Anguilla and St Barths may seem like they are miles apart but, like siblings, they share the same deliciously straightforward ease of living deep in their DNA. Anguilla encourages one to cast aside their concept of schedules and worries and embrace sleepy villages, chilled out locals and a pioneering food scene. This is a place where big names fly under the radar and life admin is abandoned in favour of unwinding on the best beaches’ in the Caribbean.
If Anguilla is the place to hide away, then St Barths is the place to be seen. Only a ten minute flight south, the ‘South France of the Caribbean’ comes alive at night. When the sun rises, charming fishing villages and pristine protected beaches coax resort dwellers to clamber behind the wheel of a Mini Cooper and explore.
A twinned visit here will awaken a dormant alter-ego travellers have never seen in themselves before.
Tucked away on the laidback island of Anguilla, this is a villa stay that is entirely your own. In a secluded spot offering space and privacy, those seeking a place to reacquaint themselves with their nearest and dearest for much needed quality time will do well to consider a stay at ÀNI Villa.
