    The prices are breath taking. We've been to the one in Paris and that was a bargain in comparison. Not sure how many thousand dollar dinners for two I will be having there.

    Re: WV AJM? or other Villa Recommendations

    If you want a traditional style 3 bedroom in Lurin, O Pure is a nice spot. Nice view over St Jean. Private pool. Was good for my family when the kids were young.
