Whether you’re looking to relax in style or have some fun in the sun, the enchanting island of St. Barts has something to offer everyone. Rental Escapes offers a wide variety of luxury villas, meaning we can accommodate all budgets.
The rich culture of the island has always attracted foreign, blending a European flavour with local Caribbean customs. You’ll feel right at home talking with the laidback locals while sipping on a chilled cocktail. This also means the island has some amazing cuisine, which is a hybrid between French and Creole-style recipes.
Peak season lasts from the middle of December until the first week of January, while high season typically lasts from January until April. Local events are also really entertaining and provide a slice of culture, so aim to be there during Carnival or the Saint-Barthelemy Music Festival in the early winter months.
It’s important to note the island uses the Euro as a currency and tourists from Europe, Canada, and the U.S. simply need a valid passport to enter the country. The locals speak French but most travellers can get around by speaking English. Before you book your trip, it’s important to get all of your vaccines updated, especially for hepatitis A and typhoid.
Getting to the St. Barts is quite easy, but most flights usually connect via the neighbouring island of St. Martin. To get around, taxis are quite expensive and can be up to €80 due to lack of regulation. So it’s also recommended to rent a car so you can explore the flora and fauna of the island at your own leisure.
From the unique culture, cuisine, and landscape of the island, St. Barts offers the best tropical destination for your next luxury getaway.
