Architects, Mauricio Lanari of Le West Indies and Francois Jaulino of Architectural Concept combined their talent to create the first villa which captures the
Caribbean lifestyle and French sensibility while still complimenting the
Mediterranean architecture of the award winning La Samanna hotel.
Drawing on the palate of colors provided by the sunsets and views from the villa’s terrace, rooms feature a colorful explosion in the patterned linen draperies
complimented with soft warm background colors of straw, peach and azure blue in the upholstery. The Living space features quilted linen sofas - long and low,
perfect for lounging with a golden honed stone and iron cocktail table anchoring the space.
A “found” twisted twig table and an 18th century French iron mirrored console add a European influence to the space that fits well with the islands French history. The dining room in particular, showcases a 19th century Parisian carved oak buffet paired with a sleek stone and glass topped dining table, and traditional carved
dining chairs. The focal point of the room is an original art piece by Carol Mann floating between glass. The three guest rooms each offering their own distinct retreat and reflect the playful, relaxed mood of St Martin with use of splashy
colors in lemon, avocado, and aqua. The use of soft flowing linens and nubby
cottons paired with wood and iron furnishings add to the relaxed ambiance.
Expansive outdoor terraces, arched doorways and windows, oversized bathrooms, a private free-form pool, granite finishes and 21-foot ceilings are a few of the signature elements.
The 37 square mile island of Saint Martin/Sint Maarten is one island with two nations. For visitors this means a true multi-cultural experience where
numerous languages are spoken, the cuisine is outstanding and the hospitality refined.
The cliffside development is ideally situated just 15 minutes from Marigot, the capital of French St. Martin in the French West Indies and a short drive from the fabulous restaurants of Grand Case.
