Villas at Le Sereno

I think I've got it pretty good as a food, wine and travel writer. I get to go out to tons of nice meals, try some amazing wines from around the world, and learn all about interesting travel experiences and awesome hotels. Every so often, though, I get an assignment that makes me realize how much I'm missing.

Case in point: the new Christian Liaigre-designed villas at Le Sereno resort on St. Barth's (yes, with an "h"), that you can buy for $10 million, or rent out for a mere $20,000/day (more like $5,000 in low season).

Personally, I'd rather send a kid to college for a year than drop the cash on a villa for a day, but hey, if you've earned the money, you can spend it on whatever you want.
