Hidden behind ancient headstone walls with magnificent panoramic vistas of the sister island of Nevis is an oasis of paradise known to many as CLAY VILLA PLANTATION HOUSE AND GARDENS. This stunning 10 acre historic property (1763), an attraction beyond the ordinary, is a true Kittitian Legacy being the only free working estate never to profit from slavery and whose family members are of the native Carib (Amerindian) people.
On a visit to Clay Villa, you will experience a truly amazing offering of eco friendly gardens full of beautiful, fragrant, lush, tropical plants, fruits and wildlife. The unmatched magical charm of the natural ''green'' gardens makes you want to linger and ponder about plantation life of bygone times and travel back into the fantasies of your mind.
A tour of the family museum and the original Overseer's House (still a family home) with its many collections of worldly and local treasures and a loving and thoughtful juxtaposition of the ancient and modern leaves you with a feeling of absolute pleasure and a most memorable experience of St. Kitts' Best Kept Secret.
We sincerely thank all of our guests for their continued support as the majority of our profits from tours go to help many good causes on the island including much needed animal/wildlife welfare.
Best Regards to All
Philip and Bridget
