About Christophe Le Chanu

We are a French Family that loves St Martin and decided to build that house for our family and friends vacations.


Christophe Le Chanu purchased this villa in 2010

Why Christophe Le Chanu chose World

I choosed that unique location to built the villa because the area is very quiet but also closed from the island's best vacationing spots. The great beach front location made the decision.

What makes this villa unique

The panorama is just perfect and I like all rooms have nice sea views.

I like to sit by the pool or under the gazebo and enjoy the ocean breeze.

Start a kayak trip to the island's natural reserve from the private beach is a must.

Beautiful House in Exellent Location

  • 5 of 5

Two families (4+4) spent a week at this beautiful villa, and very much enjoyed our stay. The house is great, and the outdoor space with pool is fabulous. Pinel Island is a short kayak trip away and has a great beach. Cul de Sac is quiet and out of the way, but an easy drive to Grand Case or Orient Beach. The price point on this rental was good compared to others we considered or have stayed at in the past. Highly recommended!

11 Days in St. Martin

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I along with three other couples stayed at Villa Coccinelle in early February 2016. The pictures of the villa are true to life. This property is more laid back and island style house. Villa Azul just above this property has a more modern feel but less outdoor space. Bruno was a pleasure to work with. Each room was very clean and we had everything we needed. Only complaints were the mattresses are a little on the hard side and the outdoor shower has been turned of by owner. The outdoor space and view are the best part of this villa. There is a large dining table and a separate sitting area. Almost all of our time on the property was spent around the pool and outside sitting areas. Had a great BBQ using the charcoal grill. You must visit Pinel Island using the kayaks. Would definitely go back.

10 days in St. Martin

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Villa Coccinelle for 10 days in January (2 couples each with 2 children), and enjoyed excellent weather the entire time. The Villa is at the end of Cul-de-Sac Bay in a quiet area along with a couple neighbouring villas and seems to be in a very safe area. Bruno lives next door and was always there to help for any issues. The Villa was just as advertised: beautiful, amazing pool, and all very clean. 3 bedrooms upstairs and the 4th downstairs. Mattresses were comfortable and the villa was very clean. Cleaning lady comes twice a week and cleans the entire house. Kitchen was well equipped and other than missing a mesh-strainer, allowed us to cook everything we wanted. The eating area is outside and the temperature at night was always comfortable. The bugs do come out a bit, but with either a citronella candle or a bit of bug spray, you didn't notice them at all. The outdoor area was really amazing to relax in and let the kids play while always being able to supervise them. Bruno prepared high chairs and cribs for the kids, which helped a lot on the packing side. Would definitely go back to this villa!

Couple of things to know ahead of time:

1) Breakers popped twice during our stay but were easily reset (there is a panel of individual breakers in the pantry wall near the kitchen, and a main incoming breaker near the door entrance upstairs).

2) Wi-Fi works but is far from supporting normal download speeds. Forget streaming anything.

3) Villa is right on the water but not a beach that you would swim in (beware of jelly fish and sea-crabs) but fine to kayak from. In fact, nowhere on Baie de Cul-de-sac is there any real beach. You need to head to some of the other popular beach at a driving distance.

4) DVD player is regionalized, which means will only play PAL format. Your North American DVDs won't work in the player, but if you have an HDMI port on your laptop, you can connect to the TV to play your movies onto it.

5) Bring your own soap packets for the dishwasher and laundry machine.

6) Do make time for Pinel Island (ease kayak stretch across where you'll cross turtles on your way over), as it's really a slice of paradise!

7) Recommended beaches (driving distance away) are Anse Marcel Beach (our favorite), Orient Bay Beach (most popular and populated), Friar's Bay Beach (more local feel).

8) Markets on the French side only provide European products, but you can go to any of the markets on the Dutch side of North American products.

Quiet with Beautiful View

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Villa Cocinelle with 8 of us (2 families) in the house. It was a very nice house and we especially appreciated that each bedroom had it's own shower and toilet. We especially loved the two outdoor seating areas, the dining table and chairs for all 8 of us and the pool with a fabulous view! We also appreciated that the kayaks were included with the house and enjoyed being able to kayak out to the sand bar and over to Pinel Island. Bruno was helpful with any questions we had and our cleaning lady gave us the best suggestions for groceries (Super U for the better produce) and Simply Market (the closest). She also gave us a great tip for BBQ at Lolo's in Grand Case. We also ordered pizza and salad twice from Villa Pizza just up the road - it was delicious!! Just a few other things to be aware of: 1) there are not basic amenities provided such as toilet paper, hand soap or kleenex. We had to purchase those ourselves which in the US are typically provided in a house rental. However, several power adapters were provided which was great! 2) I would agree with a few others about the mosquitos. Some of the people in our party did get more bites than others. Some of us did not get any at all. 3) We also used the washing machine but needed to use our own laundry soap. And there are lines outside to hang dry the clothes. 4) Finally, one caution is to not pull into the driveway. There is a gate lock in the ground that nearly caused dameage to our rental car so we just stayed parked on the road. Overall, it was a great stay and certainly a very quiet location and easily accomodated all 8 of us.

From the first time I made contact with Bruno until this moment, everything was just perfect. My family of 8 spent 1 week here and it was wonderful. We were 6 adults and 2 small children (3 and 5) and the house was more than enough. Coccinelle is really like a dream. GORGEOUS everything. The layout of the house for us was perfect. Fully equipped kitchen, laundry room and storage, living room and Bedroom suite (with full bath/toilet) were on the first floor. The second floor (same floor as the main entrance) had 3 more bedrooms, 3 more full bathrooms and an office space with desk, pull out sofa, books/games etc. All of these spaces, first and second floor, lead outside to the top either a balcony or "veranda" overlooking the amazing pool and bay (only steps away). Let me talk about the outdoor space now... This was a haven. Some of our party never wanted to leave the house simply because why would we ever want to?!!? Private pool with pool cleaning service 2x's during out stay (as did our cleaning lady). TWO Outdoor dining space. and 2 separate seating areas with lovely outdoor furniture. We lived out here enjoying the sun, breezes and sounds of the water and palm trees swaying. There is a private walkway down to the dock area (with outdoor showering area) leading to the private sea kayaks (included with the rental) that on several occasions we used to travel to the "secluded"/get to ONLY by boat Pinel Island. I could go on about this island in a whole different review. Bruno was fantastic, responsive, professional and welcoming from my first inquiry thru the end. I HIGHLY recommend this rental. We will FOR SURE return. Thank you Bruno for everything!

Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 7 spent a week here. We absolutely loved our stay!! Coccinelle is very spacious and clean, it had all the amenities of home. The house is situated in a protected cove and provides all the privacy and convenience for your vacation needs. The large pool was such a treat to wake up to every morning and the proximity to Pinel Island made kayaking everyday something to look forward to. We cannot wait to come back. I will rent this house over and over again. Thank you Bruno for all your help. We will return again ASAP. xoxo
