Caribbean Travel and Life’ Magazine’s
August/September 2011 Issue Features a Big Spread: Villa Vacations Made Simple
Caribbean Travel and Life Magazine’s August/September issue features an extensive article on villa vacations and answers many questions people may have if they have never rented a villa before.
I am pleased as Ti Punch that one of our villas (Villa Palm Beach on Lorient Bay) is pictured on the cover!
Turn to page 54 to see a different angle and then page 56 to see the pool at Villa K. Page 57 shows the manager of Villa Gem-Palm Springs serving continental breakfast. It is included with the villa rental because Gem-Palm Springs is one of the villas in our Grand Cru Collection. I am proud to say that on page 58, in addition to the picture of the awesome rain shower at Villa Palm Beach, there is a “From the Expert” sidebar that features quotes from, guess who? Me! There are other quotes from several of my colleagues who rent villas on their own special island. (Yes, I admit I am very prejudiced towards St. Barth. Who wouldn’t be?)
The article demonstrates just how many different services villa guests can choose to have in the privacy of their own home. Turn to page 59…Yoga and/or Pilates anyone? Perhaps a massage? (Page 65) Try it poolside at Villa Gem-Palm Springs. See one of the villa’s fabulous 4 bedrooms on page 60 and drool at the boulangerie’s baguettes and pastries on page 61. Another one of our Grand Cru villas, Mer Soleil scored a double page (62-63) and you can see why.
Then we have a very handsome young man sitting at the bar at Villa Gem-Palm Springs on page 64. He is Jean-Claude Dufour and an outstanding chef whom we often hire for our guests who choose to dine in. He created a menu for our staff’s dinner party at Gem Palm Springs (What a view!). I hope that you can get a copy at your local newsstand or grocery store and that you do try a villa vacation next time.
