Marigot is the main town and capital on the French side of the Caribbean island of Saint Martin. Originally a fishing village on a swamp for which it was named, Marigot was made capital during the reign of King Louis XVI, who built Fort St. Louis on a hill near Marigot Bay. Marigot is typical of Caribbean towns, with gingerbread houses and sidewalk bistros. Market days are every Wednesday and Saturday morning, where one can find everything from coconuts, avocados, sweet potatoes and plenty of other tropical fruits and vegetables, all kinds of spices and fresh fish, to fine batik wraps, local arts, crafts and paintings.
Choose private villa that best suits your needs, from cottages to luxurious beachfront villas ranging in size, style, splendour and location on the island. Once you have set foot on St. Martin and have stayed in your own private villa with pool you will never want to vacation any other way.
