The Old Fort, Historic Estate is the only fully restored historic plantation in St. Vincent and the Grenadines dating back to the eighteenth-century when the French first started settling the West Indies. Set high atop Mt. Pleasant with an estate that stretches all the way down to the Caribbean Sea, it features acres of orchards and views to beat anything you would find out on the open ocean. Its lush grounds are covered in traveller’s palms, breadfruit, tamarind, banana and mango trees, surrounding one of the most beautiful pools in the world, happily slip sliding its watery way over the edge. Upon discovering the property in 1978 the owners began a lengthy restoration of the estate in the original French Colonial style, using timber from local forests and the same stone as that...Overview

Its lush grounds are covered in traveller’s palms, breadfruit, tamarind, banana and mango trees, surrounding one of the most beautiful pools in the world, happily slip sliding its watery way over the edge. Upon discovering the property in 1978 the owners began a lengthy restoration of the estate in the original French Colonial style, using timber from local forests and the same stone as that of the ruins. Over three decades it has been run as a special intimate estate with eight low-key luxury rooms, six in the reconstructed plantation house and two built within the foundation of an ancient sugar mill (which can be rented separately), whereas the property would then accommodate up to 19 comfortably. Recommended over years by numerous international media, it has been transformed into the kind of property you never would want to leave!
Description of the Historic Plantation
Long ago, in the 18th century or even earlier, the Historic Plantation was used as the main factory where crops were processed. This building has been completely rebuilt using the same local stone, which was once part of the property. It forms the centre of this beautiful undisturbed estate that consists of several comfortable and uniquely styled low-key luxury suites.
On the bottom floor, just inside two large arched doors, is the large banquet style kitchen from where the chef will prepare delicious meals using only the freshest ingredients sourced locally. Just in front of the kitchen is a large spacious lounge with a grand fireplace and then the large dining area that stretches outward towards the terrace.
An outside bar is located just above the grand pool area with various beautiful outside sitting areas & patios that surround it. From this location one can enjoy gazing at the stunning vistas that stretch out before you, across to Mustique and down all the Grenadine Islands out towards Grenada. The views are awe inspiring and span over 180 degrees overlooking both the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea. The grand pool area consists of an infinity edge and waterfall, a convenient shallow kids area, and a natural pebbled grotto with various relaxation areas. It has been partly covered by two spacious cabanas to help one relax in the shade and escape the hot Caribbean sun.
The Historic Plantation consists of numerous comfortable sitting areas, terraces and balconies that are surrounded by large beautiful gardens with their numerous species of international as well as local plants and trees. The gardens itself span over four acres, larger than all rental properties on the island, whilst the location faces East, South and West making it extremely cool and breezy. The entire estate is sized over 30 acres with trails that leads one down to a cliff that is located just above the ocean. They are ideal for nature lovers that enjoy hikes and for those that enjoy the many colours of magnificent sunsets.
Description of the Sugar House (additional accommodation)
This new grand property is set within the historic sugar mill, which used to be in operation hundreds of years ago. It is only a short distance from the Historic Plantation all forming a part of the same grand estate. It has two beautiful suites, which combine the many historic elements together with modern living. It also has its own custom built kitchen / bar which sits in the middle of a large round open-concept living area with a large dining table, daybed and sitting area. Plus

At first glance, Bequia may seem remote and difficult to get to but do not let this deter you from visiting this wonderful island. There are several international airports throughout the Caribbean that serve as “gateways”, from where you can then connect with a local carrier to St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Some of the major international airports include Barbados, St. Lucia, Grenada, Trinidad and Martinique, all offering daily flights to St. Vincent from where you can then take a ferry to Bequia. Most visitors find it more convenient to fly into Barbados' Grantley Adams International Airport, as there are also direct flight connections to Bequia. You can book either a scheduled flight or a private charter (which is a particularly attractive option for a larger group) from Barbados to Be...
