I did a lot of research trying to find the right lodging in St. Lucia... and I'm so glad we found Fond Doux. Our cottage was absolutely beautiful, high on a hilltop. We especially loved the outdoor shower and fresh air and soothing sounds of nature that came through the French doors each night. The staff were so friendly and...
