A Lost Village In The Heart Of The Caribbean Sea

Located on the small island of St. Barths, Villa Palm Springs is committed to a contemporary design inspired by the spirit of the 70s of the ‘dolce vita’. Its architecture blends fully with the landscape, in which the vegetation and crystal clear waters give the enclave a mystical aura.

Among the wildest vegetation and the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea, we find the tiny island of San Bartolomé, better known as St. Barths or Saint Barth. In it, the days become calm and peaceful. A stillness that runs from end to end this lost corner in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. In fact, the homes and lodgings located there are also built under the fresh and contemporary style that floats over the island. An example of this is the exclusive Villa Palm Springs, designed by architect Patrick Raffenaud, who was inspired by the great deconstructivist architect Zaha Hadid to shape this residence made for the enjoyment of the French West Indies.

Far from the house, on the horizon, we can perceive the fresh and oozing waves of the island. Meanwhile, nature makes its way between the sides of the house. All this, together with the gentle and friendly atmosphere of the area, gives the residence the image of a paradisiacal destination that anyone would like to look at. Its subtle and dynamic architecture completes the Caribbean atmosphere.

The villa stands out for a very specific style, omnipresent throughout the property: it is the spirit of the 70s, which makes us feel at home from the first moment. Among its tones, the bright colors that blend into the vegetation stands out, bright orange that baffles the imagination, and luxurious upholstery that refers to the hedonistic magic that transpires everywhere.

You may wonder: Who resides in this magnificent residence? Well, the property was born out of the imagination of a wealthy European couple whose main residences are London and Paris. His love of the iconic free-spirited style of la dolce vita is completely prevalent in this villa. As do contemporary outdoor sofas and furniture that blend into the unique partition of bright contrasts.

Of course, if we have to stay with something, we cannot fail to mention the torrid sunsets that occur every day in front of the house. A relaxing and comforting setting while the silence of the island surrounds us at every step. In fact, to reinforce that feeling of absolute disconnection, the property has been located in the most sought-after part of the island, in a magical enclave a few steps from Gouverneur beach and the main shopping and restaurant center: Gustavia. Have you not wanted to take a bath along the Caribbean coast?
