Villa in Gustavia, which is both colonial and modern, offering an incredible view of the sea: Welcome to Villa Danielle. This brand new property possesses two architectural styles, seemingly opposing in appearance and yet complementing one another in both form and style. From the front, the villa evokes a West Indies colonial spirit, with traditional Caribbean balconies on the first floor and Italian wooden louvered shutters. The entrance hall is spectacular with a unique contemporary Sicis mosaic floor, an impressive Spiridon chandelier, and elegant black-and-white photographs of St. Barthelemy's flora. The mood has been set. Through the entrance hall and across the patio, the radical modernity of Villa Danielle becomes suddenly apparent: sleek geometric lines and the innovative architectural touch of the very first roof terraces in Gustavia. These vantage points permit clear sea views from the three bedrooms on the first floor and fully integrate this house into its natural environment. Italian design reigns in the decor: an armchair in the form of a rose petal by Giovannetti, white leather Serico stools, Penta and Déluce lamps, a Cyrus coffee table and the Zazzeri plumbing fixtures. Unique paintings created for the villa by the artist Dominique Legrand adorn the walls. Fabrics by Missoni lend strong color harmonies to the decor in the bedrooms: golden yellow, red, black and white, grey and celadon green. Everything aspect of design down to the most subtle touches has been created or selected exclusively for this house. Throughout there is no discontinuity, every visual nuance melds and blends into an artistically complete approach: the ultimate refinement of every detail. The same attention to detail applies in regard to the bathrooms, which themselves are absolute works of art with wonderful mosaics reminiscent of the style of the Caribbean but redefined in a stunningly beautiful and totally modern way. The two pools are also examples of spectacular craftsmanship: their mosaics convey a dream-like vision of the seabed. Located in the heart of the town of Gustavia, Villa Danielle has succeeded in its aspiration to offer freshness, absolute calm, a spectacular view of the sea, and of course a vista on the most beautiful sunsets St. Barth can offer.
Gustavia is the main town and capital of the island of Saint Barthelemy. Red roofed buildings speckle the lush tropical landscape in capital and the historic sites can be reached in one day of trekking around town. 17th century forts line the harbor, from Fort Karl in the north to Fort Gustaf with its lighthouse and cannons in the south. Near Fort Gustaf is the popular Shell Beach, where beachcombers rove for sparkling shells. The town's many duty-free boutiques call to shoppers while cozy cafes offer views over the harbor.
