'Securely snuggled into the verdant green hillside of Bordeaux Mountain, Estate Chateau Margot is situated on Bordeaux's eastern slope, approximately 1,000 feet above sea level. Overlooking the quiet community of Coral Bay, the impressive 4 1/2 acre estate affords majestic views of St. John's East End as well as the British Virgin Islands of Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Norman and several smaller cays along the Sir Francis Drake Channel. This property is only 1½ miles from the turn off Centerline Road that leads straight down to the amazing Maho and Francis Beaches and only 3 miles from the center of Coral Bay.

Overlooking the quiet community of Coral Bay, the impressive 4 1/2 acre estate affords majestic views of St. John's East End as well as the British Virgin Islands of Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Norman and several smaller cays along the Sir Francis Drake Channel. This property is only 1½ miles from the turn off Centerline Road that leads straight down to the amazing Maho and Francis Beaches and only 3 miles from the center of Coral Bay. To reach the estate, travel 5 miles from downtown Cruz Bay, halfway through the Virgin Islands National Park, on cool tree-canopied Centerline Road. Only 3/10 of a mile after passing the historic Reef Bay Trail entrance, the road to the estate forks off just to the right of the famous Château Bordeaux restaurant complex. From there, a 1/2 mile paved drive curves around and down to the grand white gates of Chateau Margot. Chateau Margot, like its nearby neighbor Château Bordeaux, shares a name with one of the world's best wines. Margot, a red claret wine of ''truly incomparable distinction and class'', always ''well-balanced and unsurpassed by any other wine on earth'' makes an appropriate namesake for this estate. Being distinctive and classy, Chateau Margot stands out and above most other St. John properties. This villa's classic quality and exceptional superiority are impossible to deny when noticing the warmth of carved teak and mahogany woods; the lasting beauty and strength of polished granite, coral and marble tiles; and the innovative appliances, fixtures and electronics found all throughout its structure. The artistic blending of a rich regal decor, set within coolly casual curves and angles, adapted to the middle of a secluded tropical forest, gives this estate the well-balanced ''premier grand -cru'' classification that it truly deserves.' Chateau Margot can accommodate up to 14 guests as long as two of the guests are children under the age of 12 years. Additional person charges would apply. Please note that 12.5% Hotel Tax and a $1000 refundable security deposit is NOT INCLUDED in the rental rates. Minimum Stay: 7 nights Check-In: 4:00pm Check-Out: 10:00 AMMore
