Terres Basses, St.Martin - 2 bedroom villa
Drive through the wrought iron gate of this charming and romantic villa where the South of France meets the Caribbean. The moment you step into the lovely courtyard driveway, the mesmerizing views take your breath away. Enter the villa and the fabulous vista expands in front of you, so intimate and close it seems you can almost touch it; flowing over the pool, the lush tropical gardens and out to the sapphire blue Caribbean Sea dotted with boats and vessels. It is very serene here, in your own private world. This is a wonderful place for a romantic getaway or honeymoon. Or it can be rented with its sister villa, La Provençale, for larger gatherings.
The villa is open, breezy and filled with views from every angle. The house has a modern attitude blended with iconic South of France details; tiled roof, classic columns defining spaces, wrought iron railing, white walls and polished tiles throughout. The open plan living and dining room, with glass doors that fully open to the view, is charming and cozy; comfortably contemporary with touches of Provence charm. Oversized white furniture is accented with iconic Provence colors and pretty painted furniture. The tiled French dining table and colorful chairs sit just in front of the well-equipped country style kitchen with upscale appliances. Polished terracotta floors run throughout the interiors spaces. Contemporary recessed lighting provides a soothing wash of light.
The large deep blue pool sits between the living areas and the view. Cover loggias and sundecks provide comfortable spaces for lounging and dining. The two air conditioned bedrooms, both with sea views, sit at one of the covered loggia. Decorated in pretty traditional Provencal fabrics and classic painted furniture, they provide a peaceful respite. The large, pretty bathrooms take a contemporary twist on classic tile work typical of Provence.
Although secluded, you are very close to amenities. You are steps from Baie Longue Beach. Only 10 minutes to the international airport and it’s a short drive to Baie Nettle’s new culinary stars; Le Sand, Dreams and Mezza Luna. In 10 minute you reach the lovely French capital of Marigot with restaurants, shops and galleries, historic buildings and the Creole Market. Drive 25 minutes to Grand Case and Philipsburg’s shopping haven.
