Soufriere is located nearby and offers a sleepy fishing villas complete with drive in volcano, waterfalls, exceptional diving and snorkeling at Anse Chastanet Beach and the exotic tropical gardens and mineral baths at Diamond Estate.
Are En Ciel was imaginatively designed to the highest standards by architect Lane Pettigrew who also created the interior design which features hand made furniture from Honduras and select pieces from Tommy Bahamas furniture line. The villa incorporates many aspects of traditional Caribbean style with its numerous and expansive verandahs, jalousie shutters and wooden railings. It is constructed of a number of small pavilions that are connected to each other by verandahs. The exterior of the villa has been partially finished with a facing of hand chipped stones to resemble the exterior of the forts of by gone days which were constructed on the island many hundreds of years ago.
It is set on an extensive landscaped garden that has a wide variety of tropical flowers and trees.
The living/dining room is located in the center of the villa and exquisitely furnished and set on gleaming, polished wood floors. It is nicely equipped with TV, DVD and stereo. The formal dining table can accommodate 10 guests and opens directly onto a patio which leads to a spectacular dining gazebo where guests can dine with the backdrop of the Caribbean Sea and dramatic Pitons.
The balance of the entertainment areas are located on the lower level of the villa. Outdoor living in true Caribbean style may be enjoyed on the expansive covered patio complete with casual dining area for alfresco dining and bar with fridge. This area leads out to the spacious pool deck and a series of smaller pool patios. A comfortable air-conditioned family room offers two large sofas, one of which may be converted into a double bed.
