Luxury Villa Rentals in St. Barts
St. Bart's (St. Barthelemy), which Christopher Columbus named after his brother, is a volcanic island in the Caribbean that owes much of its history and culture to France. The first evidence of human presence on the island, however, dates back to 1000 BC and to the Chiboney people, though the first official settlements were made by the Arawak Indians in 100 AD, until the Caribs took over the island nearly 700 years later. Today, though, it is the presence of France that has had the most impact, as the official language of the island is French, and French cuisine competes with Creole and West Indian dishes for the palates of locals. Along with this heritage, the island is most famous for its many beautiful beaches, and as such most St Bart's vacation rentals revolve around the sand, surf, and sea.
Because the island has long been such a popular tourist destination, a high number of St Bart's vacation rentals are available for rent all throughout the island, each offering their own unique advantages. Of course, the island is most well-known for its luxury villas and estates, and indeed some of the finest rentals in the world can be found on the island, staffed with everything from professional chefs to tennis coaches. However, more affordable condo and home rentals can also be found all throughout the island, thereby ensuring that everyone gets to enjoy the beaches and sea that have been the backdrop of countless photo shoots.
St Bart's is not a very large island, meaning a car is not necessarily required to reach most St Bart's vacation rentals. In fact, if you're renting from a property management company, then they'll likely be more than happy to arrange an airport pick-up service for you. Once you arrive at your destination, most of your travelling will be done by sea, since St Bart's is one of the premier sailing, yachting and fishing destinations in the world. Touring the island can also be done by bus, bicycle, or even on foot, though renting a car for a day or two to drive through the island can be an excellent way of discovering beautiful sights and stops that are off-the-beaten-track.
