One-Off Feature

The Old Fort is the only fully restored historic plantation in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, dating back to the 18th-Century. It is ideal for couples and groups that are seeking something different to the ordinary, those that want utmost relaxation and tranquility in a magnificent location.  The Historic Plantation house can sleep 15.  If you need more space, the newly converted Sugar House can sleep an additional four.

General Info

Extremely private yet only minutes away from the best beaches, we are proud to offer a hard-to-find classical ambiance in a beautiful natural setting. The Old Fort has a breath-taking location on the top of a large undisturbed estate that stretches from several hillsides all the way down to the sea. Spectacular views overlook the ocean horizon and the numerous eastern and southern Grenadine Islands. Not only can one see Bequia's close neighbour, the chic sister island Mustique, but on a clear day also distant Grenada, which lies over 50 miles away. The Old Fort`’s property interiors have all been charmingly decorated, with large spacious suites and rooms, all possessing their own character and flair. Numerous indoor and outdoor sitting areas allows one to enjoy lush tropical gardens and the amazing views to the fullest! Several trails lead through the estate where one can discover many colourful birds, island tortoises, and bright green-coloured iguanas.

The Area Surrounding The Property / Accommodation

The Windward Islands, especially the tiny Grenadines, are esteemed to be one of the most beautiful holiday areas in the world. There are masses of beautiful beaches to visit, lots of watersports, snorkelling, SCUBA diving, sport fishing and yacht charters, as well as some interesting shopping in the boutiques and craft studios around town.

Getting There & Local Amenities

Getting There:
Bequia can be easily reached from Europe, USA, and Canada. Five major Caribbean gateways offer hassle-free access to the island via air: Barbados, St Lucia, Martinique, Grenada and Trinidad. We recommend Barbados as it provides more daily connecting flights to Bequia and St. Vincent than any other gateway airport. A popular route includes a flight into St. Vincent via any of the major Caribbean islands, followed by a short ferry ride to Bequia. We would recommend you to fly directly into Bequia on SVG Air or Mustique Airways, who offer daily flight services to and from the island. Our property is centrally located and is less than 10 minutes from the best beaches, 10 minutes from Port Elizabeth, and 15 minutes from the Bequia Airport.
