The centerpiece of this very private estate property is an elegant 8000 square foot, six-bedroom villa filled with spacious indoor and outdoor living. Lush and colorful tropical gardens, grand entry courtyard and expansive lawns surround the house. The mood is tropical exotic and inviting with the feel of a private home in Bali.
The villa's stunning panoramic views are accented by the brilliant turquoise sea, sandy beaches, sloping mountains and the charming town of Marigot. Multi-level sitting areas for dining or relaxing, both covered and open, surround the pool to take full advantage of the variegated view from dawn to dusk. The exotic rainforest style pool, complete with waterfall, adds visual interest by day and by night via fiber optics. At pool level is the barbeque and bar plus an additional dining space.
The flow of the house creates a perfect villa for large family gathering, good friends or small corporate retreats. The interiors are serene and comfortable. The main living space features a large, open plan room with soaring ceilings, Indonesian style seating and accessories, a modern high end fully equipped kitchen plus a state of the art sound system and media facilities. Tumbled travertine floors flow throughout the interior and exterior spaces.

Neither beach is ever crowded. Baie Rouge is set amongst some dramatic red cliffs.
