Lush palms and tropical gardens line the drive of this pretty French Creole villa, setting the stage for a stunning view filled with blues. The pool draws your eye to the azure Caribbean Sea off the shores of Baie Longue Beach. Palms and colorful foliage create a colorful frame. At night, the rich pink sunset, the occasional green flash and ships that sail out at evening come into view.
The outdoor spaces for lounging and dining are beautifully designed. Wide covered verandas, gazebos and a spacious pool deck wrap around the entire villa. Beautiful pots and little gardens on the terrace are filled with exotic plantings. Epi wood and terracotta run throughout the exterior; terracotta floors provide cool interior flooring. Teak and wrought iron furniture cushioned in sky blue compliment the view. A gazebo features an outdoor kitchen with barbeque.
The interior blends seamlessly with the exterior and the views. French doors open wide for enjoying the views and breezes. An airy open plan space contains the living room/media area filled with comfortable furniture in sky blue accented with sophisticated nautical prints. Teak and painted furniture plus charming accessories compliment the decor. The white French country kitchen features professional appliances and large windows open to the view.
The four bedrooms open to the terrace. Three are equal in size and furnished in teak, painted woods and French country fabrics. The en-suite bathrooms feature iconic, colorful tiles from Provence, each in a unique color. The master suite sits at the end of the veranda. A full kitchen and open plan living area is adjacent to the elegant, romantic master bedroom furnished with a canopied antique bed and comfortable seating.

This was the best vacation I have ever been on. The villa was a classic place to stay. There was more space than I could have imagined. Luxury Retreat also helped with booking the most amazing activities the island had to offer. I felt like I not only got to know the island, but also was able to relax and enjoy the villa. The staff was amazing and super friendly. Everything was set up in advance in order for me to have a smooth and carefree vacation.
The view is spectacular - Website pictures do not do this villa justice! It is well appointed and decorated. The furniture is high-end. The color scheme well-thought out. Books and games abound, and every appliance convenience is offered. The security of the gate and onsite caretaker made a huge difference to our comfort level. The guard dog "Max" an added bonus We used the option to pre-stock the villa with beverages/food before our arrival -- what a convenience and time saver! To arrive at such a beautiful home, to open the awaiting bottle of champagne we pre-ordered, to feel the cross breeze, and gaze over the pool out to the ocean beyond was just...perfect.
To celebrate a family event, we took this villa to accommodate three generations. The place is magnificent with beautiful views, and lots of indoor and outdoor space. The kids lived in the pool and could make as much joyful noise as they wanted. The decor was lovely and the kitchen met our every need....even the China was high end. Finally, the housekeeper and maintenance man were as helpful and nice as could be. We never had to contact management but received check-in calls from them.
We were very happy with La Croisette and especially impressed with Jasmine- our Concierge. She was always available and happy to help us in any and every way. She was delightful and professional - from welcome to departure.
La Croisette and the service from Luxury retreats exceeded expectations. The house was as advertised online, but the photos do not capture the true size of the property and the various alcoves to relax in. The villa is truly large and can accommodate 8 people comfortably without encroaching on anybody's personal space or privacy. The kitchen was recently renovated with a phenomenal stove top. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the equipment that you'd expect from a chef's personal kitchen. It was really a joy to cook in. The beds were particularly comfortable and the rooms' air conditioning strong and quiet; I haven't slept so well and so long in years. Eileen was there daily and was super gracious; she ensured our rooms and the house were cleaned daily. I highly recommend planning your holiday with Luxury Retreat and to stay at La Croisette for relaxed, comfortable, open air living.
