Opening the gate of the garden at Villa Marie-Lucie, and passing through the baro—as they say in Creole—is to experience architecture and vegetation, history and tradition. Crossing the garden, and entering into the Villa via the varangue, you will traverse the centuries and be thrust into the 21st, in a winter garden with the reflecting waters of a river pool lined by a high white wall and hemmed by a contemporary ipe wood deck.
In this historic district of Saint-Denis de la Réunion, a few steps away from the Jardin de l’Etat, and near the Creole houses on rue de Paris—veritable mini-palaces within the city—Villa Marie-Lucie is the perfect spot for the discerning, curious traveller, for pleasure-seekers who wish to encounter the individual as much as the culture.
Do not be afraid of surprises. Treat yourself to the pleasures of Villa Marie-Lucie and choose the luxury and comfort of a historic villa that has been completely renovated with total respect for materials and traditions combined with the comfort of pure, understated contemporary architecture.
Villa Marie-Lucie is first and foremost a guesthouse in the grand Creole tradition. You will stay in spacious rooms that are tastefully appointed, each with its own bath amenities.
But Villa Marie-Lucie is much more than a place for rest and relaxation in an idyllic setting: Villa Marie-Lucie is an authentic Creole home.
