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.
