The elegance and charm of a luxury tropical home within the walls of a historic and stately house.

Villa Nova is one of the last remaining Great Houses of Barbados. A grand plantation house built with hand-cut coral stone in 1834 and set in 15 walled acres of tropical forest and lush gardens, it sits atop the verdant hills of the island's breathtaking East Coast.

Surrounded by sugar, banana plantations where the cane is still hand cut, the house was a home and a retreat for statesmen, royalty and the stars of stage and screen.

It recently had a multi-million dollar refurbishment and renovation to restore its grand colonial heritage,
Nina Campbell has designed its 28 suites in cool, clear linens. Villa Nova is friendly, relaxed and quiet, planter's chairs on the verandah.
The owners added several buildings to the original villa, following the same exact architecture resulting in the new blending perfectly into the historical. The main villa has several bedrooms on the second floor including the Haynes, Churchill, and Eden suites. An adjoining new section holds more suites as does a separate building just a few steps away behind a garden and fountain. Your guests can choose between a spacious Deluxe Terrace Room, or one and two bedroom suites - all with large private patios or balconies.

This would have been the perfect retreat for Howard Hughes
