168 CS D Not long after our touch- down, we arrived by taxi at Cheval Blanc St-Barth Isle de France, our home for the next three days. A high-end hotel with an impeccable pedigree, it's part of the LVMH Group, a French conglomerate whose stable includes luxury brands like Louis Vuitton, Moët & Chandon, Guerlain, Pucci and Fendi—to name just a few. Cheval Blanc offers privacy, spacious accom- modations and service tailored to the needs of a discriminating clientele. In the words of LVMH, their Maison represents the highest in the "art de vivre"—an art that would take us no time at all to appreciate. Cheval Blanc overlooks the Anse de Flamands, a sand- fringed cove on the north side of the island. The location suited us well. From there, we could easily check out the boutiques, restaurants and nightclubs in Gustavia and St. Jean (each about 10 minutes by car). When we'd had enough, we could retreat to the Maison to chill out. And chill we did. The hotel has 40 suites and villas, some on the beach, others in a garden embellished with exotic palms and an occasional strutting peacock. Our suite was a cool oasis with high, raftered ceilings 8.
