Overview

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 of the ruins. Over three decades it has been run...

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 t... more
