With its colored roofs, its Creole architecture and its villas spread throughout the hills, Saint Barthelémy, or Saint Barth as it is familiarly called, is a unique site for many reasons. It’s the oldest volcanic island in the Lesser Antilles. Its population is of European origin with a majority of the inhabitants from Brittany and Normandy having settled here in the 17th century. French in fact, is the official language. Natives of Saint Barth speak one of two types of old French as well as two variations of Creole. The beauty of the island’s landscapes and its white sand beaches have made it a highly popular tourist destination for privileged visitors in search of French style hospitality and atmosphere in the heart of a protected nature reserve.
The Isle de France is located on the Anse des Flamands beach. The hotel is the only one on this beach which is semi-deserted with the exception of a few residential villas on the nearby hills. It consists of rooms, suites, bungalows and villas.
The décor is bright with contrasting touches of colors and materials. All the objects have been carefully chosen. Comfort is maximal with air conditioning, fans, satellite television, beach towels, etc. The bathrooms are spacious and are made of marble and light colored Capri stone. Some even have a large bay window. Room service is available at any time of day or night.
The main building with its 18th century style exterior columns contains both suites and rooms. The other lodgings are located in a vast and luxuriant garden between green hills.
By following the teak wood lanes, we find, hidden in a tropical garden, 12 bungalows each with a bedroom, a bathroom and a terrace facing the garden. Some of them are more spacious than others in order to accommodate entire families. The 2 Flamand villas on the beach were decorated by Penny Morrison and have their own private swimming pool. In another vein, the hotel proposes a “mountain bungalow” with a magnificent view.
To prolong a day at the sea or for total relaxation, the swimming pool is surrounded by deckchairs with ultra soft mattresses. But for a touch of ultimate luxury, the Isle de France’s spa is the place to go. Face and body care are available as well as an infinite number of different type massages whose names are an invitation to total serenity like maternal caress, citrus supreme, diamond magnetism in addition to Limi Juma, Thai and Tuina massages.
Finally, La Case de L’Isle (the Island Hut) is an open air restaurant with a huge terrace, a breathtaking view and an ingenious blend of French cuisine and local specialties in addition to a wine cellar with a comprehensive collection of French vintage wines.
Saint Barthelémy is divided into 40 quarters whose names are often very picturesque and representative of the island’s past history: Grande Vigie, Morne Croquet, Petite Saline, Lorient, Grand Cul de Sac and Marigot to mention just a few.
