Le Bulletin January 2018


Villa Rocamadour

We hope your holidays were merry and bright! As we have for decades now, we gathered with family to celebrate and ring in the New Year on our beloved St. Barth. This year was even more special, as the whole island had something extra to celebrate – an amazing recovery from Hurricane Irma. The esprit de corps remains strong and is as beautiful to see as the tropical flowers that are blooming again. One of the harbingers of the Festive Season has always been the arrival of Roman Abramovich’s 538-foot yacht. So we were pleased to see the Eclipse pull into the harbor! And the pièce de résistance? Jimmy Buffet treated everyone to a free — and fabulous — concert on the quai. What fun!

We loved dining again at our favorite restaurants and savored our Christmas dinner at Le Tamarin. We were thrilled to see Orega up and running, looking fabulous and boasting a new sushi bar. Shellona reopened with great fanfare on popular Shell Beach. Some of our family members secured a coveted lunch reservation and raved about the Greek-influenced cuisine. And most of all, I loved seeing everyone again enjoying our gorgeous beaches.

No photos could capture the serene beauty that the view of Villa Azur affords. . . It provided the foundation for the most relaxing vacation that Tony and I have experienced. Your associates in St. Barth could not have been more professional or helpful. It was very reassuring to know that they were only a phone call away. Again, many thanks. I’m confident that you will be hearing from us in the future.
