Francis Ford Coppola's seaside sequel to his mountain retreat, Blancaneaux Lodge...Just beyond your private deck, the white Caribbean sands dissolve into a clear-water world of unspoiled coral reefs and pristine marine reserves. Hang a hammock among shady coconut palms and sea grape, read a book or cool down in the freshwater pool. Charming cottages of bleached thatch and native hardwoods blend effortlessly into the natural coastal surroundings. Under the towering thatched roofs, ceiling fans quietly cool the airy, spacious interiors. Each Balinese-inspired cottage has a screened veranda, artisan-crafted doorways and detailing, a luxury Japanese tub, and private walled garden. Bike, hike or take a taxi down the tip of the peninsula to the sleepy fishing village of Placencia. Snorkel or scuba dive along the barrier reef, fly fish for permit, walk the trails of the Cockscomb Jaguar Preserve, or enjoy a fascinating boat trip along the Monkey River to observe exotic birds, crocodiles and howler monkeys.
