Soufriere, Saint Mark Parish, Dominica
Come and enjoy this truly unique and very private hide-away retreat in the Dominican Jungle. <BR>Situated in a large valley, La Bou is the perfect place to re-connect with Mother Nature. <BR>Even though this property is located just minutes from the fishing village of Soufriere, it gives you the feeling of being totally alone in the jungle.<BR><BR>This gorgeous compound is comprised of three separate buildings that have and been lovingly hand-built on 0.85 acres by a Swiss artist. He, together with his wife, envisioned and built every inch of this unique structure. The entire structure is extremely sound and truly one-of-a-kind.

La Bou is the best place to locate yourself on Dominica with its fascinating architecture and magnificent surroundings. Arent & Mabel is the best hosts you'll find and will give you a warm welcome on this adventurous, beautiful nature island! This place is why you want to travel. Don't miss the sunset at Bubble Beach Spa and the rum punches.
