Imagine an island paradise of unparalleled beauty where the majestic peaks of the Pitons reach to the heavens, the splendor of lush rainforests, and the hypnotizing blue-green waters of the Caribbean break just offshore. Saint Lucia captivates anyone who sets foot on her coastline. Always evocative, she welcomes visitors with her soothing waves, warm beaches, and hospitable people. The only sovereign nation to be named for a woman, the island personifies adventure and inspiration. Her visitors invariably find themselves reluctant to leave and eager to return. If this is paradise, Villa Natura is paradise personified.
Perfectly positioned at the very top Northeast point of the island, in the ultra-exclusive and gated Sea Breeze Heights neighborhood, Villa Natura rises from the sea as the crown jewel of St. Lucia. Indeed, every detail was masterfully executed, from the sustainable design to the architect’s vision to take full advantage of the sensational 360 degree panoramic and unobstructed ocean views. Materials were sourced locally to minimize the carbon footprint and include Bajan coral stone from Barbados, used for the thermal insulating properties, teak doors and windows from Trinidad, clay tiles from St. Lucia and the Dominical Republic.
Villa Natura is one of the most spectacular properties in the world and once inside, you will be mesmerized by the masterful architecture. Limed wood ceilings soar to 20 ft. and the feeling of space inspires awe. The massive coral stone walls are castle like. A cast bench encloses the well of the 8” wide stairs. An open floor plan frames the magnificent views, and the living space seamlessly connects to the landscape, transitioning from the inside to the outside and beyond. Sliding folding doors allow all walls to disappear leaving only 4 supporting white panels 8’ wide. The 16’ roof cantilevers at each corner remove the need for pillars dissecting the vista. The main living area is positioned to maximize the stunning views of Martinique to the North, Atlantic Ocean and the bay of Cas en Bas to the East, the length of the island including the peak of Petit Piton and La Sourciere at South, and the Caribbean Sea and Pigeon Island with magnificent sunsets to the west. A moat inspired by John Lautner’s Acapulco House emits dappled light that reflects from water to the ceiling and presents an ever-changing work of art. The sparkle from the iridescent tiles is like gazing into a box of jewels, the birds that come to drink and bathe are a joy and fascination to watch, and the cooling effect of breeze over water negates the need for air conditioning, a triumph of design and functionality.
The chef’s kitchen flows effortlessly to the dining room where expansive terraces provide the ideal indoor/outdoor lifestyle. 5 en-suite bedrooms are relaxing sanctuaries with private verandas and offer plenty of room for guests/staff. The wooden super-king bedframes were locally crafted and have Hypnos mattresses. 3 floor to ceiling windows are framed invisibly, again connecting you to the view, fins of coral stone with sloping ceilings create the feeling of cosines and security. The sliding teak doors with adjustable louvres allow completely adjustable airflow, enhancing your comfort and serenity. Bathrooms boast dressing areas with hanging space and shelving, double Duravit sinks with Vitra waterfall taps and sunken baths and showers that are outfitted with filler taps, and the convenience of hand held and overhead shower faucets.
Outdoors you will find extensive terraces on different levels, all with glorious views, a BBQ area and a dramatic sparkling saltwater Infinity pool that seemingly floats above the ocean. Villa Natura exemplifies quality of craftmanship and relaxed luxury at every turn and is undoubtedly the best property on the island. The landscape, people, customs, and cuisine of St. Lucia intertwine to provide an ideal lifestyle. Equal parts beauty and mystique, the unique confluence of Caribbean, African, English, and French cultures create an exquisite blend of food, music, and traditions that will inspire and enchant you while presenting a life of luxury and leisure beyond your wildest dreams.
Villa Natura is Paradise Personified.
