About The Island
St. Barthelemy is a mountainous island of about 9 square miles in the French West Indies. Known as St. Barths to the locals, it offers all of the ingredients necessary for a perfect vacation, safe, peaceful yet stylish and refined.
The physical appearance of the island is breathtaking, comprised of a number of volcanic peaks which guarantee fabulous views and a wide variety of beautiful beaches (sand, shell and stone) which are almost all undeveloped. The climate is perfect.
The people are sophisticated yet friendly and down-to-earth. The food is superior to the food available in the best restaurants in the United States & Europe, and the wine selection is broad. The shopping is sophisticated, varied, and tax free.
St. Barths is an intimate and romantic place; there are no casinos, resorts or golf courses to distract. It is a place to relax and repair the jagged edges of complicated and busy lives.
