Seeking an escape from the tourist crowds of the Caribbean? On the charming, secluded island of Bequia, there is a place you can truly call your own. The Old Fort brings the laid-back character of the West Indies to a restored, French-style plantation house that dates back to the early 1700s. Ideal for individuals, couples or intimate groups, this 5-bedroom retreat is tucked into 30 acres of lush tropical gardens with commanding views over the water to Mustique.
You will be enchanted by Bequia's peaceful atmosphere, colorful heritage and natural beauty. A designated marine park welcomes divers and snorkelers with a 7-mile reef, and also offers water activities such as boat excursions, fishing, windsurfing and canoing. Other exciting outdoor activities you may chose to experience could be rainforest tours, hikes to the nearby volcano, golf, aerobics and tennis. Nearby, the quaint waterfront town of Port Elizabeth entices day trippers with its inviting bars, restaurants and craft shops. Spend the morning strolling white or black sand beaches, an afternoon lazing under a coconut tree with a good book, and the evening "at home" savoring fresh barbecued fish and produce prepared with a European touch.
