Villa Avalon is one of St. Barths' great properties of charm and character. All three bedroom pavilions each have en suite bathrooms and oceanviews Large terrace around swimming pool area invites casual lounging, and entertaining. The mature, exotic gardens of Latanier palms, fruit trees and night blooming jasmine evoke a memory of the French West Indies lifestyle from long ago. The gate entrance leads up a long driveway to the villa main parking for four cars and entrance stairs. A service road provides further parking for four cars behind the villa with direct access to entrance of the kitchen/and dining and pool area.

Landscape lighting automatically illuminates this tropical paradise at sunset. Mosaic pool with internal lighting sets the theme for poolside entertaining and lounging. Bose home entertainment system has outdoor speakers and indoor surround sound in salon/library.

Unique, open style dining pavillon, adjacent to pool terrace, seats 12 for more formal dinners. There is an outdoor gazebo next to the pool with stone and glass table seats 6 to 8 for lunchtime dining al fresco, overlooking the beautiful Leeward ocean views.

Each room is tastefully decorated with handpainted colonial or west Indian furnishings, mixed with rococo style antiques and paintings.

The lower guest suite is off the stairs going up to the main level pool/dining pavilion. A few steps further up from the pool, dining pavilion, there is a cozy, salon/ library pavilion. The salon gallery has outdoor sitting with rocking chairs for a relaxing sunset drink, or enjoy a fine Havana cigar and cognac!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1989

About the owner: Avalon is a lovely estate situated on one acre in the typical village of Colombier. It was love at first sight when it was purchased in 1989 and we have made St. Barths our home ever since. We love our island lifestyle and have professional lives based here on the island. That said we have a passion for travel and do so whenever we can. 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 all our guests that have a chance to take time to unwind and enjoy the unparalleled calm and beauty of our island estate.

Why the Owner Chose Saint Barthélemy:
Having travelled the world and lived in more than five countries, we felt the diverse lifestyle this area offers is truly exceptional. We love our home and take pleasure in sharing it. The property has been well maintained in its colonial style but does not lack for modern convienence.

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! Most importantly, we are here should you need anything from whether finding the right light switch to knowing the perfect restaurant for a special celebration, where most villa owners are rarely on the island.
