Le Bulletin September 2015

Gem-Palm Springs

Are you as shocked as we are that summer has ended? If you are not ready to let it go, remember that it’s always summer in St. Barth! September and October on the island are sweet and sleepy, with many of the hotels and restaurants shuttered for a hiatus. But that’s just how some of our clients like it. In fact, they love it! The languorous pace, long walks on the gorgeous beaches and dining poolside at your villa are all part of the experience.

Don’t feel like cooking in? We can reserve a private chef to do the honors – and many of the restaurants do remain open. Come mid-to-late October, the island begins to rev up for the season, and November pops like a Champagne cork!  Don’t miss the month’s jam-packed calendar below.

And don’t forget, if you are looking to celebrate the Festive Season in St. Barth, book soon.

Villas of St. Barth

Villa Roche Fleurie

Roche Fleurie
The quaint fishing village of Corossol provides a unique location for this contemporary villa with its uber-modern decor. “Just outside the door,” moored boats gently bob in the cerulean waters. The open floor plan includes a sleek kitchen with an island cooktop and seating, an adjacent dining area and a comfortable salon. The crisp white palette throughout is brightened with pops of color. The two equally sized (king) bedrooms are on either end of the villa, ensuring privacy for couples and ideal for families. The en suite baths feature lovely mosaic tiles and striking stainless steel vessel sinks. The spacious pool deck can be accessed from both bedrooms as well as the living area. The pool is delightful, and the deck provides ample outdoor living space for sunning and relaxing. Book Roche Fleurie by September 30 and we’ll pay the tax.

Client Accolade

....A big thank you to you all for helping me plan and facilitate an AMAZING first trip to St Barth! Villa Sky was perfect for our group, and the service we experienced (the maid service, promptness of the taxis, reservations and chef) far exceeded our expectations! The group fell in love with the island, and we will definitely be planning our next trip with you within the next year or two. :)
