...lying in a bed or a hammock in the verandah being caressed by cool mountain breezes looking out to one of the Pitons, half-mile high mountains once worshipped as Amerindian Gods and now a World Heritage Site.
...eating a tasty Creole meal with fresh vegetables and herbs grown on the plantation and prepared at the house by Antonia the housekeeper or dining out at the Dasheen restaurant nearby with its breathtaking "worldview" perched between the Pitons 1400 feet above sea level.

...bathing in the black waters of a volcano, under a hot waterfall or in therapeutic mineral baths surrounded by the lush green canopy of nature teeming with fauna & fauna.
...hiking in the rainforest, climbing Gros Piton, or walking though the remnants of a volcanic crater with clouds of steam rising from the boiling cauldrons.
...snorkeling or scuba diving in the crystal clear waters of the Anse Chastantet or Jalousie marine parks, a complete, exciting underwater world, alive with a host of wonderful creatures.
