Extra Photographs

Intro Page

This bi-lingual (English and French) book takes you to a few selected islands of the West Indies: Barbados, Mustique, Bequia, Grenada, and St. Lucia - where you will explore diversified life-styles shown in a wide range of homes: From small, humble homes in fishing villages on the shores of the Caribbean, to heritage plantation houses, to fascinating designer homes, and to multi-million-dollar mansions surrounded by sumptuous tropical gardens, and also, a surprising modern boutique-hotel that defies all standards.

You are shown a fascinating sampling from the wealth of architectural styles abounding in the region.

Think of this book as an exotic storyteller, offering you an opportunity to discover hide-away heritage treasures, as well as modern wonders, all in the midst of breath-taking, ever-new beauty of nature.

Her site http://www.juliesavagelea.com and phone is: 1 (784) 455-4677
Viviane Usborne Child should be correctly: Vivian Usborne Child Chapter: Mt. Hartman Bay Estate, Grenada. Lady of the House, Rosa Lee is misspelled at one point as Rose.
