Villa Au Soleil

Rte. de Lurin
Baie de St. Jean , St. Bart's http://www.villaausoleil.com/
(508) 528-7727

Agency: St. Barth Properties
Affiliated with Sotheby's, this boutique agency's 150 properties are located solely on St. Bart's and, unlike most of its competitors, it has an on-island office. Founder Peg Walsh publishes "helpful hints" manuals, hosts welcoming cocktail parties, and arranges for in-villa spa treatments, gym equipment, or baby furniture.

Description
The very model of a hedonistic St. Bart's retreat, this four-bedroom villa overlooking St. Jean Baie is over-the-top luxurious. The property is an Eden of tropical gardens with a fountain, a bi-level infinity pool, and a grand pavilion (known locally as an ajoupa) for gazing over all of it. Inside, the gleaming gourmet kitchen comes with an in-house chef; the common areas have vaulted ceilings and terracotta floors, and the bedrooms all have carved wood queen- or king-size beds. More sybaritic pleasures—namely, the beach and swanky shops—are just a five-minute drive away.
