ft.main platform of the house are simply stunning -- Les Deux Pitons seem like you can reach out and touch them, and we must have shot 10,000 photographs of them! The house staff of Valinda, Krystal, and Paul are gentle, lovely, and warm -- they arrive every day at 9 am and leave at 3 pm, so you might want to give them a day off now and again so you have a bit more privacy, but they are a pleasure to interact with. The house and grounds are immaculate, equipped with everything you could possibly need. The only negative at all is the Anse Chastenet Road which you must travel to get to the magnificent location of the house, but once you've done it, it's okay. (See Reedprincess's apt description of this infamous road!) Just don't try it the first time at night. Please feel free to PM me if you have specific questions that you'd like me to answer. Thank you, Nancy, for the perfect vacation.
