Charles and Antonia are so friendly and helpful! This place is on a cocoa plantation but it offers so much more! The pool over looks orange trees which you can pick fruit for yourself! Sitting on the swing in the evening at the great house just watching the fireflies put on a light show is out of this world! You... More

Our family of four stayed at La Dauphine for two nights and wish it could have been more! We started in Castries and found this home high above the city of Soufriere to be a lovely retreat. As mentioned in other reviews, the rich greenery and prolific fruit and spices growing on the estate make it even more special. There... More

I have stayed here more than once. this is a very special place. The peace and quiet you get here is unbelievable. There are no tvs. You hear the rustle of trees and rain.

We had one night here to experience a working plantation and I just wish we had stayed longer here. Swimming in the infinity pool was beautiful just looking up and seeing the rainforest all around.

After the hustle of Rodney Bay we enjoyed our peaceful stay here immensely. I have never drunk so much fresh fruit juice; the novelty of picking and juicing ones own citrus fruits never wore off. Staff are delightful, we we lucky to be provided with some of Antonia's rum cake..."it's the black cake I love".

We enjoyed a relaxing 4 day break at the end of our St Lucia holiday at La Dauphine. The house feels untouched since it's Victorian heyday but has all modern conveniences.

This diamond in the rough estate house is perfect for a family retreat. Both my husband and I lead very busy career lives. With two young boys, we often look for stacation venues which permit us a retreat from the distractions of life. This was perfect.

We stayed for 3 nights in Chateau Lafitte (3 adults) and it was a tropical paradise.
