British sailors who landed on Barbados in the 1620s at the site of present-day Holetown on the west coast found the island uninhabited. As elsewhere in the eastern Caribbean Arawak Indians may have been annihilated by invading Caribs who are believed to have subsequently abandoned the Island. From the arrival of the first British settlers in 1627-28 until independence in 1966, Barbados was under uninterupted British control. Nevertheless Barbados always enjoyed a large measure of local autonomy. Its house of Assembly which began meeting in 1639 is the third oldest legislative body in the Western Hemisphere preceded only by Bermuda's legislature and the Virginia House of Burgesses. As the sugar industry developed into the main commercial enterprise, Barbados was divided into large plantation estates which replaced the small holdings of the early British settlers. Some of the displaced farmers relocated to British Colonies in North America. In order to work the plantations, slaves were brought from Africa; the slave trade ceased a few years before the abolition of slavery throughout the British Empire in 1834. The Vuemont development on Mount Brevitor was previously a sugar plantation. The Island is divided into 11 parishes and the city of Bridgetown for administrative purposes. There is no local government. Barbados has a constant temperature range with a welcome cooling breeze.
Speightstown, a few minutes drive away, is a charming, unspoilt town, with a selection of shops and restaurants, a fish market and PADI dive school. Vuemont, formally named The Lakes, is ideally situated with easy access to both the East and West coasts. If you are after picture postcard sandy beaches and calm azure sea the West coast offers numerous options which include Port St Charles, Mullins and further south Sandy Lane at Holetown area. If you prefer your coasts rugged, deserted and windswept, go east for a short drive to the Atlantic coast where dramatic breakers pound the deserted shore around Bathsheba. There are numerous tourist attractions within easy reach, including St Nicholas Abbey, Barbados Wildlife Reserve, Farley Hill Estate, Butterfly Flower, Harrison Cave. World class dining is available throughout the Island many good restaurants along the West coast. There are several golf courses nearby, green fees are expensive. Racing in Bridgetown, Polo at Apes Hill.
High on a ridge with unobstructed views bordered by lush gullies, gentle slopes and set amongst beautifully landscaped gardens, picturesque lakes and parkland; the development faces the West Coast of the island. This particular location benefits from a comforting gentle breeze which flows in from the East Coast reducing the temperature compared to that of the still beach resorts. Each property has it's own car parking space, allowing the village roads to be free from cluttered parked cars.
At Mount Brevitor, residential areas combine with open terraced lawns, secluded garden courtyards, water features and gazebos carefully placed in tranquil positions and lush tropical walkways. Garden vantage points have been designed to offer panoramic views across the West Coast and down through the forest gullies for all of our properties. Each villa features contemporary fixtures and fittings, built with high quality materials, the walls finished in a textured coral-stone and painted in pastel colors. Stylish ceramic floor tiles to the modern bathrooms. The clubhouse will be provided for the exclusive use of members, residents and their guests. The village will incorporate a spa, sauna, gym, jogging paths, tennis courts, picnic areas, children playground and swimming pools; there are many focal points for a vibrant social life at Vuemont.
Mount Brevitor lies close to Mile and a Quarter and some two miles inland from Speightstown, an old Barbados seaport steeped in rich colonial history.
