Only eight square miles with a year round population of just 8,000.
Unlike many of the other Caribbean islands St Barts has steered away from mass tourism, and as such there are no large resorts, no high rise buildings, no fast food chains and cruise ships are small and kept to a minimum.
The key to the island is relaxation, fine dining, boutique shopping and a very sophisticated French feel, St Barts has more the feel of the French Riviera than anything else.
St Barts has 22 beaches, and around 80 restaurants and bars, so there is a lot to get around. Most people on vacation on St Barts will spend their time sunning themselves, eating drinking, relaxing, having massages, taking boat trips and enjoying the beach
Most of the accommodation on St Barts in villas. (The largest hotel has around 90 rooms), which is where our expertise comes in.
Gustavia (shown here) is the capital city (population 2000) and surrounds the port where the super yachts can be seen. Very French, Cartier, Bulgari, Vuitton, Hermes as well as Gucci and Armani and a wide range of restaurants.
St Jean is the next largest "town" very popular with the most fashionable beach, hosting the Eden Rock Hotel, the Nikki Beach bar and La Plage Restaurant, along with a range of local boutiques.
As for the rest of St Barts, it is small, and you are never more than a few minutes away from a beach, so we always suggest people choose their villa rather than the location.
There are around 450 villas on St Barts and we cover most of them, concentrating on the higher end, but to suit all budgets.
