Wir haben unseren Urlaub im Mai auf diesem wunderschönen Anwesen in der Nähe von Port Antonio verbracht. Die Anreise verlief unkompliziert da ein Transport und direkt zu Norse Hill gebracht hat. Das Haus ist sehr groß und weitläufig, gerade die offene Atmosphäre machen es besonders. Morgens bietet sich ein Frühstück mit Blick auf das Wasser an, danach eine Runde schwimmen...

How to get there
Port Antonio is reached by car from Kingston airport - we send the car and driver for you - or you can also take a helicopter direct from the airport to the small Port Antonio airport (during daylight hours). There are two options for the drive. One is winding through the hills behind Kingston, which gives you a close-up look at the way of life in the small villages you pass through before coming out to the other side of the island and driving down the coast into Port Antonio. A few more minutes, and you are at Norse Hill Estate. The chef will be ready with your welcoming cocktail.
Arrival at Montego Bay airport is a second option. The drive to Port Antonio is a little longer but the coastal scenery is superb.
