My Villa In St-Barth’s assets for your investment
Created in 2015, My Villa In St-Barth is the result of a St-Barths family’s history, marked by great ideas and real estate achievements. Inspired by Guy Turbé, one of the first builders of the island and a tourism pioneer, the agency was created by his daughter Monique Turbé whose goal was to offer a real estate catalog that would reflect both the eclecticism and the beauty of the island. A self-taught aesthete with a unique sensitivity, Monique has always been intuitively guided by her search for understanding of human nature: listening to the others, while being aware of how to guess what’s unspoken and make the realization of wishes come true, whether they are known or hidden. What’s more, as an owner of several villas on the island, and with her long building experience, Monique Turbé brings all her expertise and perfect knowledge of the real estate market of the island.

Our properties portfolio
St-Barths is a privileged destination for long-term investment. The specificity of the touristic offer which is mainly based upon seasonal rental of second homes allows owners to expect a rental profitability of their invested capital. The real estate market in St-Barthelemy is very tight, as investors demand is higher than properties for sale. Most of our latest sales were kept confidential, all the more since they were not officially for sale. The market and practices have evolved, so we personalize our approach basing it upon accurate search criteria. Therefore, we have decided to create a private and confidential listing with properties for sale that are not published on our website. Our perfect knowledge of the island and of the real estate market allows us to make tailor-made offers.

Understanding your investment project

Visiting and selecting the property

We organize visits of the selected properties, and provide all necessary information to make your choice easier.

Writing the purchase offer, and negotiating an agreement between the parties.

We submit your purchase offer to the seller/owner of the identified villa.

Signing the sales agreement

According to your needs, we can put you in touch with a list of local notaries.

Removing suspensive conditions

If your purchase proposal holds conditions to be removed, we will help you with our experience: we can advise you about lawyers, architects and financing partners.

Signing the deed of sale

You are the official owner!

Bringing your villa on the seasonal rental market

If you wish to rent your villa, we will help you in this project by bringing our expertise and experience. According to your tastes and needs, we can recommend architects and decorators to commercialize your property.

Offering a management service

A concierge service dedicated to owners is something essential: administrative management, maintenance, support with seasonal rentals. We can advise you on this important step.

Frequently asked questions
In addition to the status as an "Overseas Collectivity" with fiscal autonomy since 2007, St. Barthelemy's status regarding the Treaty on the Functioning of the EU has also evolved. Since January 1st, 2012, it has become an "Overseas Country and Territory" (OCT), located outside the customs territory of the EU. It thus benefits from a large autonomy in customs matters.
The island's privileged tax status is governed by the 2007 organic law. Thus, an individual considered to be domiciled in St. Barts for tax purposes will be subject to the provisions of the St. Barths tax code on local income, without application of the French tax system, particularly regarding income tax and wealth tax. They are not subject to VAT or other taxes, and they do not pay inheritance tax for assets located on the island and for the benefit of heirs residing in a country without inheritance tax.

Important: Persons who are not Saint-Barthelemy residents, but who are residents of France, are considered by French law to be metropolitan tax residents.
For more information, please refer to the tax code of St. Barts.
People considered as tax residents are those who have their "home" on the island or, failing that, the place of their main residence, or the center of their economic interests for 5 years, in accordance with the local tax code. Companies that are considered to be tax residents of St. Barths are those that have had their effective management headquarters there (assuming it is not the same as the statutory headquarters) for at least 5 years, or if they do not meet this 5-year condition, those that are controlled by one or more individuals who are themselves tax residents of St. Barts.
The St-Barths real estate market is a niche market, and the supply of properties for sale is far below the demand. Since the market is very tight, and products are rare, we have oriented our practice towards proposing products upon request from serious and motivated clients. The search for a property that perfectly meets your criteria sometimes requires patience and perseverance. Our team will be with you throughout your search.
It is possible to include suspensive conditions when writing your offer to purchase. If they are accepted by the seller, these conditions will be taken over by the notaries in charge of the sale. We can assist you in this process if needed. Nevertheless, this point should be put into perspective, given that the demand is international, and remains far higher than the available property offers.
