Typically chic and sophisticated, the French Caribbean has a notably Mediterranean feel to it, which is particularly evident in St Barths and St Martin.
A hideaway for the rich and famous, these islands are secluded, private and set back from the main tourist trail, yet offer the highest standards of hospitality at a selection of exquisite boutique hotels, plus glamorous shopping and exceptional fine dining restaurants. St Barths, the smaller island, boasts glorious beaches and coves. Gustavia, the harbour-side capital, is home to stylish pavement cafés, gourmet restaurants and a bustling yachting marina. St Martin is a cosmopolitan half Dutch, half French settlement with a distinctive ambience. Visit historic Fort Louis or experience an exciting climb to Pic Paradis, the highest point on the island. Both islands are decorated with wonderful beaches and are great destinations for watersports. French in style throughout, an inimitable, delicate and continental stroke of culinary magic is apparent here, from buttery croissants and brioche to delectable cheeses, fresh oysters and foie gras, flown in daily from France – a true foodie's paradise.
