The Story Unveiled
At the origin of Sibarth Real Estate, there is a man in pursuit of a certain art of living. In 1981, a sailboat dropped anchor in Gustavia harbor. After a transatlantic crossing, Christian Wattiau came ashore at long last. There, he discovered an island of pure, natural beauty, a welcoming population and a way of life that left little to be desired. In sum, an authentic and inspiring encounter that led this solitary navigator to settle once and for all on dry land.
Despite the euphoria and enthusiasm induced by his discovery, finding a home proved difficult. This quest gave rise to a sincere determination to assist in the development of Saint Barts, taking care all the while to preserve the island’s unique heritage. Tourism was clearly becoming essential to growth. While there was already a budding holiday rental market, real estate transactions were still relatively unorganized. Then, one fine day, a kind landowner granted a parcel and Sibarth Real Estate was born. Christian Wattiau, a non-native turned Saint Barth, became a major player in the development of tourism and has never failed to uphold the fundamentals of the island’s traditional culture: simplicity, respect and discretion.
Sibarth Real Estate took root and is today the undisputed authority on all real estate matters in Saint Barts, worldwide.
