                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1989

                          About the owner: Avalon is a small estate situated on one acre in the typical village of Colombier. It was love at first sight when it was purchased in 1989. St. Barths has been our home since then. We love our island lifestyle and although we have professional lives based here on the island, we travel frequently. Avalon has been featured in Danielle Roches new coffee table book, Islands. There are 8 pages that cover the colorful decor, and gardens of our villa as well as the vistas. We hope that the guests that have a chance to stay with us can take time to unwind and enjoy the unparalleled calm and beauty of our island estate.

                          Why the Owner Chose Colombier:
                          Having travelled the world and lived in more than five countries, we felt the diverse lifestyle this area offers is truly exceptional.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                          The sound of the birds singing or watching the waves crashing on the shores of the islands in front of our property. Observing the turtles slowly climb up the driveway hoping to have a snack, or the hummingbirds that hover in the flowers in front of the living room gallery, the iguanas that come and observe us from the rocks. The island breezes.. Night-time treefrogs singing. Roosters that crow in the morning, everything that brings us far from the hectic city life!
