Set atop the cliffs of Pointe Milou, overlooking the ocean and with unforgettable sunset views of surrounding islands, you’ll find Bon Temps: a 6-bedroom villa built in the Palladian style and fit for a Roman emperor. You’ll enjoy one of the most luxurious experiences on all of St. Barts at this mesmerizing home, surrounded on all sides by lush, tropical gardens.
Take in the visual and architectural splendor as you lounge on one of the numerous terraces or cool off in the 50ft infinity pool that appears to melt right into the ocean. In the evening, watch the sun dip below the horizon from one of the curved stone banquettes that give you the illusion of floating above the sea.
Open-air living continues into the villa. Stroll across custom mosaic flooring towards a semi-outdoor living room to relax in tropical rattan chairs or sink deep into a plush sofa. Sip a pre-dinner cocktail in a secluded outdoor lounge decorated with a classic stone fountain feature, then head in to prepare a meal in the open-sided kitchen, complete with marble surfaces and the finest tableware from around the world. You’ll also be treated to more modern amenities such as a private fitness room and large flatscreen TV/DVD player in the kitchen/bar.
Bon Temps comfortably sleeps 12 and each of the 6 bedrooms has a view of the ocean, high ceilings and an en-suite bathroom. 4 of the bedrooms, including the master bedroom, have private terraces. The master bedroom also includes a King size bed and home theatre system. 3 of the other bedrooms have King size beds and 2 others have Twin beds.
While you may never want to leave the property, if you do you’ll find lots to do without going far. Lorient Beach, one of the island’s best-kept secrets and popular families and surfers alike, is only a five minute drive away. It’s a ten minute drive to St. Jean where you can enjoy a little retail therapy or a decadent French fine-dining experience.
Additional amenities include: DVD movie library, cd player(cd players), VCR(VCRs), telephone(telephones), barbecue(barbecues), espresso machine, coffee maker(coffee makers), beach loungers.TripAdvisor property ID 2006565...Read more
Left on 10/14/2011 for a stay in February 2011 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Oct 14, 2011Stayed Feb 2011
Upon arriving, we were all taken back at the sense of grandeur and simplicity of this villa. The view was something to behold. The infinity pool was perfect. Enjoying the sunsets, dining in the outdoor dining area and lounging by the pool were some of our favourite things to do. It was a peaceful and private environment. The gym came in handy and was appreciated by all - too much eating and drinking fabulous wines and champagne! We plan to return again next year!
