10 Fun Facts about St. Barths

In honor of our new theme -- Welcome to St. Barts -  we wanted to share some interesting facts about St. Barths and its rich history.

1.The flag of St. Barths (besides the French flag colors) is composed of the Lily flower – a reminder that it belongs to France, the Maltese cross – referring to possession by the Order of Malta, the crown – symbolism of the Swedish period, and lastly the Pelican as their emblem (the Pelican which is also on the St. Martin flag, means that you would want to fly from one island to another to discover new treasures.)

2. The biodiversity of St. Barth's and the surrounding islands have: 183 different species of fish, 54 varieties of coral, and 60 types of sea sponges.

3. St. Barths was originally called “Ouanalao” by the Arawaks (original island inhabitants) in 1493. Columbus discovered St. Barths and named the island after his brother, Bartolomeo.

4. The island was discovered in 1493 by Christopher Columbus who named it for his brother Bartolomeo. St. Barthelemy was first settled by the French in 1648. In 1784, the French sold the island to Sweden, who renamed the largest town Gustavia, after the Swedish King GUSTAV III, and made it a free port; the island prospered as a trade and supply center during the colonial wars of the 18th century. France repurchased the island in 1878 and placed it under the administration of Guadeloupe. St. Barthelemy retained its free port status along with various Swedish appellations such as Swedish street and town names, and the three-crown symbol on the coat of arms.  In 2003, the populace of the island voted to secede from Guadeloupe and in 2007, the island became a French overseas collectivity.

5. French is the official language, but English is widely spoken.

6. Despite limited rain in St. Barths, there is still plenty of vegetation. The west coast is drier with shrubs and cacti, the East coast is greener with more tropical vegetation like floral species which adorn the landscape.

7. Tourism took hold in St. Barths when Rémy de Haenen, an eccentric Dutch aviator, landed his plane at what is now the airport. He later became the first hotelier and the island's mayor.

8. The island gets more than 300 sunny days a year on average.

9. The glamorous island of St Barts is one of the Caribbean's top beach destinations. Ringing the island are immaculate strips of sand and ethereal turquoise waters. The shallow reefs that encircle the island help to protect these renowned beaches, and they also provide excellent snorkeling and diving opportunities.

10. This volcanic island without any rivers forced the population to adapt to its rigors in order to here live comfortably. Fresh water in St Barts comes from a desalination plant or large cisterns built into villas and hotels to collect rainwater. Thus water is a valuable resource to be used carefully.

    My Paris

    I love Paris for more reasons than I could ever communicate in one or two blogs but I am going to try to give you a window into what I love about the City of Light, and why you should consider planning a visit.  For my first blog, I am going to give you a quick overview of what I love and some ideas for planning a visit.

    • The People -- I love the Parisian people.  They are warm and friendly.  What? Yes, it's true. Contrary to old stereotypes about the French being cold and aloof, I have always found the French to be friendly, helpful and pleasant. If you try and learn even a little of the language, you will enjoy your visit that much more, and you will bring a smile to the people you will meet.  I studied French in high school, college and later in refresher courses and it is truly a beautiful language.  
    • Quick Tips -- Good morning, good evening, please, thank you, excuse me -- they are all easy to learn and gives you an instant connection to the people you interact with. The French are measured and thoughtful, so leave your impatience at home, their pace is going to be different than yours. Food will arrive when it is ready, security is going to be tighter than what you might be used to -- bags are searched, attractions are protected, this is the new reality for international travel and you should incorporate it into your planned excursions.  Most people in Paris speak English but not everyone, write down addresses for places you want to go before getting in a taxi, always have Euro on hand in case credit cards are not accepted, and make sure your phone allows international data so you can use your GPS if needed.
    • Where to Stay, Visit & Eat -- The best way to experience Paris for moi is to go small -- stay in a boutique hotel, visit a small museum, a quaint wine bar, this is where you will interact with the people of Paris and enjoy a unique experience. It doesn't mean you can't visit all of the famous attractions, by all means go the Louvre, but incorporate smaller places as well.  The thing I hate the most about international travel is when you ask a concierge to make a reservation or recommendation for you, and they send to a place where every person there is American.  

     

    • Art, Fashion, History & Culture -- Paris has been, and continues to be the center of so much beauty.  Choosing what to visit can be overwhelming.  Pick two or three places that interest you and spend time there.  One museum, one shopping area, one place of history -- each choice can fill a whole day.  Savor it, soak it in, Paris is a place to study and feel.  The beauty of the city is stunning but it is no accident, in fact it's complete design is to be beautiful from every angle.  Stand on any bridge, in the middle of any square and you will see vistas that are unhindered by high rise buildings and are breathtaking.
    • Best People Watching/Small Hipster Hotel -- Hotel Costes; Best Small Impressionist Museum -- L'Orangerie; Best Wine Bar -- there are so many great wine bars I'm not going to pick just one -- this list is fantastic, give any of them a whirl --  https://www.theguardian.com/travel/2012/sep/16/top-10-paris-wine-bars.
    • New favorite small restaurant -- Allard by Alain Ducasse in Saint Germaine -- you will be hard pressed to find a better culinary experience anywhere, it's that good.
    • My favorite places? For shopping -- Rue Saint Honore (home of the famous store Colette), Saint Germaine de Pres (similiar to Soho in New York, there are antiques, fashion, textiles, books, restaurants and more), the Marias (like the East Village, this is where emerging art, fashion and food lives), wander up and down for hours, have lunch, buy something special.  For walking -- the Tuileries Garden  -- my favorite garden with views from the Louvre to the Arc de Triomphe; the Eiffel Tower -- of course, there is no more iconic place -- stand beside it, under it or take the elevator up; no matter where you are in relation to it, it is spectacular.  Enjoy it.  My favorite restaurant with a view of the Eiffel Tower -- Monsieur Bleu, wonderful food, great atmosphere, chic and lively.
    • Before You Go -- there are so many wonderful books on Paris, pick one or two and read up before you go.  Your experience will be so much richer for it.  For decades, Paris has been the center of so much but when you read more in depth about why, it is gripping.  Some of my favorite books -- Paris by Edward Rutherford -- this book is enormous, fact based fiction but gives so much color and history, you will feel and live Paris.  We have a vast amount of books about Paris from cookbooks to fiction and non fiction, design, art and even coloring books.  We invite you to visit our store or simply search Paris for our assortment online.

    That's it for now...more to follow soon.  Salut, lisa
