About the villa

Forested slopes lead up from the sea and wrap around Fustic House, cushioning this character villa from the real world, and cossetting its guests in ten secluded acres of tropical greenery. These perfectly private strolling grounds enclose a small lake, known as the Duck Pond, and a lagoon-style swimming pool, quarried out of the coral stone and looking for all the world like a woodland spring. A path winds down to a sandy beach, about ten minutes away, and the house stands proud, high on a ridge, its colonnaded terraces framing fabulous sea views.

Elegantly furnished and imperceptibly blending indoor and outdoor living, the villa is impeccably maintained by dedicated staff and offers chef and butler service. Accommodation is divided between four buildings, the original 18th century Main House, with a library, sitting room, formal dining room, and two bedrooms; the Messel Wing with two double rooms; the Plantation cottage, whose two rooms feature outdoor showers, and the Pavilion, with a double suite and state-of-the-art home cinema. Speightstown is a ten minute drive away.

About the area

St Lucy

Average weather

The northernmost parish of Barbados, St. Lucy is known as ‘The Lady’—and is the only one of the eleven parishes named after a female saint. St. Lucy has three distinct coastlines. On the west are its sandy beaches. To the north, cliffside paths lead down to hidden coves. On Barbados holidays in St. Lucy, visit coastal lookout points on the east coast such as Paul’s Point to enjoy panoramic views of the headland. St. Lucy’s inland villages—such as Hope and Spring Garden—are surrounded by sedate pastureland.
