The property is located in the Quarter of Choiseul at Morne Sion, directly at the Caribbean coast in a natural landscape with indigenous people and nature. There are 3 beaches in short distance, the closest 50 meters from the property, another further north 5 Minutes by car and south to Choiseul the beach Sabwisha at 10 minutes driving distance. The fishing village Choiseul is at 15 minutes driving distance. The natural trail to the rain forest by the pitons is at 30 minutes distance. The international Airport Hewanorra ist at 30 minutes driving distance at the town Viewfort. Further north you find the Soufriere with its sulfur springs and typical West-Indian laid-back culture of a town formed by traditional fishing. The capital Castries and the very touristic area Reduit is located in the north and 1.5 hours away.
You can reach the property by a small road along the coast or from the road at Fond Doux. The estate has access to electricity and water. The vegetation is typical for St. Lucia like palm trees, plums, mangoes and other tropical growth. You will find all necessary infrastructure as supermarket, bank, post office in the close Choiseul village. In addition you will get here every day fish directly fresh from the see as well as all kinds of tropical fruits and crops. Local and international restaurants are spread all over the countryside as well as the typical rum shops which invite you to relax and enjoy the amazing golden twilight and sunsets at this part of the island.
The use of the land is very flexible since the relief is gently sloping and therefore the construction of many houses on the property is possible without interfering with the outrageous view of each house. The construction of one big house up to a resort of several smaller houses is possible. The owners have made already an architectural plan for a big wooden (green heart) house with two units of 2 bedrooms, 2 floors, swimming pool, water tanks, solar system, all embedded in a French Victorian style. The exposure to the sea allows also the use and construction of a windmill. There is no house on the property now, just walls of the windmill as indicated on the photos. The touristic use is supported by the government with duty free and import licenses.
House & Home comments St. Lucia as an attractive real estate market. â€úSt. Lucia charms are luring high-end buyersâ€ú
Christos Poravas of SothebyÂ´s International Realty says about St. Lucia: â€úSeven years after the crash it is on the â€úreboundâ€Ě. Itâ€ôs a buyers market.â€Ě
Giles Hannah, senior-vice-president at Christies International Real Estate says in 2016: â€úIn the prime Caribbean markets, the last 12 months have seen prices recover to 2012.â€Ě
and: I think the leader in the Caribbean is still St Barts. Yet St. Lucia is not to be ignored. In a league of high-end Caribbean destinations IÂ´d put St. Lucia second or third with Barbados. â€úIn other made-up leagues, you might even put it first. In a Piton league, perhaps. â€¦ Gros and Petit Piton â€ď two volcanic rocks that jut from the sea to sky in south-west St. Lucia, rocks of such beauty that to see them is to be in love. In this league, St. Barts cannot compete. St. Lucia has also the worldÂ´s only Â´drive-inÂ´ volcano. And it has charm!â€Ě
Let your eyes wander over the blue and turquoise sea with the visible neighbor islands St. Vincent and Martinique. Surrounded by former sugar cane plantations the estate is gently sloping to the sea and embraced by the breath taking scenery of the pitons. The position of this peace of paradise is predestined for a private villa or a touristic (honeymoon) resort.
Construction plans for Victorian wooden villa available, at ca. 200 mÂ².
Sufficient size on the property for resort/hotel.
Romantic bays with turquoise sea, inspiring views of the sapphire blue sea and lush green coastline, tropical vegetation, incredible fauna, gentle climate, cultural events like the annual jazz-festival with international stars and local parties, in combination with typical Caribbean life at its best: St. Lucia is therefore called the pearl of the Caribbean or â€úbeautiful Helena of the Westâ€Ě. With 616 square kilometers in the Eastern Caribbean it is a little smaller than Hamburg or Berlin but which city in the world has 2 nobel price laureates?
St. Lucia has ca. 180000 inhabitants and is a stable solid democracy and member of the Commonwealth. The Queen of England is still the head of the country.
The south at Choiseul is a little laid back, however you find there a very friendly and hearty community where you can experience real West Indian life. Indigenous people as well as tourists enjoy the attractions of the countryside and a quiet life in the tropical nature. The biggest parish of Saint Lucia Choiseul is maybe one of the nicest places in the caribbean since you will rarely find such a variety of preserved and beautiful nature in the windward island as in St. Lucia, which is also the reason why people call it the Pearl Of The Caribbean.
