ST. BARTHS -- One of the best things about travel is finding a special rate that allows you to live like royalty. St. Barths has long been an oasis of solitude for luxury travel, making it a popular destination for celebrities and jet setters from around the world.
So here's a little secret for sunworshippers who thought St. Barths was beyond their budget. Les Ilets de la Plage is offering a three-night summer package from now until July 10, 2017 for a two bedroom Garden Villa for $255 per person based on occupancy of four, or $300 per person for a one bedroom garden villa.

Rates increase on July 11 until August 31, but they are still a bargain when compared to other  elegant properties.
Among the best features of Les Ilets de la Plage is the privacy of this family owned and operated property with its stunning views of the best known and most popular beach on St. Barths, St. Jean Bay. Not far away is St. Barths north shore with its array of trendy bistros and boutiques.
St. Jean Beach is the most popular spot on the island
Les Ilets de la Plage is a tiny, understated resort featuring 11 villas on  St. Jean Beach. The four one-bedroom beachfront duplex villas feature covered terraces which open to a grassy area that spills into the sand and surf.  There are also seven hillside villas built on the slope from the beach in traditional Caribbean ranch style surrounded by gardens filled with tropical flowers and palm trees. Each villa has a view of the gardens or St. Jean Beach.

Accommodations are simply, but elegantly appointed with fully equipped kitchens, air conditioned bedrooms, sitting area, Wi-Fi, satellite television and en-suite bathrooms. A concierge is on-duty throughout the day to assist guests with other services such as rental cars, restaurant reservations, babysitting, boat charters and the like.
Best of all the three night package for a one bedroom is based upon double occupancy with a third person staying for free. Amenities include croissants, pastries and a morning newspaper delivered to the door plus a bottle of Rose.

Food can be expensive on this hilly jewel that nestles about 22 miles southeast of St. Martin, so to further reduce costs you may want to budget by shopping at local stores and taking advantage of the kitchen in the villa.
For getting around, a rental car is probably the best way to see everything, however, if beach life is your cup of tea then
Les Ilets de la Plage will more than satisfy your needs as the perpetual Caribbean sunshine makes its way across the cerulean sky.

Gustavia Harbor is a focal point of activity on St. Barths with plenty of shopping, quaint boutiques, eclectic cuisine and a bit of history to boot. Surrounded by shallow reefs, the area of St. Barths is just under 10 square miles. It is the only island in the Caribbean that is of Swedish origin, and the Three Crowns of the Swedish national arms still appear in the island's coat of arms.
Christopher Columbus was the first European to visit the island in 1493, naming it after his brother Bartolomeo. During the next century the island began to take shape under formal colonization.
St. Barths became French in 1946 with electricity coming to most of the island 15 years later in 1961. Electricity proved to be the turning point as hotels and tourism sprang up almost overnight.
In the early 1990s St. Barths boasted of two cooking schools: the St. Barts Cooking School emphasizing classical French cuisine and Cooking in Paradise which focused on creole dishes. Even today, food is one of the primary attractions to St. Barths with more than 70 restaurants of which a significant number offer gourmet specialties.

You will also find "snacks" which the French call "les snacks" or "les petits creux" that include sandwiches, pizza and salads. Even so, compared to other places in the world, "les snacks" can be pricey.

No matter. Just think of the money you saved at Les Ilets de la Plage, lay out in the sun and then splurge for one night out on the town and you have the makings of an ideal mini-vacation.

Oh, and by the way, there's a three bedroom villa as well!
