Hotel Le Village St. Barth
Set on a hill just above the town of St.-Jean, this intimate hotel, which is run by the Charneau family, has been in business since 1969. It’s another one of the island’s gems, complete with a pool, small breakfast room, and stellar location, since the beach is just a five-minute walk away. The hotel is a relative bargain, with rooms that have warm wood or tiled floors, contemporary furniture, and colorful local art or blue accent walls to preserve the Caribbean spirit. For a little more money, upgrade to a superior cottage for the wrap-around terraces with sweeping views of the Baie de St.-Jean.
