The time for a summer escape has arrived ! Though travel might be limited now, Haute Victoire and its founder Yasmina return to their retreat in St Barth, with its sources of inspiration, beautiful beaches and laidback lifestyle.
Follow us, we are taking you for a tour around the island.
A La Plage !
The Anse de Gouverneur is my favorite beach on the island ! The dunes of Gouverneur are richly luxuriante and the turquoise sea is ideal for a sportif long swim.
Get ready for a 20 minute promenade to the Anse de Colombier, though a yacht can take you there with less effort, you arrive at the most secluded and magical beach of the island. At the far corner of the Anse lies the Rockefeller's incredible modernist maison built in the 70's before St Barth was known as a luxury vacation escape.
Déjeuner au Soleil
Déjeuner at the hotel de Toiny will take you down a steep hill on a fancy Land Rover shuttle to deposit you on a plage privé where lunch under straw roofs is a sublime treat. Bring your surf board !
If you are in the mood for drinks, food and music head to Shell Beach, the hot spot on the island. Shellona restaurant with its chic Mediterranean atmosphere attracts an international clientele and it's THE place for a beautiful coucher de soleil...
For the aperitif I love Le bar de L'Oubli right on the port of Gustavia. Opened in the early 80's by a Parisian man famous for his clubs, he named his bar L'Oubli, Oblivion, as he was trying to forget Paris while in St Barth !
The Villa Marie located in Colombier is an authentic experience of the local Antilles style. For a drink head to the rhum-and-cigar-bar and enjoy a refreshing tropical punch.
For dinner I head to La Guérite for a French music evening and délicieux meal; you are transported to the South of France for a fun soirée.
