La Maison is organized in the spirit of the sumptuous life of the planters’ houses but with a sense of intimacy and is decorated with antique colonial furnishings.
The house is designed for tropical living: natural ventilation, big bay windows which open wide and a hillside location caressed by the trade winds but out of range of storms and above the heat of the coast. Nestled among the flowering hills of St. Jean, it lies just 400 yards from the beach with no close neighbours but within walking distance of la Villa Créole with its restaurants and shops.
The seascapes provided by the breathtaking 180-degree ocean view vary constantly and the sunset provides a colourful spectacle each evening at cocktail hour, known locally as l’heure du planteur. An L shaped swimming pool just beyond the living area with a deck constructed of precious tropical woods creates surroundings for the house which are both striking and practical.
