Overview of Fustic House

Fustic house is a stunning example of Provence-style architecture dating back to 1740.  Set on a ridge above the tame Caribbean coastline, you are located mere steps from the water. Oliver Messel redesigned the property in the late 1970s, and it retains his theatrical influences to this day.
