If discovering a state of nirvana seems like just a little too much hard work, here’s an inviting shortcut. Villa Nemesia is a luxury villa on St Barths with swimming pool, fabulous sea views and a stylish design that together deliver an instant ‘aaaahhhh’ factor.
The villa itself is super-contemporary and minimalist in its design, airy and light throughout with Barcelona style loungers and square leather armchairs in fresh shades of red and white.
Each of the bedrooms has access to a private terrace, luxury en-suite and enough gadgetry to keep you entertained in the evenings, from iPod docks to flatscreen TVs and DVD players. Slip into thick, crisp cotton sheets first for maximum relaxation.
Echoing the panoramic sea view outside, water is a strong design feature of the property with its cascades and 22-metre lap pool.
But perhaps the best thing about Villa Nemesia is the way that indoors and out have been seamlessly blended. The floor-to-ceiling doors open right back, bringing the living and dining rooms out onto the terrace, where there’s more space to dine and lounge on chic furniture pieces. You hardly realise you’ve left the house until your feet are at the edge of the pool, meaning you can enjoy a true outdoor lifestyle here. And with a view like that, you’d be mad not to make the most of it.
