About Ana Palce
Avalon is a small estate situated on one acre in the typical village of Colombier. It was love at first sight when it was purchased in 1989. St. Barths has been our home since then. We love our island lifestyle and although we have professional lives based here on the island, we travel frequently. Avalon has been featured in Danielle Roches new coffee table book, Islands. There are 8 pages that cover the colorful decor, and gardens of our villa as well as the vistas. We hope that the guests that have a chance to stay with us can take time to unwind and enjoy the unparalleled calm and beauty of our island estate.

Why Ana Palce chose St Barthelemy
Having travelled the world and lived in more than five countries, we felt the diverse lifestyle this area offers is truly exceptional.
What makes this villa unique
The sound of the birds singing or watching the waves crashing on the shores of the islands in front of our property. Observing the turtles slowly climb up the driveway hoping to have a snack, or the hummingbirds that hover in the flowers in front of the living room gallery, the iguanas that come and observe us from the rocks. The island breezes.. Night-time treefrogs singing. Roosters that crow in the morning, everything that brings us far from the hectic city life!
Guestbook comments from the owner
I have been a regular visitor and also former homeowner in St Barths and have leased
several properties there over the past almost 20 years. I have stayed many times at Villa Avalon
and it is one of my favorite villas on the island. I love the privacy the villa provides by having all the sleeping quarters separate and the gathering areas are perfectly situated. It is comfortably yet very stylishly furnished, reflective of the elegant owner and is properly stocked for dining and entertaining. It has all the old world island ambience, charm and romance without lacking any the important and necessary modern conveniences we Americans don't like to be without.
Mme. Cohen is gracious and accommodating and knows how to anticipate ones needs well in advance.
I have found it always more successful to lease from an American homeowner
as it eliminates the problem of language and also their understanding of our particular expectations.
