Robb Report Villa Marie Saint-Barth

Villa Marie Saint-Barth is a slice of tropical paradise nestled high in the hills above Colombier. Owned and designed down to the last detail by the stylish French hotelier Jocelyne Sibuet, the boutique property is bursting with colour and charm. Days are easily passed sitting out on your porch, relaxing in your outdoor bathtub and lazing by the intimate palm-tree-ringed pool (where you'll fill up on rosé from Sibuet's own vineyard in Aix-en-Provence). Should you want to stretch your legs, Villa Marie has the unique distinction of being located on a part of the island where you can actually walk. The hike to Colombier, arguably one of the prettiest beaches in the Western Hemisphere, is a scenic 30 minutes down a steep hillside. (Paradise is worth it and so is dinner back at Villa Marie-motivation for both directions.)
