About the property

Taste the elegant french style!

Villa au fil de l'Eau is an spacious 3-bedroom villa inclusive of an additional private suite. It has an elegant yet contemporary French flavour, with a beautiful panoramic sea view. Guests enjoy spectacular views of Cul-de-Sac Bay, Orient Bay, and the island of St. Barthelemy sublimate by an elegant french decor.

Your French vacation home in the caribbean!

If you are a family or a small group of friends looking for that ideal island get-away with close proximity to amenities - Villa au fil de l'Eau is your french paradise retreat.

The Villa boasts of breath-taking views from every room: watch the shimmering blues of the sea and trace the coastlines of Pinel Island, Little Key Island, St. Barth, and Orient Bay.

The terrace has a large lounge and is fitted with 3 extra-sized cushions, and a private, intimate 'infinity' swimming pool -- perfect for a refreshing afternoon dip or a French Champagne & macaron degustation (request) for a romantic sunset.

The outdoor dinning table and chairs will be your favorite place for every meal! Taste our special degustation of french cheese, french wine and special french bread ( request ). Or every morning : fresh croissants and fresh bagettes for your breakfast ( request).

Light and space are the common themes expressed in the villa's open-planned living, kitchen, and dining areas. Taste the french style: elegant, yet extremely comfortable, giving the feel of a home away from home.

The kitchen is fully-equipped and laundry facilities are on-site.

Wireless internet and air conditioning are available throughout.


The master bedroom affords a 180 degree view of the ocean and is ideal for morning coffees or evening cocktails. There is a private dressing room and a king-sized bed. From the large bathtub guests may admire the sea or even watch a film on the 40 inch flat-screen TV/DVD, cable television is available in each room.

2nd and 3rd BEDROOMS

The villa's other two bedrooms are spacious and well-lit. Both bedrooms may be fitted with either a queen-sized bed or 2 single beds for children. These two bedrooms share a modern bathroom with shower and bath, and separate toilet.


'The Little Boudoir' offers an intimate space for 1 or 2 people. It is an air-conditioned private suite independent of the larger Villa and has a separate entrance.

The Little Boudoir opens onto a large terrace with a private garden, deck chairs, and breath-taking views of the sea. The suite has a small but fully-equipped kitchen, living area with two armchairs, large shower, TV, and WiFi.

Amazing view in beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

We spend 9 days in this beautiful Villa, Marion was a very attentive host, she gave us excellent recommendations for places to eat on the island.We went to The Hidden Garden in Grand Case twice its gourmet food in a super quaint atmosphere . We told her some of the knives in the kitchen was dull and the next day a professional chef set of knives showed up at the front door. The Villa is beautiful and we enjoyed the pool and the outside deck a lot. We had a photographer come to the house and did some family pictures. The house was more beautiful than the pictures and the view is stunning. The house was very clean and maintained. We hope to come back soon again.

Beautiful home! Gorgeous view. Large sliding glass doors open to enjoy the breeze.

  • 4 of 5

Marion is a gracious and helpful host. The home is very secure and private; driveway entry is wall with electronic sliding door. The kitchen is fabulous. The outdoor, partially covered patio seating is the go to hang out area. Refreshing pool with very nice chaise lounges. My friends stayed in the master suite, but I would have loved to have my morning coffee on their ocean facing patio!

Things to keep in mind. Try calling ur host when she checks you in. I could never figure out how to get my phone to call the international phone # even though mine was enabled. Just like it can happens at home, cable TV might need resetting so ask how to do that in advance. Air conditioning is singular units in each room, not a problem bc you only want to use at night anyway. Typical to all housing on islands. We would stay at any of Marion's propperties again, she wants your stay to be awesome!

Fabulous property; stunning view

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place to spend a vacation.

First, as other reviewers have confirmed, this villa is exactly as described, and the photos portray it accurately, with one exception: the photos can't compare to the stunning views of Orient Bay, wide enough to include both sunrises and sunsets (when we were there in February).

Other than the views, my favorite part of the villa was the pool. It has bench-type steps/seats for sitting and having a drink or where children can stand and play (supervised, of course). The pool is warmed by the sun through most of the day; part of the deck area is covered for those who prefer shade. The deck has plenty of lounge chairs and other comfortable seating for relaxing. The pool is deep enough and long enough to swim short lengths (widths?). A pool alarm is provided for children's safety.

We also loved the large sliding glass doors that open the living area, dining area, and kitchen to the outside. With the front door and kitchen windows open, a delicious breeze blows through, making air conditioning unnecessary (although it is available in the living area and all bedrooms).

The bed mattresses are quite firm, which may not be to everyone's taste. Like the rest of the villa, the bedrooms are whimsically decorated. The large master bedroom has two glass doors and a wide patio-style door opening onto the deck and the beautiful bay view.

The ensuite bathroom in the master bedroom provides somewhat less privacy than North Americans may be used to. A little judicious scheduling worked for us, however. Note that this reduction of privacy doesn't exist with the other bathroom in the villa, the one shared by the other two bedrooms, as that bathroom's WC is a separate, private room.

The kitchen is equipped well enough for most casual cooking. Marion, the villa's charming owner, assured us that anything we felt was missing from the kitchen would be provided. The pantry area adjacent to the kitchen includes a small washing machine; clothes are dried on an outside rack.

We all enjoyed our two-week stay very much. Marion popped in from time to time to make sure everything was going well. One evening during an area-wide power failure, she came over to make sure we were ok and to find candles for us. We're looking forward to coming back.

Spectacular Views

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from a 9 day vacation in St Martin. This villa was perfect and had everything we needed. We especially loved the pool and views. We watched the boats going to and from Pinal Island, wind surfers, parasailers, kayakers, Ski Doo's, beautiful boats coming and going.

The villa is located on the less busy side of St Martin on the French side. It is well kept, very modern and comfortable. There are many restaurant choices near the villa. We loved Villa pizza which is very close. Very affordable and good pizza and salads! Grocery very close and they had everything.

Marion amd Emanuel were very accommodating and helpful!

I highly recommend this property! We visited the other side of the island and found it very fun, but crowded, busy and hard to get around. It's really how you like to vacation and your interests. This villa was perfect for my husband and me.
