Escape the polar vortex with a trip to paradise. Jetsetters from the world over land their private jets and dock their yachts at the French West Indies island of Saint Barthélemy for a respite from winter weather, and the best heeled hurry to the boutique Hotel Saint-Barths Isle de France for rest and relaxation. Book one of the 3-bedroom, beachfront Flamands Villas for the most privacy (plus your own pool). Each 2-level space is touched by minimalist modern décor and spectacular views of Flamands Beach. Craving something more adventurous? Pop over to Gustavia, the capital, for shopping and nightlife. Then relax -- you’re in paradise.
