Bonjour from sunny St. Barth!
I arrived last week and have been doing last minute villa inspections before they fill up for the holidays. There are so many beautiful properties. I am sure you will love staying in them. Villa Cosmos, a villa in Mont Jean that we sold three years ago, has just completed its renovation – it was worth the wait!
Dream about: Working on your tan then jumping into the large heated swimming pool to cool off.
It’s in the details: Four en suite bedrooms are located in separate areas; Outdoor living spaces are everywhere.
SBP Loves: The minimalistic contemporary décor and the wonderful views across Marigot Bay
The decorations line the streets of Gustavia, the yachts were all lined up on the dock but a houle came down from the US creating large swells form the northwest so the yachts are temporarily moored just outside the harbor. There is a Christmas Village on the quai where people can purchase some last minute gifts.
The boutiques remain open and there is plenty of activity—window shoppers and buyers alike. This evening Steve and I will attend the 6:30 pm Christmas Eve service at the Anglican Church. It is my annual chance to sing Christmas carols and belt out those songs (I am a soprano and love to sing). Continuing the tradition we will head to the Wall House for dinner. People are raving about their new menu and the new chef who created it.
Wishing you and yours a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.
