Villa Zen is a unique luxury villa where harmony reigns. As a Swiss guest said: “this luxury house has a soul and is so welcoming as if it was happy to see people in it.” As soon as you walk through the gate, you feel a true serenity. The crystal-clear water of a majestic fountain flows over a black stone Buda and its lapping accompanies the song of the tropical birds. On the right, a red wooden Balinese gazebo adds an Asiatic touch to the entrance. On the left, a frangipani tree fills the air with its heady smell and borders a bungalow that offers a Mezzanine bedroom with 160-cm bed and on the ground floor, a sofa convertible into 2 x 90-cm beds. A waxed concrete bathroom, a dressing room and a living room furnished with large sideboard a solid teak coffee table complete the equipment. When you walk through the double front door of Villa Zen, you will be breath-taken by the view of the living room with golden merbau wooden floor and by the terrace, the turquoise infinity pool, the Caribbean Sea and Marie-Galante in the distance. The open-plan kitchen on the left has all the necessary elements for an enthusiastic cook and is refined as desired by the owner.
From here, the guest enjoys views over the terrace/dining area with solid teak table for 10 guests, the salt-treated pool, the Spa, Les Saintes and Basse-Terre in the distance but also glimpses the living room through the bar. The living room on the right is equipped with a huge 60” 3D television with Bose sound system, an Apple TV box, a Canal + box with hard drive and an Internet router offering free calls towards 70 countries as well as in France (landline phone). A corridor decorated by 2 statues that we brought back from Bali gives access to the sleeping area of the villa. On the ground floor, the master bedroom, which is over 50 m², has a 2-m wide solid teak bed decorated with a white mosquito net in the Balinese style.
The owner had some requirements that have been respected: lying in the morning, he wanted to be able to see the Jacuzzi and the pool as well as the antique Buda brought back from Java and Marie-Galante in the distance through the 2 large pocket doors. A suar desk and 2 teak chests of drawers furnish the room. Walls are decorated, at the rear of the canopy, with a huge wrought iron sun coming from Haiti and with a painting from Vietnam. The bathroom with double entrance has a black terrazzo tiled shower and a white double vanity unit on a teak unit for washing. There are only Grohe bathroom fittings in the villa. The back wall consists of teak cupboards. On the first floor, there are 2 bedrooms. On the right, the pink one has a 160-cm bed, a 2-m round pink mosquito net, a teak desk, a storage wardrobe and teak cupboards that cover the back wall. A bathroom with waxed concrete walls offers complete privacy. The blue bedroom on the left is furnished in the same way but the mosquito net is, of course, blue. Thanks to their altitude, both bedrooms offer breath-taking panoramic views and it is a great pleasure to laze around the big balcony that connect them.
Outside, on the same level as the living area, a 170-m² deck welcomes 4 comfortable sunbeds for sunbathing around the infinity pool and a shower gives you the opportunity to remove the salt and sand of the beach. On the left side, a “carbet” shelters white garden furniture with red Sunbrella cushions. It is the ideal place for an aperitif at night when the sunset illuminates the sky above the Soufrière. On the right of the pool, there is a Spa for relaxing in a warm water whirlpool after a beach day. All around, there is a lush garden with many adenium and tiaré flowers, palm trees, jasmine, etc. that forms a tropical setting. At night, all the buildings are lit with changing colours thanks to a unique system in Guadeloupe that gives the villa an unreal aspect. Villa Zen has a direct access to the deck equipped with a shower.
Very close, you can reach on foot the very beautiful Le Helleux Beach with rollers where many surfers come sliding and indulging the pleasures of surfing. Within a 30-minute walk through the woods and on the other side of the hill, the great Bois-Jolan Beach will seduce you with its coral reef that contains all the shades of blue and emerald-green, its coconut trees leaning over the coral white sand and its views of the mountains of Basse-Terre. If you choose Villa Zen, dream holidays are guaranteed. Villa Zen is classified as 5-star touristic furnished accommodation.
