St. Bart’s, truly a Dream Destination

The island of St. Bart’s is known for its amazing views and laidback way of life where the truly rich and elite go to escape their busy schedules. A perfect place for travel and vacation, this is the place where the rich and famous spend their moolah. According to Luxury Retreats, “Buying St. Bart's real estate is like joining a members-only club, with the benefits making it difficult to leave: great views, fantastic gourmet cuisine, authentic French-Caribbean culture and gorgeous beaches among them.”

While looking at the different villas that are all magnificently built and designed, I can not help but gasp every now and then. One will be awed at the interiors of each villa and the scenic views from these abodes. I have chosen to highlight this one particular four-bedroom villa because of its sensational features, its lush gardens, stunning pool and its spectacular harbor view. And of course, it is aptly called Au Soleil.

“Perched on the crown of the mountain in Lurin is this amazing 4 bedroom luxury villa. Completely renovated in 2002/2003 to the absolute highest standards. The property boasts a dramatic sunset view which can be viewed from multiple terraces. There is a large two level infinity edge pool with terrace facing the more than 180 degree view over St. Jean Baie. Behind the house is a lush tropical garden with an ajoupa surrounded by water with a running river to a fountain in front. This ajoupa was designed to give the vantage point of seeing the river turning into the pool turning into the ocean... one solid view of water! Truly one of the finest homes in St. Barth offering 100% privacy in its location”. From Luxury Retreats

A little something about St. Bart’s according to World Atlas,

It is widely believed that St. Bart's was discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1493, and he named it in honor of his brother Bartolomeo. In the mid-1600s, the French arrived, took control from the indigenous indians, and built small settlements. In 1784 it was sold (traded) to Sweden, and even though the French bought it back in 1878, some Swedish influences remain, including the name of the its capital, Gustavia. The island is part of the French overseas department of Guadeloupe, and the French influence and style are everywhere. It is considered by many to be the Caribbean's most beautiful island, with dozens of white sand beaches, crystal clear waters and a green, hilly landscape punctuated by numerous lagoons. St. Barts is definitely upscale, and a favorite of the rich and famous. The island is chic and simply stunning. Gustavia, a duty-free port, is a picturesque place of red-roofed buildings, boutiques, a yacht-filled harbor, and a very relaxed lifestyle.
