St Barth’s, the island of luxury and exclusivity of the Caribbean

St Barth or St. Bartholomew is a territorial overseas collectivity belonging to France,located in the Caribbean Sea, north of the archipelago of Guadeloupe. A small volcanic island in the Antilles arc. In Gustavia, the charm of the old city with Scandinavian accents mixed with the effervescence of the free port dedicated to tax-free shopping. The neighborhood of St. Jean is the most urbanized and the most touristy of the island. St. Jean Bay is grouped around the airport and two large white sand beaches lining the background. Excellence, luxury, serenity are some of the adjectives that define this destination.

3. Eden Rock
Eden Rock Hotel evolved from an imaginatively sited house built fifty years ago by Remy de Haenen, a celebrated local adventurer. In 1995, the property was bought by an English couple, David and Jane Matthews, who intended, initially, to use it as a holiday home. However, a small bar was operating … which was kept running … one thing followed another … and five years later Eden Rock Hotel was invited to join the prestigeous Relais & Chateaux group of distinguished hotels.
