5 Dream Destinations This Christmas

Winter Wonderland? We'll take the beach instead

A White Christmas isn’t for everyone. For those that prefer to escape the frigid temperatures and snowy conditions, our gift to you is these five sun-kissed villas for a warm and memorable holiday season.

Le Bleu, Anguilla

Le BleuAll I want for Christmas is Le Bleu. Why? Its long dining table offers a view of the Caribbean Sea, and our chef will prepare your festive dinner so you can spend more time on your holiday tan. With the pool in front of you and the sea behind you, a drink in one hand and a book in the other, you’ll be living the dream on a lounge chair under the sizzling sun. There’s even a home theater – so bring your favorite old holiday movies and watch them for the umpteenth time because we all agree they somehow get better every year.

Belle Etoile, St. Martin

belle-etoile3For the ultimate outdoor celebration, bring your family down to a St. Martin masterpiece: Belle Etoile. The open-concept living area is the first clue that this is going to be a vacation spent in the great outdoors. When you step out you’ll find a massive chlorine-free pool surrounded by a sprawling lawn leading to the bay. The Master bedroom opens onto a terrace with an ocean view – a great place to settle to watch the kids unwrap gifts while keeping one eye on the waves. Trade your Christmas trees for palm trees this year – you won’t regret it!

Serena, St. Martin

serena2This is how the holidays are meant to be spent! Inside a gated community and offering views of the sea, this lovely mansion will have you in the right frame of mind this holiday. Sitting along the beach of Baie Rouge in St. Martin, the only ice you’ll see this vacation will be the cubes in your cold, refreshing cocktail. For any last-minute shopping, Marigot’s luxury boutiques are just a 10-minute dash from Serena. Santa can take care of the rest.

Vitti, St. Barts

VittiOh, Vitti. A true show-stopper, this property on the coast of St. Barts promises some of the most remarkable views you’ve ever seen. Private beach access is a plus, and the infinity-edge pool seems to segue right into the ocean. Each bedroom offers its own serene twist; yours may lead onto the peaceful private patio where a Buddha statue watches from the garden. Or, with open drapes you can choose to access the ocean view right from your own bed. Wherever you decide to settle, you’ll be in no rush for morning once you witness the evening sunset. At Vitti, it’s like Christmas in July – in December.
