Christian Liaigre's St. Barts Haven

Who's ready for a tropical getaway? If I could jet off to any sunny destination at a moment's notice, chances are I'd end up in St. Barts (or Mustique), where life is laid-back yet unabashedly luxurious. Seems perfectly suited to French designer Christian Liaigre who built his name on his pared-down approach to luxury.

"Liaigre has often said that true luxury boils down to three essentials: air, space & light."

Nothing is superfluous in this house which exudes precisely the three qualities above: air, space and light. While on the island, Liaigre and his family spend leisurely days swimming, playing and cooking fresh catches of the day - all outdoors. His son loves watching the pelicans and iguanas or playing with the fisherman's sons next door. Seems worth the nine-hour plane ride no?
