Located on the peninsula of Trouya Pointe, St Lucia, C'est la Vie has been planned so that you can live your vacation on a whim. Each day can be prepared for you or you can rise when you wish and do as you please.
A completely relaxing environment has been created to provide you with complete freedom to choose...what to do, where to go, when to eat...we provide the options but it's your choice.
Designed in traditional Caribbean style with some Balinese influence, C'est la Vie offers a free flowing layout allowing comfort and privacy amidst carefully landscaped tropical gardens, abundant with fruit, where often the only sound is birdsong or the lapping of waves on the nearby shore.
Integral to C'est la Vie's concept is tranquility and serenity assisted by Nature.
A short pathway leads from C'est la Vie to a tranquil, secluded cove from which snorkelers may search for reef fish or lobster and strong swimmers may circumnavigate the peninsula and find themselves in another quiet cove with a beautiful sandy beach. This is the site of a future cluster of Luxury Villas being built by the Owners of C'est la Vie and it can also be reached on foot in about five minutes; either cove is ideal for a picnic or a barbeque.
C'est la Vie is situated close to the Windjammer Landing Hotel, between the city of Castries and the touristic area of Rodney Bay with its restaurants, Marina and shops. It is close enough to be a part of the activities yet, due to its location, remains apart from and undisturbed by the bustle.
The five bedrooms of C'est la Vie exude an authentic Caribbean ambience with natural breezes combining with ceiling fans to comfort and nurture you whilst air conditioning is available if required.
Each room is named after a nearby tree and the Julie Mango verandah is slightly reduced in width in order to accommodate the spreading branches.
The rooms are spacious with an abundance of closet space. Flat panel televisions are provided and DVDs may be borrowed from our collection or rented from the nearby library.
A mini cell phone provides direct access to the butler and the concierge whether the Guest is at home or away from C'est la Vie and cell phones with international access can be provided if required.
Everything has been designed with our Guests in mind, including wheelchair accessibility to the swimming pool and most of the property.
