Grapetree Bay, St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands
Welcome to Bella Sera (Beautiful Evening). You have just internet surfed to one of the Caribbean's loveliest villas, picture perfect for a family vacation.

The owners chose to build this luxurious 6,000 square foot villa on scenic Grapetree Point after traveling throughout the Caribbean to virtually every island. Just up the hill from Bella Sera is the Contessa Nadia D'Navarro's spectacular castle, and, indeed, this quiet scenic locale, on the east end of this Virgin Island, is enjoyed only by a special few.

Bella Sera is lushly landscaped with palms and tropical flowers, wonderful scents complemented with the sound of the turquoise Caribbean waves rolling in below . Spend languorous days relaxing in the plentiful shaded or sunny sitting areas, with plenty of softly cushioned furniture to accommodate your every mood.
