VENUE IN FOCUS: BARBADOS
Clifton Hall Great House is a truly special venue in Barbados and one that is steeped in history. Situated on the East Coast of Barbados in the Parish of St John, this stately home was originally built in 1656. The first known owner of the house was Ferdinand Paleologus, a direct descendent of Constantine, the last Greek Emperor. This stately home was left to ruins until recently when the new owners bought and completely restored the venue over six years!
This historic Bajan Plantation has been meticulously renovated with every aspect of the house and three acre gardens being tended to with exceptional attention to detail. The original historical character was retained while offering more contemporary elements like comfortable family areas to bring this home into modern day living. The beautifully furnished five-bedroom mansion has three wings—the stunning Caribbean Georgian structure which was renovated in the late 18th/early 19th century together with the two original medieval-style wings that date back to the mid-1600’s.Continue reading “CLIFTON HALL GREAT HOUSE”
