Fodor's Review

It's all about the view—the Pitons, of course—and the appeal of staying in an intimate and affordable family-run inn. Nestled in what was once a mountaintop cocoa and coconut estate, the main six-room guesthouse was once the cocoa house, where cocoa beans were fermented and dried; an adjacent cottage had been the copra house, where the coconuts were processed. Each room has a private balcony with a to-die-for view, king beds draped with rather romantic mosquito netting,

and shutters or French doors that open to the breeze. A two-bedroom unit is ideal for families or two couples. The two-story cottage has a huge upstairs balcony, where you can gaze at the Pitons, the rain forest, or the sunset; it's perfect for honeymooners. Halfway down the mountainside, the owner's mansion has six additional guest rooms, an infinity pool, and that picture-postcard Piton view. When they're not taking a dip in one of the pools or the free shuttle to Anse Chastanet Beach, guests are encouraged to roam the 52 acres of gardens and grounds, where they're likely to come across goats, cows, birds, and a couple of donkeys—a real treat for kids. La Haut's restaurant employs local seafood, fruits and vegetables, and herbs and spices in its excellent creole cuisine and international dishes. Anyone who plays the piano is invited to tickle the ivories on the old upright.
