A small group of friends and family had an outstanding experience during our two week stay at Villa Loéan. The home is located in the hills above the smaller village of Ste.-Rose, less crowded and more authentic than most tourist areas. The view of the sea and plants from the property was a joy each day. The kitchen is large and modern and my friends enjoyed cooking meals after shopping at local markets. The outdoor dining area was refreshing. But a more formal table in the salon was great for evening meals and relaxation. The bedrooms were comfortable although the fourth sleeping space is a loft up a stairway from the third bedroom. Three separate showers and lots of hot water were appreciated. The private pool is large and quite deep and is kept in top condition. The complete ambiance of the villa made it difficult to leave it to see the great sights and beaches of the island. It felt like "home" from the start. We will have to return! The owner was very responsive to all of our questions and arranged for friendly and helpful neighbors to be available during our stay.
