Belle Etoile - Villa with pool, unobstructed sea views & laid-back atmosphere
Description from the manager
Offering an expansive interior, stunning terrace and panoramic sea views, this exquisite villa in Terres Basses is one of our favorite St. Martin villas. Perfectly blending Caribbean hospitality and European sophistication, the island of St. Martin is an ideal choice for a memorable tropical getaway.
Backing onto the cliffs of Terres Basses, this home enjoys sweeping ocean views from its terrace and manicured grounds. Equally impressive is the lagoon-like pool thats chlorine free and includes a shallow end for children. During the day, relax with a cold drink on one of the decks many loungers while in the evening go for a soak under the stars in the hot tub located in the center of the pool and accessible via a wooden walkway. Serve meals alfresco under the covered dining area, then work off the calories in the fully equipped gym that includes cardio and weight machines.
Inside, the spacious interior features soaring ceilings, modern decor and tiled flooring throughout. The open-concept main living area opens up to the terrace through glass doors and boasts dramatic lighting, plush, neutral-toned furnishings and a flatscreen TV. The airy kitchen is fully equipped and includes a large center islanda chef and housekeeping service is also included in the rental.
Comfortably sleeping up to 10 guests, each of the villas four bedrooms have been individually decorated and offer king size beds, en-suite bathrooms and ocean views. A private guest house is just steps away from the main living area and includes a queen size bed with a private en-suite and TV.
Youll be just one minute away from the beach during your stay! Whether you choose to stretch out on the white platinum sand or go snorkeling, its sure to be an unforgettable experience. A 10-minute drive takes you into the capital city, Marigot, where youll find gingerbread houses and sidewalk bistros as well as boutique shopping and excellent dining.

The villa was the BEST yet!!!! The attention given to us by the chefs, and the house ladies was great, the food prepared by the chefs was wonderul, but most of all, the view was unsurpassable, and the accomodations couldn\'t have been better. We totally relaxed for one week!!! aMy only suggestion is that they work on the hot tub to make it much warmer, and also the pool. We weren\'t supposed to use the hot tub before 4:oo which was a little disappointing. Also, one of the rooms had a shower that was not hot. Other than those very minor problems, I would reccomend it to anyone, and all of us would go back again.
