JAMAICA - North Coast; Near Montego Bay/Round Hill
La Chanson Du Vent
sleeps up to: 8
La Chanson Du Vent is an exquisite and very private home. Designed by a noted architect, the site benefits from spectacular views day and night and the most favorable tradewinds. The east view captures the sunrise and Montego Bay ... the west view is an equally lovely vista of Round Hill, the sea and the sunset. The grounds are like a park ... plentiful with trees bearing almond, coconut, lime, avocado, orange, ackee, breadfruit, fig and papaya and adorned by brilliant hibiscus and bougainvillea. Five fountains grace the indoor gardens. From the central fountain, stone walkways lead to the Great Room, dining room, bedrooms and bar ... and the wonderful 700-square-foot verandah with its casual al fresco dining area overlooking the pool.
Interiors are beautifully designed in white on wicker, bright chintz, glass sculpture, fanciful hand-painted chandeliers and exquisite objects d'art. Floors are cut stone, terrazzo and marble. Table service is Italian, French porcelain or Wedgwood. All rooms are distinguished by a remarkable collection of original art including many Haitian oils (Bottex, Saul, etc.) and sculptures. The airy Great Room opens through 22 glass doors to the vast ocean view to the east and large pool terrace to the west. The poolside bar is always stocked with drinks. The sound system carries music throughout indoor and outdoor living areas. The excellent hard-surface tennis court is maintained perfectly. Completing this home are the lovable pets ... three sweet dogs ... who may be boarded at guests' request.
