Le Rocher is a private oasis within one of the exclusive gated communities of Terres Basses, on the French side of St-Martin. High on a hill, the setting, with its manicured grounds and view, is spectacular. The entrance is set in a tropical garden with tall palms and colorful plantings. Stone walkways lead up to the picturesque entrance reminiscent of Mediterranean estates. A beautiful carved door, in an enclosed courtyard, leads you into the villa and its panoramic views. The villa overlooks almost 360 degrees of St-Martin. The full expanse of Simpsons Bay Lagoon, the Caribbean Sea, the beautiful green island mountains and the outer islands of Saba, St. Eustatius, St. Kitts & Nevis spread before you like a magnificent painting. From sunrise to sunset, it is breathtaking.

Beautiful arched windows, high vaulted ceilings and built-in banquettes create an old world Caribbean charm. Comfortable furnishings define the dining and lounging areas throughout the open plan. Interesting textures, patterns and colors in soft grey and blue, gold and cream accent the dark woods. Collectables and object d’art complement the décor. The interior spaces and covered loggias flow seamlessly with the exterior. A French country style professional kitchen opens to the view and the tropical breezes. It is an inviting place to enjoy the efforts of a private chef.
