Your Guide to St Barts Villas

Officially known as Saint Barthelemy, St Barts is known for its lush landscapes, beautiful beaches, and chic culture. St Barts villas let you experience the best of this island with all the style and grace it deserves.

Named after Christopher Columbus’s brother, St Barts was settled by the French in the 17th century. However, they quickly sold the island to the Swedish in 1784, when it became a free port and saw its wealth rise dramatically. The French repurchased St Barts in 1878.

While the island’s French influence is readily apparent everywhere from its cafes to its shops today, its Swedish influence can also be felt in its architecture and city planning – especially in its capital, Gustavia.

Of course, that’s just one part of the St Barts story. The other part comes with the tourist boom of the 20th century and the many moguls, celebrities, and dignitaries who came to call the island home – starting with David Rockefeller in the 1950s. These tastemakers built up the first St Barts villas with an eye for easy sophistication, and this heritage continues to this day.
