Warning: you’re about to pack your bags when your read further! Villa Palmier on the Caribbean island of St. Barths is a dream destination. White sand beneath your toes, sea breezes flowing through the villa, palm tress swaying in the wind, fresh fish caught that morning, warm croissants from the local boulangerie… these are just a few delights of the island life. Villa Palmier is the perfect place to stay: this two bedroom, two bathroom villa can sleep up to four people, and it can either be rented as a one or two bedroom. The villa features indoor-outdoor living, a large pool, a private outdoor shower with hot & cold water, beautiful ocean views, ipe decks and the sound of the waves from every room. It has been decorated in a modern organic style with a neutral color pallet to invoke a sense of serenity. Personal touches and attention to detail are found throughout the house with the softest linens, beautiful art, and found objects. The spacious open air kitchen features a lacanche range, perfect for cooking fresh fish from the local fish market. Owners Kate and Matt, an American couple from Aspen, Colorado fell in love with St. Barts on their first trip to the island. “With a passion for both the ocean and French culture, St. Barts stole our hearts. We believe in a curated home, where every part of the house has a story, a purpose and aesthetic appeal. We are passionate about timeless, simple, elegant design, and spaces that cultivate a sense of well being.”
More about the island: located in the Caribbean Sea and only 25 sq km large, St. Barts is endlessly charming. Dotted with rustic yet elegant red-roofed abodes, winding narrow roads and white crescent beaches, you won’t find a single traffic light or high-rise building on the island. What you will find is a laid back French culture, with a particular attention to design and detail, that attracts an international crowd. With 22 stunning beaches to choose from, world class dining and shopping, and a “je ne sais quoi” that will leave you wanting to return to the island again and again, St. Barts leaves little to be desired.
