Saint Barthelemy - Gustavia
Child Age Restrictions: Children welcome
With 270° views of the sea, DR Villa was designed in a traditional colonial architectural style with an ensemble of a main house and three bungalows offering a total of seven bedrooms. Poised on the hillside above the harbor in Gustavia, DR Villa embodies the heritage of West Indies architecture. Its four separate buildings perfectly integrate with the landscape and appear to have been integral to this imposing site for centuries. Interiors are dressed with warm woods, echoing the dark mahogany that was popular during the Colonial era, from the desks, beds, and a long central table in the living room adorned with books, to doors, bathroom cabinetry, and paneling on the walls with honey-hued cane inserts. Clever surprises include a wine cellar tucked under the stairs that lead down to three bedrooms on the lower level, which also provides access to the long, serpentine swimming pool that hugs the rocky hillside. DR VILLA embraces the sea with its sweeping views of the harbor and surrounding islands. The living room, with its high, peaked ceiling, is designed to remain open to the breezes coming in on all four sides, negating the need for air-conditioning. The rugged terrain outside has been tamed with a waterfall that cascades down the rocks, and a little terrace above the house where brightly colored Adirondack chairs add an unexpected touch of color and charm. The overall success of the villa comes from its restrained Caribbean lines and elegant stature. DR VILLA is also referred to as Villa La Pointe.
