“La Pagerie” is a beachfront luxury villa located on the secluded and unspoiled island of Carriacou, the most southerly of the enchanted Grenadine archipelago, a true sailing paradise.
 
Where is Carriacou?

Carriacou is situated in the Eastern Caribbean, 12° north of the equator (therefore outside of the hurricane belt). The island is approximately 20 miles from Grenada and part of the tri-island state of Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique.
 

The name of the island means "reef" in Indian: Carriacou is actually surrounded by coral reef, making it a great location for diving adventures (numerous wrecks to explore) or simply to snorkel a few feet away from the white sand beaches, circled by multitudes of tropical fish. And lobsters are never far!
 

La Pagerie Estate is located within High North Nature Park (homing wild parrots) on the north-western side of Carriacou, featuring the nicest (and most secluded) beach on the island : Pristine Anse La Roche, a few minutes by boat and 20 minutes walk from la Pagerie, a protected home for sea turtles.

Another gorgeous sand beach, well named Paradise Beach, is 15 minutes by car south of la Pagerie, also on the Caribbean sea. Opposite to Paradise Beach is tiny and beautiful Sandy island, featuring coconut trees that provide shade to an all times generous tropical sun.

The village of Hilsborough includes groceries, a fish market (proposing fresh lobsters during the season), a gourmet shop and service (Patty's Deli on Main Street), and local art shops.
