The Saint Joseph, Dominica region
Nestled in the hills, Louis Villa combines old world charm with all the modern comforts. Hidden by its own Caribbean garden and perched high above the coastal line, you can escape into your own secret paradise. Let the waves wash away yesterday and enjoy the warmth of Caribbean life. Spend your days in the sunshine relishing all that Dominica has to offer snorkelling, whale watching and kayaking. Spend your nights listening to the sound of the island, the rhythm of the surf breaking, harmony of the birds and the swaying of the trees. Lets us share our home away from home with you – it's just a breath away.
Places of interest in Dominica are the Northern Forest Reserve which opened in 1977 which has the largest refuge for the indigenous species of parrot, the Sisserou and the Jacquot. The Central Forest Reserves, and, the Morne Trois Pitons National Park.
Dominica Carib Indian & Their Territory,
The Reserve has about 3000 inhabitants, who are descended from the island's first settlers, and the majority live in simple homes and generally work the land and the sea. Unlike other Dominicans, who are of African descent, Caribs have South American blood in them, and have a different appearance to the rest of the population, with jet black straight hair, and amazingly beautiful eyes. No Carib owns any of the land, rather, the whole territory belongs to them all, and they organise themselves through their tribal council. The ancient Carib language is slowly dying out, and is only spoken by very few of the older generation.
A visit to the area is an interesting cultural experience; you will see some of the most incredible crafts in the world, including ornate wood carvings and carefully woven wicker baskets; an ideal place to find some gifts for your friends, ensuring the actual craftsman benefits from the sale, rather than middle men not from the reserve.
.A five minutes drive from Salisbury beach, fish maybe bought from local fishermen and scuba diving can be arranged with the East Carib Dive Club.
