Marie

One of the original owners of the property, along with her late husband Jean-François, Marie was so inspired by Aaron and Adam’s vision for a Blue Osa, she remains the ‘mother’ of the Blue Osa family several years later.

Born in Algeria and raised in the beach town of Biarritz in the south of France by a French mother and Italian father, Marie is a self-taught chef. She honed her culinary skills when her husband operated a stylish French bistro in San Francisco, and later an elegant French restaurant in Cartagena, Colombia.

Mindful of guests’ health and dietary needs, Marie’s dishes are vegetarian-oriented and crafted from what local vegetables are available from Blue Osa’s organic garden and the local farmers. Meals are served family-style. Click here to read more about the food.
