Le Mas Caraibes
TERRES BASSES, ST. MARTIN3 bedrooms, 3 bath, sleeps 6
Eclectic interiors with jeweled lighting, wooden-leaf fans, and bold Indian textiles await you in this 3,500-square-foot hilltop villa on St. Martin's southwest coast. In the master bedroom, an antique Tibetan treasure chest sits opposite a handcrafted armoire from Java, surrounded by Chinese artwork and illuminated by Moroccan lamps. The airy poolside living, dining, and lounge areas offer a rare panorama of Simpson Bay Lagoon, the Caribbean Sea, and the mountains dividing the French and Dutch sides of the island. The view is best appreciated from the sleek, angled swimming pool, with its smooth, Indonesian river rock flooring.
