Hewanorra International Airport in Vieux Fort. The code for it is “UVF”.

For a relaxing vacation, or if your group is more than four people, or you want more space than a small vehicle has, we recommend you hire our driver. His vehicles are comfortable and spacious, and he also acts as a tour guide and provides you a complimentary itinerary consultation the first morning of your stay. Most of our guests hire him and pay for it through our website with a credit card (Pay Online) since he does not have a credit card reader of his own.
Many roads in St Lucia, including the roads to the villa, are narrow and rough with steep hills. Most parking spots in Soufriere are small and on the streets. So if you prefer the adventure of driving during your stay, we recommend a small 4WD SUV, such as a Jimny Sport from Drive-A-Matic. It’s just barely large enough for four average-sized adults, but not much luggage or gear if you go to the beach.
You call call us for help deciding, or consult the guide we’ve put together.
The driving is on the left-hand (“British”) side of the road.
Travel time is about 50-60 minutes.
The nearest beaches, Anse Chastanet and Hummingbird, are a 5-10 minute drive from the villa.
Let us know that you want to hire him and we will let him know. Letting us know a week or two ahead of time is fine. You don’t need a set schedule for the week – he provides a complimentary itinerary consultation on your first morning if you are using his services and not renting a vehicle.
Our driver accepts only cash, US or EC dollars. His prices are all quoted in US dollars. Alternatively, you may establish a credit line with us and we will pay him for you.
No, but we can arrange for you to be picked up at the airport. The cost is $80 US for four people, and $100 US for five or six people. Our driver’s vehicle is large enough for your group and your luggage.
In order to drive in St Lucia, you will either need an international license or a St Lucian driving permit. If you don’t have or want to get an international license, the car rental agency will issue you a St Lucian permit at the same time you rent the vehicle (about $20 US).
