Le Bulletin March 2017

Villa Chocolat

March means spring break, and we love to see families with kids in tow enjoying the beaches, taking paddleboard lessons, and being introduced to French food. Teens lunch on crêpes and swap out hamburgers for mahi-mahi burgers with house-made frites. And, of course, everyone seems to love the thin-crust pizza dished up at The Hideaway in St. Jean and Les Bananiers in Colombier. Remember, our Value Season pricing begins on April 16 (through December 14). That means a savings, on average, of 30% on villas and hotels.

What to do with those extra euros? Shop the new boutiques on rue de la République across from the ferry dock, or enjoy a divine dinner at one of the island’s top restaurants – with a special bottle of wine. Reservations – and the best tables ‒ are easier to get in Value Season. Our concierge is always at the ready to assist. We’ve had our eye on the weather reports this month, with cold temperatures and snowstorms forecast for much of the country – brrrrr. So, come and enjoy our balmy, sunny days.

Villa Chocolat

Villa Chocolat – This luxurious 4 bedroom villa offers a stunning view of the ocean and neighboring islands. The vista can be enjoyed from the spacious terrace and the poolside portico. Spectacular sunrises will wow early-rising guests. Built on two levels, the open floor plan includes smartly and comfortably furnished living and dining areas and a sleek kitchen with a breakfast bar. It is air-conditioned throughout. Three en suite bedrooms, all with ocean views, are on the main level. They all have king beds and dressing areas. Each has a TV equipped with French and U.S. satellite service, and Apple TV. The fourth bedroom is in a lower-level studio apartment with a living room, fully equipped kitchenette, and private terrace. Guests love walking around Toiny’s beautiful coastline.

Villa Enzuma

Villa Enzuma – Perched high above Toiny, Villa Enzuma is a true haven offering delicious privacy, serene comfort, and a sweeping view of the Caribbean Sea. Its contemporary décor is enhanced with colorful modern artwork by local artist Kate Kova. An open living area opens to a spacious terrace with an infinity pool. The terrace’s retractable roof provides the option of sun or shade for relaxing and alfresco dining. The master suite (queen bed) is on one side of the living area, with access via glass sliders to the pool terrace. Its private rear patio is an ideal spot for an in-villa massage. Two more bedrooms, both with queen beds, are on the opposite side of the living room and would be suitable for parents with children. The larger of the two has a dressing room, a double vanity, and a shower. Guests in this room would use the nearby guest WC. The smaller bedroom does not have its own bathroom facilities and would use the shower in the larger bedroom and the guest WC.

Client Accolade

We loved Le Barthélemy Hotel & Spa. it was beautiful, and the staff and food were fabulous! We liked the protected cove location, which was great for paddle boarding, kayaking, etc. Having everything brand-new was tremendous. Overall an excellent relaxing vacation; hope to get back there soon!
