Truly a villa for the most discerning of guests and dating back to 1740, Fustic House is an exceedingly spacious and grand abode, with three separate wings, eleven acres of secluded and beautiful private gardens, a staff of fifteen and the most magnificent lagoon-style swimming pool cut out of coral stone. Set on a ridge and enjoying fabulous views of the coastline from many vantage points, this is an Oliver Messel-designed masterpiece laced with regal interiors, courtyards and stately wings adjoined to one another by lush, tropical gardens (and lawns for the complimentary croquet set). Old-world glamour, class and overwhelming style can be found in every crevice of every room, meaning the splendid Fustic House can't help but be sublime - and the Barbadian Green Monkeys think so too, as they swing bashfully across the garden. A sandy, quiet beach is just a short stroll away.
