About Francois Dessemontet
happy in the sun !
Francois Dessemontet purchased this Villa in 2011
Why Francois Dessemontet chose Anse des Cayes
St Bart is unique in many respects: delightful climate, elegance of the restaurants, white sands and pristine nature areas, safety at all times, warm welcome by the local population. I came here for retirement and remain attracted to this island since 2001
What makes this Villa unique
The intense communion with sea and sun, the exclusive privacy, the exquisite accents of art works and furnishings, the books in five languages in the library, the good piano, the large flat screen TV sets, the view, the view, the view...

Nice setting, pretty villa, in need of some repairs
Four of us stayed at Les Brisants. The view is spectacular and the pool is lovely, as are the home furnishings. There were a few maintenance issues: three of the four screen doors in the main house were broken (the owner is working on getting them replaced); the TV's in the bedrooms were somehow tied to one another, such that the TV in the first bedroom had to be on so that guests in the second bedroom could watch their TV; the listing indicated that we could use an on-site washer/dryer, but it was behind a locked door. When I found a set of keys to open the door and tried to use the equipment, I discovered that the dryer was not operational. I called the maid who said we could not use the equipment and she scolded us about opening the door and admonished us not to do so in the future. She would be willing to do the laundry for 12 euros. When I wrote to the owner, he agreed to pay for 2 loads to be washed and dried during our stay.
The house is situated in a valley and does not get cross breezes and there is no air conditioning in the main part of the house, so the main part of the house is always very hot. There is AC in the bedrooms. One of the king suites enjoys a beautiful view, while the other does not. Beds are very comfortable and the bathrooms are well-equipped.
The owner was very easy to communicate with and very polite in all of his correspondence.
Yes, it is true that some prior guests in the weeks before had broken the mosquitoes screens, which are by the way not common in Saint Barth villas. Yes, it is true that in our villa as in most, the technical room with laundry machine and dryer is closed. Yes, through mails we found a satisfactory solution. There is no A/C in the living room, but a fan. Yes, the TV in the second room was in need of a stronger amplifier, unbeknownst to us, and we have ordered it.
Finally, the guests let the main door slam so that the locksmith charged us 500$ for installing a new lock, and we took that on us. Yes, it is true that the contact with these guests has always been pleasant.
Amazing, Private and Peaceful!
Absolutely amazing! We have traveled all over the Caribbean and this has been my favorite place! If you are looking for amazing views, privacy and a place of serenity, then it doesn't get any better than this villa! We will definitely be back, 12 days was just not long enough. Thank you Francios and Paul!

Absolutely Wonderful Villa
Just returned from 2 weeks at Villa Les Brisants. The Villa was very private and had breathtaking views. The bed was comfy and the kitchen was well equipped. We usually run around a lot when we are in SBH, but this time we spent a lot of time hanging out at the villa.
Les Brisants is very beautiful, with absolute water views, privacy and a sunny infinity pool.
It is as it looks on the website, beautifully decorated inside, a fabulous bathroom area, and with a very comfortable bed with top quality sheets, a nice touch in a villa stay.
We have been to St Barth a few times before staying in St Jean, so we enjoyed the privacy and space of a whole villa to ourselves.
We loved relaxing by the pool area, and the sound of waves lulled us to sleep each night.
You can walk to the Payot spa at the Manapany resort in Anse de Cayes, and for all the things you may need, nothing is more than a short drive away. Gustavia for high end shopping and nightlife, or take a sundowner and swim at the beautiful Shell beach. Nikki Beach, La Plage bar and Eden Rock at St Jean are easily accessible, while Flamands and Colombier are also an easy drive, making this one of the best spots on the island.
The manager was of great assistance to us welcoming us and making sure we had everything we needed. The maid came everyday as arranged and was a delight. There is even a piano to enjoy and you can use the espresso machine to make a cappuccino each morning.
We hope to return to Les Brisants as soon as possible, thank you Francois.
Thanks for a very nice review, that highlights the main priorities of the owners: offering a wonderful location, truly luxury accomodation, and good services. We are proud that you mentioned the manager and the Housemaid, who along with the gardener and the poolman are key to the success of vacationing in a villa. we will tell them ! And yes, the Villa les Brisants is extremely central to the island of St Bart, although it is so totally private and secluded.
The Villa is wonderfully located on the Ocean, close to Gustavia the capital city of St Bart, and to the airport, on the preferred side of the island.
