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.
