Villa Lansen – CV11 Cap Estate, St Lucia, Caribbean
General Villas St Lucia
Welcome to Villa Lansan, an exclusive hillside Caribbean paradise decorated with sleek modern furnishings and set within sumptuous, landscaped gardens.
The pebbled winding drive leads up the slope to a spacious parking area behind the single storey villa. Inside and out, there is a motif of arches built from local stone, and a recent high-end restoration has given the property an immaculate and sleek modern finish. However, the central gated courtyard with its own Koi pond ensures the property is filled with natural light and remains connected to the gorgeous surrounding landscape.
After years of green-fingered care and attention the private gardens boast well established trees and tropical shrubs, overlooked by a majestic 60’ infinity pool that appears to flow out to the ocean beyond.
Villa Lansan is a truly idyllic mansion that has it all, offering unspoilt views of the leafy Saint Lucian countryside, exquisite bedrooms, a first-class selection of amenities and an abundance of space across a massive 8000 square foot interior.
Maid and cook service included 6 days a week, Monday to Saturday, 8 am – 3 pm.
Poolman twice weekly
Interior & Grounds
Step inside, and the 8000 square foot home beckons in all directions. The immediate centre of attention is the indoor gated courtyard, with its soothing water feature and deep koi pond (filled with local coy fish and tilapia) open to the blue sky above, a surprisingly Italianate feature in this Saint Lucian family home, throwing light and air throughout the adjacent great room and casual living area.
The living space has two areas: the formal lounge looks onto the villa’s capacious wrap-around verandah and pool deck, through tall, wide French windows which echo the arched style of the entrance. The interior walls are beautiful, textural mixture of coral stone and natural local stone, its silvery grey tones contrasting with the high vaulted, dark stained ceiling, an original feature which was hand-crafted from beautifully finished natural wood. A casual-style TV den complete with a 50 inch smart TV and pool/air hockey table lies to the right off the main living space, and the kitchen and formal dining room open up to the left.
From crisp white cabinetry and modern fixtures to granite countertops and state of the art appliances, the family kitchen at Atlantis is spacious enough for casual dining, and impressively appointed for entertaining. It leads to the formal dining room, with its solid wood, refectory style table and seating room for eight to twelve.
Through every arched window of Villa Lansan there is a breathtaking panorama, and a step through any one of the French windows reveals some of the villa’s extensive views. The outdoor living area is a seamless extension of indoors, with comfortable areas for relaxing and dining, and access to the 60’ infinity pool with its bird’s eye vantage of the hills and golf course below. To the west, the panorama extends from Mount Pimard and Rodney Bay to Pigeon Island, with Martinique sometimes visible on the horizon. To the east, the wraparound verandah peeks towards the Atlantic off Cas En Bas Bay: all around the property, balmy breezes and shady corners keep the indoor and outdoor spaces cool all day long.
Several guest bedrooms are laid out in an interlocking floor plan off the beautiful indoor/outdoor atrium of the courtyard. Cathedral ceilings and lots of arched windows ensure every bedroom is bright and airy.
There are 5 bedrooms in total, the master is located to the right of the courtyard and has a very grand ensuite bathroom, bedroom 2 is to the left of the courtyard and has a queen size bed and an ensuite bathroom. Two more bedrooms, one with a queen bed and another with two double beds share a large Jack and Jill bathroom. To the left of this bedroom is another queen bedroom with an ensuite bathroom and between the two is a cosy tv room, complete with DVD and a small movie selection.
Villa Lansan is a unique and impressive property, sprawling and spacious, but with a warm and welcoming family ambiance, and a layout designed for entertaining. Perched on top of its hilltop vantage point, secluded yet private Villa Lansan boasts a 10 minute drive to most amenities and attractions of Rodney Bay.

Cap Estate was once a thriving 1500 acre sugar plantation covering the entire northern tip of St Lucia and now it is the islands most exclusive residential development. It is also just a few steps from St Lucia Golf Club which is the Island’s only 18 hole course.
Cap Estate is the northernmost point of the island of St Lucia. It is wonderfully quiet and exclusive yet it is only minutes away from Rodney Bay and the stunning beach.
Rodney Bay is one of the most popular yachting destinations in the Caribbean. There is a beautifully landscaped Marina with restaurants, bars, shops and galleries. The Bay is worth visiting during the day to browse through the shops and enjoy a waterside lunch or at night when it becomes lively due to the many night time venues.
For the most part, St. Lucian beaches are relatively short, but with five miles of white sand on Rodney Bay, Reduit is the place for a long stroll by the shore and a swim in calm waters. One of the most popular beaches on the island, it is fronted by the Rex St Lucian Papillon and the Royal St Lucian hotels.
Villa Lansan is also close to the world-renowned Pigeon Island National Landmark. Jutting out into the sea, the Pigeon Island National Landmark is connected to the mainland by a causeway. Pigeon Island is dominated by two small peaks which made excellent observations posts during St Lucia’s more troubled past. There is an interpretive centre as well as a museum and a number of excellent white-sand beaches around the island which provide excellent swimming opportunities

Culture and history infoTHE TOP 10 CARIBBEAN ISLANDS FOR A HOLIDAY September 3, 2015 Beach & Sun, Top 10s Everyone dreams of a Caribbean holiday. With those perfect beaches, crystal clear blue waters and weather so toasty you could spread marmalade on it, these paradise islands really are a dream destination – or more appropriately, destinations. There are over 7,000 islands in the Caribbean (though only about 30 of those are island nations) which means you’ve got a bumper crop when it comes to choosing where you want to go… but which one is right for you? There’s an island that’s right no matter what kind of holiday you’re looking for, whether that’s a full-on, adrenaline fuelled adventure, a romantic break with that special someone or an unforgettable family getaway. Simply browse our list of the top 10 Caribbean islands for your holiday, pick what’s best for you and get booking! 1. Anguilla It’s got less mass tourism than some of the other islands and thanks to the beautiful coastline it’s perfect if you’re into watersports – diving and sailing ahoy! The friendly Anguillan locals are as warm and welcoming as the weather, and the sumptuous holiday villas on offer mean you’ll be able to enjoy the palm-fronted and pristine white beaches in the lap of luxury. Seeing as cruise ships aren’t allowed to dock, there’s markedly less crowds – great for a fantastic honeymoon or romantic break where you can feel that the island is all yours.

Antigua One of the undeniable highlights of Antigua is its abundance of stunning beaches. Whether that’s cocktails for newlyweds on the shore, paddling with the kids in shallow, turquoise coves or diving down into the depths with your trusty scuba gear, Antigua’s gorgeous coastline has you covered. The island also has a fascinating and turbulent history to explore, so be sure to take time out of your sun-worshipping to stroll around and learn a thing or two about the intertwining histories of Europe and the Caribbean. Best for: – Architecture – History – Varied beaches Antigua - Caribbean Antigua – Caribbean 3. Barbados If you like your holidays full of adrenaline and adventure, the huge swathes of beautiful natural parks on Barbados are ideal for exploration while the lively waters are perfect for surfing. Better yet, there’s some varied and spectacular food on offer – everything from tasty street food to high-end dining. The capital of Bridgetown and the island’s many towns love to party, so if you’re after a fun-filled holiday in the Caribbean sun or a honeymoon that’s all about the nightlife, you can’t pick a better spot. Best for: – Shopping – Non-stop holidays – Nightlife Crane beach, Barbados Crane beach, Barbados 4.

Out of town you can play on one of many championship golf courses, scuba dive, go whale-watching, windsurfing, fishing or sailing. For the eco-conscious there are some stunning areas of natural beauty and nature parks too! Best for: – Nature – Water sports – Golf Dominican Republic Dominican Republic 5. Grenada Grenada’s got pretty much everything the Caribbean has to offer.

With such wonderful ingredients the food is superb and hanging out with the locals is a clear highlight. Grenada’s beaches are idyllic, scattered with bars and restaurants and launches for some unforgettable sailing and diving. It’s also the gateway to sleepy sister islands Carriacou and Petite Martinique which become pretty lively during festivals. Best for: – Scuba diving – Food – Culture and history Grenada Grenada 6. Jamaica Big on food and big on flavour, Jamaica’s full of music, life and rhythm. Great if you’re looking for a resort-style holiday and want to spend your time in the thick of the action, living life to the fullest. As the home of reggae and jerk seasoning, you know everything in Jamaica is going to be big and bold, from the beautiful beaches to the Blue Mountain national park, where you’ll find waterfalls and walking trails straight out of some tropical dream. It’s also your ideal island pick if golf is your holiday recreation of choice, with plenty of courses to keep golfers of all abilities happy. Best for: – Food and drink – Music and nightlife – Lively honeymoons 7. St Barts If you like to be seen in the right place (or want to catch those that are) then this is the island for you. St Bart’s is known for its chic islanders, French sophistication and exclusivity. There’s a burgeoning art scene for culture vultures, high-end restaurants for foodies as well as incredible beaches and superb spas for unwinding. For the more active, there’s bird watching or you can explore neighbouring islands by boat, and the abundance of high-end options in just about everything – from haute couture to beach-side villas – means it’s great for a honeymoon if you really want to show your sweetie how much you care. Best for: – Glamour and über luxury – High-end food and drink – Perfect white beaches Saint Barth, Caribbean St Barts, Caribbean 8. St Lucia St Lucia means one thing – luxury! Whether you’re looking for a honeymoon that pulls out all the stops or the kind of holiday where your every whim is catered for, St Lucia has the facilities (not to mention the villa accommodation!) to make it happen. If you’re looking for adventure, try climbing the iconic Pitons, heading into the Chassin rain forest or enjoying some of the world’s best diving. The island’s musical pedigree also means there’s loads to choose from if you fancy a night on the tiles. Just mind your bank balance… Best for: – Adventure holidays – Romantic honeymoons – Spas and pampering 9. St Martin Urbane and unpretentious, St Martin’s laid-back vibe means you’re more likely to find yourself chilling in with a beer in a beach hut than sipping overpriced cocktails in a neon-lit bar. Not that it’s all board shorts and breeziness – thanks to half of the island being run by the French government (the other is a Dutch territory), the French food here is probably the best in the Caribbean, so honeymooners can enjoy some super-romantic evenings out! There’s also a great mix of stuff to do, and it’s well worth splitting your time between lounging on sandy, sun-kissed southern beaches and taking off for an adventure in the mountains if the north. Best for: – Food and dining – Interesting culture – Mountain adventures St Martin St Martin 10. Tobago A true tropical paradise, Tobago is neatly split into a bevy of beautiful beaches on its western side with a dense, expansive rainforest (the oldest protect one in the world!) on the east. This means you’re sorted for trekking through miles of unspoilt foliage – and maybe even a dip next to a genuine tropical waterfall. Tobago is also particularly famed for its diving thanks to some stunning coral reefs and specially sunk wrecks, and there’s an abundance of fun things to do including traditional Easter goat racing and an eclectic mix of festivals, including the annual Jazz festival in April. Best for: – Exploring luscious rainforest – Scuba diving – Boat trips and fishing Olivers Travels
