Located high in the hilltop neighborhood of Petite Saline, Villa Gearon (GEA) offers the charm of traditional West Indies design with dramatic views of Lorient Bay and the blue ocean beyond. A wide, stone-tile terrace with a shimmering infinity pool provides chaises for sunning as well as shaded outdoor dining, with additional seating on a second terrace a few steps down from the pool. Two separate living areas are decorated in classic tropical style, with white-cushioned rattan sofas, throw pillows of bright green and sky blue, and decorative touches like conch shells and carved parrotfish. Both of Villa Gearon's living areas offer an unobstructed, spectacular view of the ocean and other islands in the distance. The bedrooms are nearly equal in size and amenities, all with king beds (one convertible to two twins), ensuite private baths, and sea views. The lower bedroom has its own private terrace, while the first upper bedroom boasts an extra-large bathroom. Petite Saline is a convenient and yet quiet locale, near to the shopping center of L'Oasis and the groceries and fish market in Lorient, and just a five minute drive to the surf at Saline Beach or the calmer waters of Lorient Beach.
