Born in 1989, Alexandre Peter is a native of the island, he has the Saints origins of his father, St-Barth and Guadeloupe of his mother. The Peter’s come from a long line of fishermen. Some have been professional fishermen while others still go to sea in their small boats as soon as a day of rest leaves them free to do so. His generation is more oriented towards aviation and art. It is through this family environment that he discovers his passion for photography and image.

Like many enthusiasts, Alexandre is a self-taught person who tests different shooting options and explores all aspects of photography, which has become a second profession for him.

Like many enthusiasts, he is first and foremost an amateur photographer. But one day he was on a boat to follow the Saint Barth Bucket Regatta. Rather than admire the spectacle of these giants of the seas, he prefers to capture the moment with his compact case. When he gets back ashore, at the end of that sunny day in March 2011, he has only one desire, to prolong these magical moments. A few months later, he bought a reflex camera, which was essential for those who wanted to learn the trade. He quickly tried his hand at the island’s landscapes, reworking them on the computer to enhance their colours while erasing imperfections. Very quickly, he diversified and photographed nature, landscapes, models, events, architecture, weddings, portraits…

Monique Turbé grew up in a family of five children. Before becoming a respected hotelier, her father, Guy Turbé, was one of the first contractors on the Island. At the age of 18, Monique Turbé started her first construction, like her father, the “White Sand Beach Cottages, in Flamands. This property attracted prestigious guests, like Jackie Kennedy-Onassis and her son John-John, or Roman Polanski. In 2013, the Villa Mélissa was sold to a Venezuelan couple that fell in love with the property. Monique then decided to buy and renovate a new property that she called like her granddaughter: the “Villa Lenalee”. With this new property, Monique Turbé, created MY VILLA IN ST- BARTH, an exclusive concierge service dedicated to her two private villas. One of Guy Turbé’s last dreams was to see Monique create her own real estate company to look after the villas he had built and carry on the legacy. As an homage to her beloved father, she became the founder, chairman and partner of MY VILLA IN ST BARTH Real Estate, the first real estate agency founded by a St-Barths native and a villas owner.
