This is a self-contained cottage with a large room, two beds that can be brought together to make a double bed, a bathroom, a kitchen and a balcony with a beautiful view.
Laborie is a peaceful and authentic Caribbean village, if you are looking for discos and shopping mall you will be disappointed, but if you feel like bathing at and walking along a deserted beach, enjoying village life (and a cold beer with a fish meal at one of the local restaurants) or going for a hike in the hills, then you will enjoy a visit to Laborie.
Fantastic chalet in an amazing and very peaceful location, I can't recommend this enough. The chalet is comfortable and has everything you need, and a perfect balcony with a hammock.
The cottage at Chalet La Mar was rustic and lovely - exactly what we were looking for. The view is incredible and we enjoyed reading in the hammock. There were a few bugs but nothing bothersome, and the mosquito netting around the bed did the trick. Wireless internet was an unexpected bonus.
As for the village of Laborie, we found the people to be friendly enough—some were more open and welcoming than others. We enjoyed a lot of excellent food and good beer, and especially enjoyed the fresh fish at Mama Rose's (off the main square). We were glad we didn't rent a car, as the village was accessible on foot and a car would have been more cost and hassle than it was worth.
Yves provided us with everything we needed for a comfortable stay and helped us to make travel and touring arrangements. He was very responsive and an excellent host.
Nous avons passé 10 jours de rêve dans ce site magnifique.
Yves est un hôte accueillant et discret, toujours disponible pour les meilleurs conseils et d'une très grande gentillesse.
Un endroit idéal pour les amoureux de la nature et du calme.Un petit nid d'amour...Laborie est un petit village de pêcheurs traditionnel où les contacts s'établissent facilement. Hautement recommandé pour les amoureux de la nature et du calme.
We loved staying at Yves' Chalet. It was truly relaxing, and felt in no rush to venture out exploring. Comfortable, charming, and safe place. Spacious and lots of seating both inside and outside. Kitchen had all the necessities to feel like home. Unbeatable views and a hot shower.
Was a little difficult to find, but we were tired and it was dark when we were trying to find our way.
Already miss our time there!
Chalet La Mar is a dream come true if you like nice views, ocean breezes, and relaxing in a hammock (and who doesn't?). Yves is a wonderful host, very hospitable and helpful, and Laborie is a friendly and lively little town. We had a great time. Merci beaucoup, Yves!
We really had a great experience at Yves's place! We ended up in the house (and not the Chalet that you can also rent). The House was well decorated, and the room typically creole and comfy! Whats more, the view from the terrace is gorgeous! We wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy it !
Yves a été incroyablement accueillant, m'aidant à organiser mon trajet avant même mon arrivée, me proposant plusieurs fois de m'emmener à la ville dans sa voiture, et m'aidant constamment dans mes démarches sur place, et ce toujours avec une grande gentillesse.
J'ai passé un séjour de 12 jours idylliques dans ce chalet rustique mais confortable, calme, propre et suffisamment équipé. J'ai passé des heures à me ressourcer, sur le balcon, face à la mer, de jour comme de nuit avec les bruits de la nuit tropicale.
Mais le chalet est aussi bien placé pour explorer le sud de l'île, y compris Souffrières et les Pitons, ou faire du windsurf/kitesurf sur le meilleur spot de l'île juste à côté de Vieux Fort.
Enfin, le village de Laborie lui-même est très joli, il n'y a aucun touriste, et les locaux sont charmants. C'est calme, mais il y a quand même quelques bars, restau, un marché...
Je recommande vivement ce logement. J'y reviendrai certainement moi-même.

My name is Yves Renard, but you don't really need to know too much about me, more about the place. Laborie is a very quiet and attractive fishing village located in the south of Saint Lucia. It's not the right place if you are looking for casinos and night clubs, but perfect if you want to discover or rediscover Caribbean culture, eat fresh fish in a small village restaurant, enjoy a deserted beach or take a walk in the hills.
