Overview

The Old Fort is the only fully restored historic plantation in St. Vincent & the Grenadines constructed with cobblestones and wood beams in the classic French-Mediterranean mansion-house style. It is set high on the top of Mt. Pleasant and offers sweeping views overlooking the Grenadine Islands that stretch far Southward into the distance.

The estate grounds fall down to a cliff above the ocean with its golden meadows billowing with hay and tropical breezes that flow from every corner. The kitchen draws on fresh local produce and is famous for its fantastic cuisine with the restaurant a wholly Shangri-La affair that turns into a magical setting at night. This grand intimate estate is ideal for guests seeking a relaxed laid-back atmosphere, whilst at the same time is also conveniently located only a short distance from the best beaches and activities on the island.

Lush grounds are covered by numerous species of palms and fruit trees that surround one of the most spectacular pools you will ever see framed by bougainvillea and a profusion of tropical exotica. Recommended over the years by numerous international media it has been transformed into the kind of property you would never want to leave!

The St. Vincent and the Grenadines region

To find something special, to discover the extraordinary, one has to search for it. And there, lies the secret of this island. Visitors do not just arrive in Bequia, they discover it like an amazing treasure. The Windward Islands, especially the tiny Grenadines, are renowned as one of the world's most beautiful holiday destinations. Bequia is a jewel and is situated within this chain of islands, located west of Barbados. It is part of the State of St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Bequia provides a unique atmosphere that blends total relaxation with a wealth of interesting activities. Here there are no crowds but a very special lifestyle which brings people together. Bequia welcomes visitors as part of the community and expect to be treated as a guest and friend, not just a tourist.

Mount Pleasant

While one reads all about the more visited Caribbean destinations such as the Virgin Islands, Jamaica, the Caymans, and St. Martin, it's often hard to find information about St. Vincent and the Grenadines. One reason is that St. Vincent, a bountiful island with vast coconut and banana plantations, in the past never primarily depended on tourism as a source of income, and another is that the Grenadines are remote and can only be reached by yachts or commuter airlines. As a result, these islands are the perfect haven for travellers searching for quiet, beautiful getaways surrounded in natural splendours, rather than islands full of glitzy hotels, casinos and jet loads of tourists. The romantic island of Bequia (pronounced Bek-way) was named the island of the clouds (although some now say it was named the crutch because of its shape) by the Carib Indians and has changed little with time. Due to its seclusion from the rest of the world, Bequia has built up a strong seafaring history, with age-old traditions in boat building, fishing and even whaling, being one of the few places in the world where limited whaling is still allowed by the International Whaling Commission. It has also been a sanctuary for sailors long before any other visitors discovered the Grenadines. Gold-sandy beaches, many of which disappear into coves that are excellent for sailing, scuba diving and snorkelling, encircle Bequia. The centre of the island is hilly and forested, providing a dramatic backdrop to the bays and beaches. Admiralty Bay, the island's natural harbour, is a favourite anchoring spot for yachtsmen from all over the world, and here visitors can enjoy the quaint waterfront, lined with bars, restaurants and craft shops. Isolated enough to remain relatively unspoiled, yet lively enough to be stimulating and entertaining, Bequia provides a blend of the old and new that many find perfect. On Bequia you will meet some of the friendliest people in the Caribbean that will welcome you to the island and make you feel at home immediately. It is also a great place to make new international friends from all over the world, go on a day sail, go hiking, or just "lime"under a coconut tree with your favourite beverage. Bequia's simple, unhurried lifestyle and beauty boasts a magical charm that leaves visitors wanting more.
