The moment you drive into the beautiful stone walled garden courtyard, an enticing glimpse of the sea appears before you. Enter the house and the view expands to its full glory. Straight ahead is the inviting blue pool and the mesmerizing sapphire waters of Baie Longue, Baie Prune and the Caribbean Sea. The vistas flow from one side of the villa to the other, visible from every room. All around you are beautiful tropical gardens - it is paradise.
The atmosphere in this elegant and charming villa is a blend of South of France meets the Caribbean. Serene whites mix with iconic Provence prints and classic colors of yellow, blue and mango. Beautiful carved teak doors and teak furniture mix with wicker both inside and out. Eclectic art and accessories add a very personal touch. Soft terracotta floors flow throughout.
On the right as you enter the villa is the spacious, fully air conditioned indoor living and dining area. To the left is the large sunny yellow gourmet kitchen where you can channel your inner Julia Child while cooking on the stunning Lacanche stove. You truly feel as if you are in the South of France. Each of the interior rooms flows seamlessly out onto the covered terraces and sun decks. The space is filled with comfortable seating and inviting areas for al fresco dining, lounging, playing, and enjoying the view plus barbequing on the fabulous Viking grill. The large, renovated pool has built in tables and seating, creating a perfect perch to enjoy a cool beverage.
All five bedrooms are spacious, have walk-in closets and fabulous views. The dcor reflects the fabrics and colors of Provence. The large en suite bathrooms feature handmade Provence tiles, each bathroom in a different color. Three bedrooms are off the main living room. The two bedrooms on the lower level have private terraces and views.
Although secluded, you are very close to amenities. You are steps from Baie Longue Beach. Its a short drive to Baie Nettles new culinary stars; Le Sand, Dreams and Mezza Luna. In 10 minute you reach the charming French capital of Marigot with restaurants, shops and galleries, historic buildings and the Creole Market. Drive 15 minutes and youre at the airport. Drive 25 minutes to Grand Case and Philipsburgs shopping haven.
KNOW BEFORE YOU GO
Internet on the island can be inconsistent and signal strength is generally lower than in developed cities. As our guests in St. Martin, be prepared to work less and relax more.
Channel your inner Julia Child in La Provencales beautiful French kitchen. Whip up a gourmet meal on the stunning Lacanche stove or grill to perfection on the Viking BBQ grill. Better yet, arrange for a professional chef to prepare your meals while you relax poolside.
Three bedrooms are on the upper pool level, two of which are connected to the air-conditioned living room. On the lower level, you will find the two additional bedrooms, the master being one.
For even larger groups, La Provencale can be rented with its sister property, Little Provence, to create a seven-bedroom rental.

We love Villa La Provençal - Have stayed here in the past and this experience didn't disappoint. Beautiful villa and a great location.
A great week on the island.
We had a great week on the island and the house. We really enjoyed it and thought overall it was a great experience.
Wonderful family vacation
Great house that fitted our families' needs perfectly, good pool for swimming and lounging,
wonderful outdoor dining space, good bedrooms each with a bathroom, wonderful views on both sides of the house. We worked with Luxury Retreats to rent jeeps and schedule restaurants and events. This worked very well.
Luxurious accomodations and excellent service in a tropical paradise
Our family was completely delighted with our accommodations. The villa was stunning and the service was outstanding. The location was also ideal... close to grocery store, beaches and restaurants. We highly recommend this villa as a superb destination spot.
Luxurious property with a beautiful view and too many mosquitos.
Had a fantastic vacation with my family (husband, mother, three sisters, brother-in-law, nephew and niece). The property was beautiful and well appointed. The housekeeper (Rosemund) was wonderful. Very attentive and responsive to our needs and a delightful person. The layout of the villa was great for families. Our biggest complaint was the mosquitos. We were stunned by the overwhelming amount of mosquitos. We had to call the concierge service and ask that the villa be sprayed half way through our stay. we had to pay for that service. I think that more could have been done to address the problem (e.g.have the property sprayed more often). we were promised a mosquito lamp but it never arrived. Other issues relate to maintenance problems - broken dishwasher, broken exhaust fan over outdoor grill, broken locks on doors. Maintenance service was very responsive. But we felt that these issues should have been attended to before we arrived.
Great stay on the lovely St Martin island. Best climate in the world and a wellfunctioning society. The house we rented met all our expectations and made the whole vacation to memorable experience.
