St Barts villa for rent "La Maison" has been designed for tropical living. It features a natural ventilation system, large windows and is located on a hillside caressed by the trade winds, yet out of range of storms, and above the heat of the coast. The villa is nestled among the flowering hills of St Jean Bay, only 500 yards from the beach. It has no close neighbors, and you will find restaurants and shops within a walking distance. The seascapes offered by the breathtaking 180-Degree ocean view vary constantly throughout the day. The sunset provides a colorful spectacle each evening at cocktail hour, known locally as l'heure du planteur. You will find a L-shaped pool in front of the villa, close to the living room. This is a perfect place to relax while enjoying a stunning view on St Jean Bay. La Maison is structured in the spirit of the sumptuous life of the planters' houses, and has been designed with antique colonial furnishings.
