Fort
The Old Fort reflects plantation house roots and allows one to enjoy island living to the fullest. Once a full working sugar plantation dating back to the Middle Ages, it has been constructed with cobblestones and wood beams in the classic French-Mediterranean mansion-house style. Set in large renovated estate buildings, which have been completely rebuilt using the same stone which was once part of the property, it forms the centre of an incredible estate which offers six spacious and uniquely styled suites. This grand estate is perfect for central entertaining with separate sleeping accommodations making it ideal for family members or friends to be together whilst still enjoying enough privacy in their own space.

Once a full working sugar plantation dating back to the Middle Ages, it has been constructed with cobblestones and wood beams in the classic French-Mediterranean mansion-house style. Set in large renovated estate buildings, which have been completely rebuilt using the same stone which was once part of the property, it forms the centre of an incredible estate which offers six spacious and uniquely styled suites. This grand estate is perfect for central entertaining with separate sleeping accommodations making it ideal for family members or friends to be together whilst still enjoying enough privacy in their own space. It features a grand pool with an infinity edge waterfall, shallow kids area, natural pebbled grotto and several relaxation areas partly covered by two gazeboes for those that require shade. Within the main building is a large banquet style kitchen with a magnificent inside dining room area that turns into a magical setting at night. It includes a lounge with fireplace and an inside wine bar. Our internationally renowned kitchen draws on fresh local produce and is famous for its fantastic cuisine. There is also a round outside bar located just above the pool that offers sweeping 180 degree views overlooking the Grenadine Islands that stretch Southward into the distance. The property consists of several comfortable sitting areas, terraces and balconies which are all surrounded by numerous acres of substantial gardens and species of international as well as local plants and trees. Mt. Pleasant estate, which is over 28 acres in size, leads one from the main plantation buildings all the way down to a cliff above the ocean. This makes it ideal also for nature lovers who enjoy hikes and beautiful scenery. The Old Fort has been recommended by numerous international publications over the years, boasting an exceptional venue that can also host any special events such as a wedding or retreat. It has been transformed into the kind of property you would never want to leave!

Overall this flat/apartment was excellent. Very clean, modern, in a great location (for tube & parks). Rooms were of a good size, and the courtyard was great (and would have been used more had the weather been nicer!). There was a high chair available to...More

About the neighbourhood
Mt. Pleasant is arguably the safest and most private area on the island. Although it is extremely private, a short drive will take you to the best beaches and places with activity on the island. One could also take a beautiful hike through the estate to two unspoiled beaches which are only short distance away. The area also has what is arguably the best view on the island stretching 180 degrees over the Atlantic and Caribbean Sea, down the Grenadines to Grenada, another island country which one can see on a clear day. Fresh breezes rise up from the Atlantic below which helps keep the property free of mosquitos and cool throughout the day. Places such as these don't exist much anymore, quite simply we do not lock doors and windows at night.
Getting around
We offer a daily complimentary daily shuttle into town, or to the beach and back upon request. Many of our guests decide to hire a vehicle, however there is also a very reliable taxi service which can be called anytime and is relatively reasonable.
