About the property

Villa, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2), hot tub, heated swimming pool...

Nestled on the top of its own hill, Villa Le Perchoir (“The Perch”) offers complete privacy as it is hidden from the neighbors’ view by its elevation and trees on the south side. The villa provides sweeping views of the Colombier and Flamands landscape on the east and west sides, and from its beautiful open deck on the north side a cooling breeze and a stunning ocean view of Flamands Beach.

Located on the north side of St. Barth, Villa Le Perchoir is ideally located about a mile from the airport and town of St. Jean, and a mile and a half from the town of Gustavia. It is close to most of the island’s many points of interest, including world-class shopping, beautiful beaches, and a host of other activities all within a radius of three miles.

Designed to welcome two guests, the villa is on one level, built on a family property about three hundred meters from the public road. The private drive used for access is shared with neighbors who are all part of the owner’s family, with the nearest the owner himself one hundred meters down a hill. Its exceptional location gives Villa Le Perchoir the advantage of great privacy and quietness not often found on the island.

Coming into the villa, you have a large terrace with blinds where you can relax in a hammock or lounge chairs, or tan under the open sky while your meat or fish is grilling on the BBQ. From this terrace, you have access to the very large living-dining-kitchen area with views of the ocean through our sliding glass doors which run the length of the room.

The inviting living area features a comfortable sofa and chairs in front of a flat screen TV, so you can keep up with the world wide news, look at your favorite DVD or listen to your preferred music via our satellite TV, radio/CD/DVD/BLUE RAY/IPOD dock station surround sound system. The villa has internet wifi access for those of you who wish to stay connected with your laptop. Between the living area and the kitchen is a dining table which we predict you’ll rarely use because you’ll usually choose to eat outside on the gorgeous deck (described below) overlooking the ocean.

The kitchen is fully furnished. You will find utensils, cutlery and many appliances including a microwave, coffee-maker, blender, toaster, table water-heater, etc. The kitchen has an electric stove, oven, refrigerator/freezer with ice-maker, and dish-washer. Fortunately, we practically never have power cuts, but if that should occur Villa Le Perchoir has a no-noise automatic generator which takes over, so your meals and happiness are not interrupted. We want you to “Be Happy!”

The bedroom is spacious and lovely with a king bed, dressing table and a large closet. It is air-conditioned and also has a silent ceiling fan; if you prefer room temperature, the window and sliding glass door are equipped with screens through which the ocean breezes gently blow. The bathroom adjoins the bedroom and has a large two sink mirrored vanity with a generous shower area and lots of hot water. The villa has daily maid service with fresh towels Monday-Saturday. Walking out from the bedroom, you have direct access to both the terrace and the large, covered wrap-around deck.

The deck runs the length of the villa and has open views of the landscape on the west and a sweeping ocean view over Flamands Beach on the north and north-east sides. On the north side of the deck is a hammock, large dining table and chairs adjacent to the kitchen, comfortable lounge chairs, sun beds, and a hot tub, all overlooking the ocean. From the deck you can see the always changing blue of the sea and several islands and islets, including St-Maarten, Anguilla, Tintamarre, Fourchue, and more. You’ll never tire of this amazingly colorful view, and you’ll likely spend a lot of time on the deck enjoying the St. Barth life!

So this is Villa Le Perchoir: The peaceful haven of your dream vacation. My wife and I believe that you’ll fall in love with Villa Le Perchoir, as have our many repeat guests over the years. For availability please check the calendar below, and to make reservations, please email us directly at the below address. We look forward to hosting you at Villa Le Perchoir. A bientot!

About Michel Blanchard

I was born on St-Barth island (long time ago...) where I grew up. My wife and I had left St-Barth for reasons related to work, but we realized during that time that St-Barth is such a special and unique Island, so we came back choosing to live our lives on this beautiful island.

Michel Blanchard purchased this villa in 1996

Why Michel Blanchard chose Terre Neuve

My wife and I bought this property from my Father who built it with his own hands. He always wanted to give the best impression of the Island to our visitors and we think that renting this villa is the continuance of his vision.

What makes this villa unique

Our property combines the rare advantages of quietness, privacy and security, along with gorgeous view that is offered to the guests.

Beautiful Villa with spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful week at Villa Prechoir. The villa has a famous disappearing edge pool which overlooks the beautiful Flamand beach and nearby islands. The water is beautiful assortment of turquoise blue and greens. It was a very relaxing week. We have been visiting St Barts regularly for the last 16 years ( my husband longer) and this has definitely been one on the nicest views, private villas we have rented. Breakfast and lunch everyday on the porch overlooking the view was better than any restaurant views on the island. My husband is a good chef and he likes the kitchen. I also became addicted to the expresó machine and it became my drink of choice each morning. If you want a very relaxing private villa get away you should visit Prechoir. The owners also let us some fabulous cheeses, beer and soda. They also left a lovely bottle of red wine which we did not drink as we favor white wine in the sun. The bed is a king size and comfortable. We did ask for more pillows as we like them fluffy. The his and her closets were perfect and the double sinks in the bathroom worked great. If you need a supper relaxing getaway we would recommend Villa Prechoir.

The new pool and deck are amazing

  • 5 of 5

Our first visit to Le Perchoir was back in 2013. 5 stays later, we can't think of going anyplace else. Michel and Jany have completed a magnificent addition with the infinity pool and deck, taking the view from amazing to jaw-dropping spectacular. Happy hour at Le Perchoir was always one of our favorite activities on St Barts, but now even more so sitting in the comfortable outdoor furnishings overlooking the infinity pool and beyond to Flamands beach and Ile Chevreau. As night falls, the pool can be lighted in a variety of changing or static colors depending on which playlist I have on my iPhone connected to the excellent sound system. It really is magical.

I agree with others that the reviews here are highly accurate so there's not much more to add, other than thanking Michel and Jany yet again for their hospitality and another great St Barts vacation!

The best villa we have ever stayed at

  • 5 of 5

We have traveled all over the world, but have never been as happy as at Le Perchoir. We have stayed at Michel and Jany Blanchard's magnificent villa for more than ten years. We now go every January and May. The pride that Michel and Jany take in this property is obvious. Le Perchoir is magnificent because of its beauty and its incredible comfort. There are no negatives. Everything we can possibly need is there. The view from the deck is unbelievable.

Every day we spend at Le Perchoir is an experience of pure joy. If there is any negative, I suppose, it is that we do not want to leave the villa and do other things. It is just too nice there. We're counting the days until we return next month.

Flamands Gem

  • 5 of 5

I've been visiting St. Barths since 1980 and have stayed in a variety of lodgings. Villa le Perchoir has been, from multiple visits over the years, the best by far. It has gorgeous views of Flamands beach, total privacy and a spacious, comfortable and practical layout. It is the perfect romantic getaway for a couple. It's also an excellent value on an island not known for bargains. Michel is extremely responsive in resolving the inevitable minor issues which can arise on vacation.

St. Barths Heaven

  • 5 of 5

We have only just returned from our fourth year at Villa Le Perchoir and the feeling is always the same. Mostly sadness at having to leave, but relaxed, sated and tan and already looking forward to the wonderful experience of next year; we are feeling grateful that Michel will be able to extend our stay in 2017. Each and every review here is exceedingly accurate, including our own in February 2013, following our first stay. To be clear, we have never felt moved to write a review for any place that we have stayed before, but this feels like home and Michel and Jany are like family. The privacy, natural beauty and utter relaxation that one experiences at this villa and on St. Barths is unrivaled. Leisurely breakfast with fresh pastries from La Petite Colombe bakery begins each beautiful day in paradise. Choosing from the many gorgeous beaches or delicious restaurants is the only difficult part of your day. Which French Rosé wine will we have today? Decisions of the best kind. The largest supermarket and several smaller markets are conveniently located on your way away from and back to this villa, so dining at home is easily accommodated by a well-appointed kitchen and complimented by a stunning view. Shopping (if that's your thing) is also moments away. Villa Le Perchoir is such a jewel and enhanced by the beauty surrounding it; we find it comforting to return year after year to such a well-maintained and comfortable villa while enjoying the improvements and conveniences added by the owners. Details such as a rental 4WD vehicle, beach chairs/cooler/towels/umbrella, and maid service are all taken care of for you, so that you may fully relax and enjoy your stay. Somehow, they accomplish all of this pampering while maintaining your privacy. Tout le meilleur, Michel et Jany!

Love love love

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been going to St. Barths on our Anniversary since our honeymoon three years ago. Unfortunately for us, we did not find Le Perchoir until this year; and we have completely fallen in love with it. A large portion on the home is open air, which we loved so much; while the bedroom has a/c to ensure perfect sleeping conditions. The view is absolutely out of this world. The ocean literally hits you in the face and you really are up on your own little mountain, or perch - it is absolutely fantastic. We had planned to eat dinner out every night, but when we saw the terrace over looking the ocean, we decided to enjoy many of our dinners at the home. My husband is a chef and was very pleased with the kitchen and all that it offers, as well as the grill. There is really nothing lacking at all in this villa, they really have thought of it all. It is not a super fancy/modern villa but it truly does offer everything that is listed here that the owners state. It far exceeded both of our expectations and we were both so so sad to leave. Actually, I think the first thing my husband asked Michel when he showed us the home was, "is it for sale"?? I would recommend this villa for a couple looking for privacy, an AMAZING view, the perfect location, and that true 'home away from home' feel. We can't wait to go back and can't thank Michele and Jany enough for their gracious hospitality. Until next time!!! :)
