    Because of its Caribbean location, weather in St. Barts tends to be on the tropical side, with an average temperature of 20º to 30º Celsius (68º to 86º Fahrenheit) through the year.

    Our Island, Our Home
    St. Barts island was originally called “Ouanalao” by the Caribs Tribe, who lived here on the arrival of Christopher Columbus in 1493. He renamed the island as St. Barthélemy, in honor of his brother Bartoloméo Columbus. By the middle of the XVII century, the French had colonized the island, but for financial & piracy reasons, the St Barts administration was traded to Sweden by the king Louis XVI in 1794. From this administration by the Sweden kingdom comes the name of the capital of St Barts, Gustavia, as the architectural influence and many of the street names. The island was sold back to France in 1877 and has remained under French administration. That is why the official language in St Barts is French, and the currency is the Euro.

    The island of St. Barth is located in the northeast of the Caribbean Sea, 35 km from the island of Saint Maarten and 240 km from Puerto Rico, you can reach St. Barth by air and by sea. The port of Gustavia is witness to the arrival of ships of all sizes, as well as the ferries to cross from Saint Maarten to St Barts proud to have crossed the sea. The Gustaf III / Rémy de Haenen Airport (SBH) has a small airstrip that is an experience in itself. Because of its size, it can only receive small planes of no more than 20 passengers. To get to St Barth by air, the option is to fly to one of Saint Maarten´s two commercial airports (Princess Juliana or L´Espérance Airport) and from there take a flight of no more than 15 minutes to St Barth. Plane transfers are also available from several islands of the Caribbean as Puerto Rico and Antigua. You can also take a ferry from Saint Maarten to the port of Gustavia. If you need more information, do not hesitate to contact the Le Barth Villa Rental Team, and we will be happy to help you.

    St Barts has a total area of 14 square miles, the distances between the different points of the island may seem very short, but it is more than advisable to rent a car in St Barts or get around by taxi. The surface of the island is full of hills which makes the walks heavy, and the tropical climate of St Barts makes it too hot to walk for more than 300 feet. Le Barth Villa Rental has for you a shuttle service to your villa on your arrival and departure from the villa, and if you wish you can always approach our Concierge to orient you on a car rental service in St Barts.
