Beautiful Villa Frangipani: lovely house, gorgeous views
Villa Frangipani was one of the highlights of your 3-week holiday in the Caribbean (Martinique and St. Lucia). The house itself is beautiful and very attractively designed and laid out and the verandah, with its loungers and rocking chairs, is a delight. It’s also cool and airy, and although fans are provided we didn’t need to use them.
The views are fabulous at all hours of the day, and the sunsets are spectacular.
Another plus point is that the furniture and crockery etc. are also attractive: not an afterthought, as in some holiday rentals. You feel as if you're a guest in a real home, which is very nice.
Dylyn, the owner, sent us a helpful newsletter before we arrived, with lots of tips about places to see and things to do in St Lucia, and some useful local contacts. For example, Julie, the villa's joint manager, who also cooked us a wonderful meal; and Paulie, a super-helpful and friendly driver who took us on a tour of local beaches. In the end we opted for Vigie beach: it's nearby and never too full, and great for long walks at the water's edge. We did hire a car, which we found indispensable for shopping and getting to and from the beach. I felt a real sense of accomplishment once I finally plucked up the courage to drive down to Soufriere, where we spent a few days, as my husband had been doing all the driving up till then.
There's a well-equipped utility room in the Villa with a line for drying clothes, but an additional line or clothes horse would be helpful, for beach towels etc.
Our one regret is that we didn't stay longer - we were only there for 6 days. We'd love to go back and stay for a couple of weeks to really enjoy this beautiful home to the full.
Thank you, Dylyn and all your great team!
Honest and truthful about our beloved villa Frangipani, these guests make me happy that they had a good time staying there.
Perhaps they had not noticed (or read our Newsletter) that there is a special area for drying clothes out of doors, which is situated on the level below the villa. You get to it via steps to the left of the building. But this is a very minor point. This nice family will be welcome to stay at the villa Frangipani at any time in the future.
Maison très agréable
Maison agréable à vivre. Superbe vue.
Accueil très agréable si vous avez besoin on vous envoie un chauffeur et aussi vous pouvez demander que l on vous prépare un repas (cuisine locale delicieuse).
My husband and I live in London, UK, so we usually do not have physical connection with our guests. However, our Manager Julie says that Ms Goualou and her party told her that they loved our villa and the fabulous views overlooking the city. Julie also went on to say that she prepared dinner several times for this party of six which was thoroughly enjoyed by them all.
We had a fantastic two weeks at the Villa.
Frangipani is a fantastic Villa with lots of natural breeze blowing through. We stayed there for my Daughters wedding.The ceremony was held on the balcony with fabulous views of Vigie Beach and the Castries Harbour in the background.A sunset to die for as we dined for the reception, one can only say but it has to be experienced to enjoy the full beauty. Thank you Dylyn we had a blast
Thanks for this really lovely review of the villa Frangipani.
We're so happy that your daughter's wedding reception was such a happy occasion and we look forward to you spending time in the villa again.
Un endroit merveilleux
Nous avons passé un séjour formidable dans la villa Frangipani. Cette maison qui allie qualité, raffinement et propreté irréprochable est tout simplement parfaite pour passer un séjour sur l’île de Sainte-Lucie. Placée sur les hauteurs de Castries elle offre une vue à couper le souffle et ce quelque soit la pièce dans laquelle vous vous trouvez. L'endroit est un très bon point de départ pour partir à la découverte de l'île (attention les routes sont très mauvaises prévoir un 4x4 pour se rendre dans les anses).
Nous avons été accueillies de façon très chaleureuse par les maîtres des lieux.
Chris, qui parle un français irréprochable, est toujours prêt à vous rendre service et vous faire découvrir les richesses de l'île : visite du marché, découverte culinaire, et sans jamais s'imposer le tout dans une classe "so british !".
Vous aurez également la possibilité d'avoir des repas d'un super rapport qualité / prix et typiques servis à domicile que vous pourrez déguster sur la terrasse, toujours avec cette vue imprenable sur la baie de Castries (merci à Julie et Kisha).
Pour conclure, si vous voulez découvrir Sainte-Lucie, pas de doute c'est à Frangipani qu'il faut se rendre les yeux fermés.
Merci encore à Dylyn et Chris pour leur gentillesse et leur hospitalité.
Julie, Denis, Adeline, Jean-Philippe et Romain.
Thank you so much for your kind review. I am really glad you enjoyed your stay at our beloved Frangipani. It was a pleasure to make your acquaintance and I hope we meet again. My husband persuaded me to give you my response in French verse. He is strange, he admires La Fontaine, and he is not a poet, so I hope you can forgive him.
En lisant les choses que vous avez ecrites,
comme Maitre Corbeau "je ne me sens pas de joie"
et je voudrais bien croire que vous ne dites
que la verite au sujet de ma villa
mais ne plaisantez vous pas mon drole
de mari qui ne parle guere mieux
que la fameuse vache espagnole
la langue de vos illustres aieux?
Sunsets, rainbows, and the view!
My husband Nic and I had a wonderful 2 week stay at Villa Frangipani. We loved that the house was located in a local neighborhood with friendly, helpful people. The openness of the house allowed for wonderful breezes. We enjoyed exploring the island in our rental car and hired Paulie to drive us to the Jump-ups (a street party with great food) on Friday nights. He's a gem and very responsible.
We absolutely loved the large, comfortable porch and spent most of our time enjoying the view, listening to the sounds, and watching the beautiful sunsets! After a rain, we would see large, colorful rainbows, really magical! We ate delicious local food, even buying freshly caught Mahi from local fisherman. On our first night, Julie cooked a delicious traditional caribbean meal for us, served with Hidden's tasty rum punch!! We were fortunate that the owners, Dylyn and Chris were visiting from London. Delightful people we enjoyed spending time with. A great experience on St. Lucia at the Villa Frangipani!!
I apologise for my poor English, but I would like to say that the twelve days we spent in Saint Lucia, at the villa Frangipani, were beyond our dreams.
Forget Rodney Bay, you can find such touristic places everywhere, but you wouldn't find another villa Frangipani. It is located in a pleasant neighbourhood, with nice people around to help you if you need it. Hidden and his wife Julie are just great and... good cooks too. And Paulie is a gentleman I regret not having known better.
A breathetaking view from the veranda, singing birds on the trees all around, reggae and calypso instead of alarm clocks and an island with fascinating historic background.
of course there are beaches, and in Saint Lucia they are wonderful, but why not, also, talking to the beautiful people of Saint Lucia ? They have plenty to say about life, economic issues, richness and poverty. About the use of chemicals in agriculture, about the place of the Caribbeans islands in the world.
And about music and parties. Saint Lucia is a musical island and villa Frangipani the most wonderful score of the Caribbeans.
I understand your English perfectly Bernard! The villa Frangipani is my big love and you've made my heart sing with your comments. It is true that there are many places for tourists to stay - some very luxurious too - but there is only one villa Frangipani of its kind in St Lucia. The people in the community are generous and kind, many of them (including my managers) are my own extended family, so there is no shortage of thoughtful attention to my guests.
I have sent a copy of your review to Paulie, my driver, as I'm sure he will be pleased to read it.
Ikke bare en havudsigt - vores spektakulære, panoramaudsigt vil banke dine sokker off! Vi har udsigt til byen og de omkringliggende bakker, havn munden, strand, lille lufthavn, de Vigie halvøen, flere bugter og vige smedet af det caribiske hav, og der er øen Martinique, medens dette vaske op! Beliggende i hjertet af en semi-landlige kvarter, medlemmer af samfundet er for det meste relateret og har en følelse af ansvar for hinanden. Denne omsorgsfulde gæstfrihed er udvidet til at Frangipani gæster, men der er ingen indtrængen på privatlivets fred. Langt fra madding crowd, men inden for rækkevidde af restauranter, klubber og shopping, er villaen kun 1 mile til centrum af byen, også 1 mile til den lokale strand - en 20-30 minutters gåtur, hvis du er nogenlunde passer, eller en meget kort transport rejse gennem de mest maleriske landskaber i det østlige Castries. Ikke absolut nødvendigt at leje en bil, små 12-sæders offentlig transport busser er masser af sjov og busstoppestedet er kun værfter fra villaen.
Andre Aktiviteter: helikopter sight-seeing
Golf: St. Lucia Golf & Country Club er omkring 5 miles fra villaen Frangipani. Det er åbent hele året rundt og er udstyret med den kun 18-hullers golfbane på øen. Placeret på Cap Estate, er dette kursus sat i grønne rullende bakker med en fantastisk panoramaudsigt over Atlanterhavet og safir vand i det caribiske hav.
