Saint Barthelemy, a French-speaking Caribbean island commonly known as St. Barts, is known for its white-sand beaches and designer shops. The capital, Gustavia, encircling a yacht-filled harbor, has high-end restaurants and historical attractions like the Wall House, whose exhibits highlight the island’s Swedish colonial era. Perched above town is 17th-century Fort Karl, looking out over popular Shell Beach.
Glamorous Saint Barthélemy, better known as St. Barts or St. Barths, exudes a seductive blend of European sophistication, natural beauty, and relaxed island charm.
Blond-sand beaches are the starring feature. Backed by rolling green hills, they beckon from secluded coves or sprawl along quaint coastal villages, tempting tourists with clear waters and coral reefs.
You won’t find high-rise resorts on this Caribbean beauty. Instead, boutique hotels and private villas peek from behind veils of tropical foliage, making this sun-soaked island a natural magnet for movie stars and moguls.
Le Village St Barts Hotel is located in a breeze-cooled hillside, La Colline de St.Jean, on a narrow back-road leading from La Baie de St Jean, the largest and most photogenic bay on St Barts island. St. Jean Beach is just a 3- to 5-minute walk down the hill; the adjoining village of St.Jean, with a convenient array of stylish boutiques, restaurants and bars, is a lively people-watching venue for both visitors and islanders.
Of course, another sure way to keep guests happy is to offer exceptional value on accommodations. ‘Always offer rates that are better value than the competition’ has always been the Charneau philosophy

With more than a dozen beaches on St. Barts, you can find at least one vacationer worshipping the sun and the surf daily. Each shoreline offers a different personality and the best of the bunch includes Flamands (for the scenery), St. Jean (for the beachside bistros) and Grand Cul de Sac (for the water sports). For vacationers wanting to leave civilization behind, consider Colombier, which requires a strenuous hike. For those who want to experience the beaches au natural, Saline offers a discreet area. When you start to prune, dry off and stroll the shops and restaurants of the capital city, Gustavia. Stick around until evening and enjoy a little laid-back island nightlife.
In the center of Gustavia, just a few steps away from the giant anchor resting across from the Anglican Church, is Orega (“it’s mine” in Japanese). A newcomer on the gourmet scene in Saint Barth, this restaurant quickly developed a stellar reputation. (#1 on Tripadvisor) Our success comes from the Franco-Japanese fusion concept. Greg, who initiated the project, designed the décor of the restaurant and adorned the dining room, and chef Clement Laffitte an expert in Japanese cuisine who has worked since the restaurant opened 3 years ago.
It’s the story of two French entrepreneurs, Rémi Laba and Aymeric Clemente, who met in New York City in the early 2000’s and decided to join forces to open the first Bagatelle in the City.
Drawing on their respective experiences in the hospitality industry, the duo imagined a place celebrating the South of France’s festive spirit, generous cuisine and friendly atmosphere.
With the success of the first restaurant, Bagatelle quickly started exporting its concept worldwide and bringing the French joie de vivre to the planet’s chicest destinations.
Hidden in the heart of Gustavia, Eddy’s tropical garden welcomes you in Saint Barthélemy since 1995 to offers an experience mixing french and local cuisine. Come with your family, friends or as a couple and enjoy a menu full of flavors elaborated by our Chef Franck. A wide choice of wine, cocktails and spirits will enliven your evening.
