Island escapism on St Barths

A hop, skip and jump off the East Coast of the US sits Saint-Barthélemy, aka St Barths.

Perhaps the Caribbean’s most exclusive yet equally tranquil island, the unspoilt island has long been a favourite of the jet-set. From the iconic hotel of Eden Rock  with an illustrious guest book of glamorous greats  to the stylishly chic, island outpost of Cheval Blanc (with France's luxury powerhouse LVMH behind the scenes).

Whilst the island is firmly French, there are hints of Swedish influence most noticeable in the harbour capital of Gustavia. Add sailing, blissful sandy beaches and sunsets to the mix, and it's easy to fall for the Creole charm of St Barths.
