Why Francois chose Grand Cul-de-Sac
As far as I can remember I dreamed of a deserted island. In 1987, I purchased a piece of land on St Bart without even visiting it. The first time I landed there, I fell in love at first sight with this beautiful and very unique island so I decided to build this villa. A few years later my family and I moved to St Bart for 6 wonderful years. My kids were young and they now have great and marvelous memories of their childhood there. 25 years later I still love the place. In fact, St bart is the only place I really feel home. According to family's members and friends this island is this kind of rare place in the world where you get a special feeling of peace and safety. Something I never get tired of is having breakfast on the terrace facing this incredible view. I hope you will also discover all the wonders of this amazing island. Francois
What makes this Villa unique
Villa Bougainvilliers is very private, nestled at the top of its garden, surrounded by trees and flowers. From the door entrance and parking lot a private drive way will lead you down to a small road that you just need to cross in order to enjoy the peaceful Marigot Bay Beach. The villa is very airy and lightful. You can see the ocean from every where you are: the kitchen, the living room and the 2 bedrooms. It is well furnished and maintained. We make improvements every year because this is a place we love. I would say that the main qualities of villa Bougainvilliers are privacy, peace, view (you don't see any other house from it), building quality, comfort and of course its private pool.

Serine Setting, Bliss, Privacy, and Beauty
My family had an amazing holiday at Villa Bougainvilliers. We have been going to St Barths annually for our son's school vacation week and will be sure to book Villa Bougainvilliers in time for a truly rejuvenating week. The villa is just as described, it is positioned so you never view any neighbors and you have complete privacy, walk down the driveway and you are at a small bay for swimming and snorkeling, a 2 minute drive around the corner where you can rent SUP, glass bottomed kayaks, and beach cabanas at Guanahani, La Sereno, or other nearby resorts and restaurants for minimal fees. This villa has a great layout, vaulted ceilings, a beautiful patio, clean pool with a breathtaking views, plenty of seating, lounge chairs, towels, cooking utensils, strong WiFi, a grill (definitely hit the fish stand in Lorient Tues-Sat for lobster and an amazing selection of fish), tents and chairs (for the private Saline beach with no cabanas), if this list doesn't have what you need, the house manager, house keeper, pool cleaner, or gardener will be happy to oblige. An amazing property management team is responsive, but allows for your solitude. I highly recommend this property!!
We recently returned from a week at this wonderful place and agreed that it was one of the most relaxing vacations yet. It truly is a place to sit back, relax and enjoy the simple life. The house is situated in a perfect location - a 5 min. drive to a wonderful bakery and market, close to everything but very peaceful and quiet. It is true that due to the size of the island, you are close to everything but unlike some other islands driving around here is pleasant with lovely views and gardens. We had our kids aged 9-12 with us and the entire island was safe, clean and breathtakingly beautiful. At night when you sit outside on the terrace you can hear the waves and watch the stars. The house has a lovely view of the sea. I agree with the previous review that the beach at the end on the driveway is warm, calm and good for snorkeling (We saw beautiful fish and turtles) but not really a beach to lay on. Also, the driveway (as most of the driveways seem to be) is quite steep - we needed it to work off the fabulous breads, pastries etc. Our favorite beach was Saline, where the kids never tired of the waves. There are beach chairs and a cooler that you can use which is great.
The house is charming and has everything you need. A minor inconvenience was the lack of a washing machine for towels as we found that between the beach, pool and showers we were using a lot. A very pleasant lady came to clean in the mornings and replaced the towels a few times. The air conditioning and WIFI worked very well and it was very comfortable. The terrace and pool area were huge hits with the kids and very private. The pool was very clean and well cared for. I do think that the house may look slightly older than the photos suggest but we loved it. There are many newly built properties but this house is so comfortable and welcoming that we doubt we would have liked any one better. Matthew was wonderful to us and having met us at the Ferry, took us to the Airport to wait almost 2 hours for delayed bags that we were assured by Jet Blue would turn up at some point. He was never intrusive but we had his cell number and knew where to find him if we needed anything, which we didn't. Francois, the owner was extremely easy to deal with, helpful and willing to quickly answer any questions we had before the trip.
The island of St. Barth was so much more than we expected with helpful, friendly people, beautiful breezes and incredible beaches. We hope to return one day soon.
3rd visit to island, 2nd stay in this villa
We stayed here our first visit to St Bart's in 2009 and fell in love with this charming villa and its wonderful view of Marigot, with the sounds of waves from the Carribean Sea. We stayed in a more modern/chic villa in Flammands the second visit - no comparison to the view and the sounds! Four adults shared this villa with plenty of privacy. The property is very unique as it has its own driveway and gardens, it is not crammed on top of another villa along a hillside like so many other villas. Also, the vistas that are seen each and every time driving home to this lovely place are absolutely breathtaking, we missed that in the other section of town. The long driveway is a very steep grade, excellent for a safe morning cardio/glute workout (the roads are very narrow with fast moving cars). And the family of turtles will come out to visit you as well, looking for snacks, we hand fed them apple slices. The pool gets the best mid morning sun only, but we spent most of our days at the beaches. Marigot beach (at the bottom of the driveway) is a place for snorkeling, not a beach for laying in the sand, not enough space for a blanket, you get right in and see lots of beautiful fish, my husband even saw a lobster. The villa location is not more than 20 minutes from the farthest point on the island, once you conquer the driving. Matthew, the property manager is very helpful and lives nearby for any needs. Francois, the owner is very courteous & easy to communicate with via email. The villa wifi was flawless as well for that necessary communication back home. I must recommend bug repellant for the night time on the patio, this is no fault of the owner, the property has lush gardens for the island, each time we stayed had many bites (never saw the sneaky bastards) after spending time outside, I think some were acquired at the open air dining establishments as well. The cost of staying at this villa is the absolute best price on the island- I hate to reveal this, it feels like a well kept secret!
Wonderful time in St. Barts
We had a really nice time at Villa Bougainvilliers. We are a family of four, with two small kids.
Location is great. Walking down the driveway is a small beach with snorkeling. Very easy and quick to get to anywhere in the island
Turtles still come in the afternoon, and lizards, and hummingbirds =)) The house was cleaned every day; the dishes emptied from the dishwasher and any dishes that were left dirty - washed and put away. We noticed the pool was cleaned at least once while we were there. Francois, the owner, was very helpful and extremely prompt in answering any questions that we've had before we left.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely consider staying there again.
A wonderful charming villa, best deal in St. Barth's!
We came for 10 days, had a fantastic time here. We have been to St. Barth's many times, this place is really well priced for what you get. The villa is just as listed, charming, well equipped, with a nice view of Marigot Bay. Owner Francois and his caretaker Mathieu were extremely helpful. Marigot Beach is within walking distance but we went to the other beaches every day... Saline, Gouveneur, Flamands, St Jean.... and found a great quiet little beach in Petit Cul de Sac (we had my 85 year old mother with us so the surf at the bigger beaches was a bit much for her getting in and out, the swimming at Petit Cul de Sac was a touch weedy but very calm). We were lucky to meet a local fisherman, Patrick, at the beach at the end of our driveway ( MArigot), he was cleaning his catch in front of his house and he sold us fresh Mahi Mahi, and also was able to get us fresh lobster from his friend, both were amazing!
For dining out, we were extremely disappointed with Maya's.... really overpriced, the food was boring and cold. The pizza place on the harbour in Gustavia ( look for the coloured lights) was great, thin crust pizza, great service. Also enjoyed Eddie's in Gustavia. Le Toiny is amazing if you want a fancier experience, the ambience and food are superlative.... they also have a great Sunday brunch, you need reservations.
We met the turtle in the garden once, he's a bit shy but he does exist!
I highly recommend Villa Bougainvillier to anyone, even with small kids. We didn't have kids but this place would be suitable. Thanks to Francois!
Great locations in St Barths!
Villa Bougainvilliers has a lovely view perched on a hilltop in St. Barths. The location is perfect for exploring any other part of the island. The villa is set up nicely for a small family or two couples vacationing together. The property is well-maintained, and the local property manager very helpful!
Would love to return to this paradise!
