Farewell to Saint Lucia

Stairs, Steps & Balconies at the Apartment Espoir This, I think, will be our last “post” about Saint Lucia. All of the dozen or so apartments (apart from the pool-side cottage) are housed in a single building located on a very steep hillside. Every apartment has its own entrance, which requires a bewildering variety of…

Apartment Espoir

Between Castries City and Rodney Bay, Saint Lucia We spent our last four nights on Saint Lucia in a studio at Apartment Espoir. We liked it so much that we wrote a Tripadvisor review, which I will copy here below the photos. We really enjoyed our stay at Apartment Espoir. The studio was small but…
