ASSOULINE IN THE SPIRIT OF ST BARTHS
St. Barths is synonymous with Caribbean glamour and chic. Pamela Fiori, a regular visitor for both work and pleasure, shares the history of the island and unearths its best secrets. Through interviews with locals and regulars, many of them bold-face names, she recommends the best beaches, shows off villas with extraordinary views (and how to find the best ones to rent), and chronicles how St. Barths has become a prime spot for destination weddings.
Interviews with prominent couples who have tied the knot there reveal the logistics of planning a wedding in a locale that boasts an airport runway not for the faint-hearted. A final chapter, “Essential St. Barths,” features an extensive section on hotels, restaurants, bar, nightclubs, shops, the best and worst times to go, and popular events on location.
Dimensions: 25 x 33 cm, 80 illustrations. Hardcover with jacket.
