Mustique, St. Vincent and the Grenadines Princess Margaret

2 of 12

This privately owned island hideaway made it to the map
because of one resident alone: Princess Margaret, Queen Elizabeth’s sister. The
land on which she built her villa was a wedding gift to her and her
photographer husband, Antony Charles Robert Armstrong-Jones, a.k.a. Lord Snowdon.
With Margaret’s royal presence in the Caribbean, aristocrats and international
tastemakers such as Mick Jagger and Tommy Hilfiger followed, and soon the three-square-mile
rock became a regal resort. The princess’s very own villa, Les Jolies Eaux,
built by theatrical set designer Oliver Messel, is available for rent. (From $18,000 per week, low season; $28,000, high season.) —Sarah Rose
