Louise and Normand are great hosts: this little hotel out-charms any of the bigger Caribbean resorts we have visited because of their hard work and friendly approach. If you would like to see St Lucia without being shut inside a big resort, then you couldn't do better. Our lovely upstairs room was very private, spacious and airy. Breakfasts were informal (we sat on the balcony outside our room most days) and the food was ideal, lots of fruit complemented by Louise's wonderful baking. We had a different baked treat for every one of the 9 days we stayed. Normand knows the island very well and is a great source of advice. He will arrange tours and trips and make restaurant bookings. He is also a kind chauffeur in the evenings when the steep road to the village would be tricky to navigate. He will entertain and inform with his jokes, charm and some local gossip. The position up the hill means that the Inn has a fantastic view of Marigot Bay which is a lovely, natural hurricane hole. The bay really is the nicest spot on the island. There isn't much here, but that is a huge part of the charm. There are some good restaurants and a few shops. If you want to take some trips, then a car is useful but we also took a great sailing tour down the coast. Marigot Bay is brilliantly based between Castries/Rodney Bay and Soufriere (where many of the tourist spots are found) making it ideal for exploring.
Give this place a try if you are looking for luxurious, friendly, independent travel.
