A few weeks ago I decided last minute to spend a few days in Saint Barths, one of my favorite beach destinations… I used to spend my summers there with my family when I was as a kid and then as a teenager.
The last time I was there was four years ago with a group of friends – the pre-Romy years. Now a mother, I was very excited to be able to take my daughter to one of my favorite holiday destinations and share with her my childhood memories.
As a Parisian girl living in New York, Saint Barths is one of the most perfect holiday destinations: just a couple hours away, and with zero time difference (always great with a young child!) this French Caribbean Island offers a drastic change of scenery.
You can experience different “Saint Barths”: The romantic one spending the day on a deserted beach, the party one, and the casual family one. There is enough here to please every crowd.
WHERE WE STAYED
Wimco Villas set-up our flights, rental car and of course found us the right villa. We stayed at Villa ANK, a beautiful three bedroom villa in Colombier with a pool overlooking the ocean, just a few minutes from Plage des Flamands. The house was great, enough space between all the rooms and all the amenities needed, from a blender for my morning smoothie, to an automatic security alarm around the pool which made me felt much safer with Romy running around. The house also came with WIMCO’s concierge service, helping us to book dinner reservations or activities around the island such as Jet Skiing. Everything was there to make our life as easy as possible. The perfect vacation!
