Saint Barthelemy often abbreviated to Saint Barth in French, or St. Barts in English, is part of the collective of the four territories among the Leeward Islands in the northeastern Caribbean that comprise the French West Indies, along with Guadeloupe, Martinique and Saint Martin.
Situated just below the Tropic of Cancer, St. Barts holidays take one to a small, rocky island of volcanic origin which is sunny with very little rain. It comprises lush meadows, pristine beaches, green mountains, beautiful sandy coves and sparkling clear waters. The capital, Gustavia, offers a harbour which is alive with everything from small boats to luxury yachts.
St. Barths retains an elite yet relaxed atmosphere and continues to appeal to travellers who seek an escape which is as refined as it is relaxing and scenic. The island boasts luxury hotels, breathtaking views and food and wine that the most discerning of Parisians would be proud of. Scattered over the island travellers can find several antique inns creating an air of nostalgia of the provincial days of old.
With luxury holidays every day is a new adventure into paradise. Guests will be captivated by the outstanding beauty and tranquillity, the peace of the island and its resorts immediately discards the stresses of everyday life. While on St. Barths it has been said that the warm weather is rivalled only by the warmth of the reception that one receives from all on the island.
