Now Christie's International Real Estate has listed another impressive property on the island, Villa La Plage, for about $43 million.
Recently completely renovated, the magnificent villa, designed in the Caribbean style, sits on nearly an acre directly on the beautiful beach of Lorient, offering breathtaking ocean views. The light, airy villa has five bedrooms, each with en suite baths, private terraces and home cinema systems.
The spacious living area features slate flooring throughout. In the center of the villa, a Jacuzzi and cocktail bar add to the aura of complete extravagance and provide the ideal place to relax and unwind. The outdoor space features a stunning curved swimming pool, flanked by coconut palms and decked terraces, overlooking the beach. The property also has a two-bedroom, two-bath caretaker's compound that can also serve as a guest house. For more information, visit ChristiesRealEstate.com.
