Arc En Ciel
Caribbean / St. Lucia / Soufriere
'Arc En Ciel' is a wonderful property, spectacularly situated on Beau Estate, between the World Heritage site of the Pitons. The property is situated above the Caribbean Sea and is a short distance from Jalousie Beach and hotel. The nearest town is Soufriere, which is a sleepy fishing village.
'Arc En Ciel' has been imaginatively designed to a very high standard by architect Lane Pettigrew, who has also created the interior design with handmade furniture from Honduras and some select pieces from Tommy Bahama. The house incorporates many aspects of traditional Caribbean style with its verandas, jalousie shutters, and wooden railings. It has been constructed as a number of small pavilions connected by verandas. The exterior of the house has been partially finished with a facing of hand-chipped stones to resemble the exterior of the forts, which were constructed on the island many hundreds of years ago. The house is situated in an extensive, landscaped garden that has a wide variety of tropical flowers and trees.
'Arc En Ciel' has five double bedrooms, all of which are air-conditioned with ceiling fans. Each bedroom has its own TV, DVD player, and stereo. The first bedroom has a queen-size bed and a patio with a unique view of Petit Piton. There is an en-suite bathroom with views of the mountain from the Jacuzzi bath and the shower. There is a private swimming pool and sun deck situated off the bathroom, in an enclosed garden area. Bedrooms two and three each have a queen-size bed, a private patio, and an en-suite bathroom with shower and Jacuzzi. Bedrooms four and five, which are situated downstairs and open onto the swimming pool deck, each have two single beds, a private patio, and an en-suite bathroom with shower and Jacuzzi.
The living/dining room is situated in the center of the house and is tastefully furnished and equipped with a TV, DVD player, and stereo. The formal dining table can seat ten guests. This room opens out onto a patio which leads to a spectacular dining gazebo, where guests can dine with the backdrop of the Caribbean Sea and the Pitons.
The entertainment areas are situated downstairs. Here you enjoy the outdoor living of the Caribbean in the large, covered patio with a casual dining area and bar with its own fridge. This leads onto an extensive pool deck and a series of smaller pool patios. There is a comfortable, air-conditioned family room with two large sofas, one of which can convert into a double bed. The infinity-edge pool weaves its way around this area and includes a stone cave with a waterfall. A modern, well-equipped kitchen completes the villa.
