Villa Pierre is set in the mountainside of Moule-à-Chique, a neighbourhood of Vieux Fort, the second hub in importance on the island. Although furnished with all the services (supermarkets, ATMs, etc.), Vieux Fort offers a laid-back and countryside atmosphere, removed from the tourist scene and immersed in the local flavours. Here you'll get the possibility to experience Saint Lucia as a local, not as a tourist. That's why we say that Villa Pierre is both a location and an experience.
Vieux Fort is somewhat "off the beaten track" and that's largely its appeal. Here you'll find a local street market on Saturdays, a fish market directly at the docks, a few local shops, roadside BBQ stands, two beach restaurants, small eateries and ATMs, supermarkets, gas, etc. Villa Pierre is only but five minutes away from it all but despite its proximity, walking to "town" is not recommended. The walk back up is challenging in the tropical sun and we highly recommend hiring or renting a vehicle.
Within a 15-mile radius of the villa you will find: rain forests, waterfalls, hiking, horseback gallops on the beach, natural sulphur springs, and more. After your adventure-filled days, you'll love returning to the peacefulness and privacy of the villa. The South is a well-kept secret but now with Villa Pierre, you can explore it with all the comforts of home. Casinos, shopping malls, cruise ships and nightlife are up north. It will take you 1.5 hour to reach this area which makes for a pleasant day trip.
Villa Pierre is situated on a headland that cuts into the Caribbean Sea to the West, and the Atlantic Ocean to the East. You can choose which ocean to visit just by turning left or right at the roundabout...
ATLANTIC COAST: Five minutes away is one of Saint Lucia's longest and most unspoilt beaches: Anse de Sable (meaning "Sandy Beach"). A top spot in the Caribbean for windsurfers and kiteboarders and formerly a Club Med beach.
CARIBBEAN COAST: A turquoise beach lies 15 minutes away in the colourful and authentic fishing village of Laborie.
