you ever had a problem finding a holiday destination which suites
the whole family? Somewhere
the children want a beach to kick a ball, make new friends and not
be under close scrutiny every minute and the adults are not too keen
on being lined up in deck chairs, shoulder to shoulder!
Somewhere restaurants cater with tempting meals for children
and for adults with something more sophisticated.
Where there’s a whole choice of water-sports and they
don’t double the cost of your hotel bill.
Days when you can wake and make your own tea, have breakfast
or a light lunch on your own terrace and still have the choice of
four restaurants within a few minutes stroll. Somewhere that the
staff have time to make you feel at home. I have just the place for you!
unlike any other Caribbean resort; it was conceived, designed and
built as a village. Patterned
on the picturesque villages of the Mediterranean, it nestles into a

difference between a banana and a plantain?
out can be a treat in St Lucia and in recent years the quality of
restaurants has improved. It is still an experience to go local, so
try the roadside barbecue chicken (definitely free range) and a
variety of vegetables as yet unseen in Sainsbury’s. As well as
Creole, the island offers an international selection, from French
and Italian to Chinese cuisine (and many more).
