Know Before You Go...

What could be better than a Caribbean vacation? A Caribbean vacation in a castle. Azzurra Castle is just the place for families or up to four couples to vacation together. There are six air-conditioned bedrooms, including a master loft with a seven by seven foot bed, each with an en-suite bathroom. The villa is located on a sheltered cove, and has a beach for guests to enjoy. There is golf, tennis, and water sports all within a short drive. The dining room is large enough to accommodate twelve people comfortably, and the villa has a housekeeper, and a laundry is available for guests.

Azzurra Castle's 6-bedroom, 6 ½-bathroom residence oozes Caribbean cool. This Moorish-style villa sits right on its own private shore with ocean views and turquoise waters. And, of course, no Castle comes without a folly, which in this case is your turreted getaway in the gardens. A maximum of 12 guests, including children, can be accommodated.

A keyhole gate ushers guests into the main courtyard's three living areas spread with oversized cushions and accented with antiques, marble, wrought-iron pieces, colorful mosaic tiling, ottomans, a bar, a kitchen, dining area, and smoking room beyond. Thick archways, columns, crenellated walls and turrets, and Moroccan accessories add to Azurra Castle's centuries-old look; this setting is softened by curves, private nooks, night-lighting, and stone washed in earthy hues. But its palette of colors and well-positioned site, constantly drawing in cool breezes, is very Caribbean.

A large archway opens to an ornamental stairway system which takes you down to the lower level and to the pool and sun deck flanked by two bedroom/bath suites on each side. Three air-conditioned queen bedroom/bath garden suites and an air-conditioned master suite all face the pool area. The huge bi-level master suite has a king bed, a bath with custom features, and its own sitting room and private patio deck.

Another walkway leads to the unique subterranean den which is available for meetings and as a private cinema. Down by the sea is The Folly, a three-story circular tower with its own courtyard by the sea. This private area offers a private bed/bath suite on its upper level with an over-sized bed, a bar, and its own kitchen, roof terrace, and BBQ area for entertaining. A spiral staircase leads down to the lower level where two small single beds can accommodate two additional guests (no bath).
