Clifton Hall is one of Barbados’ oldest, largest and grandest great houses. Its fascinating history as a plantation begins in 1656 with its first known owner, Ferdinand Paleologus. A direct descendent of Constantine, the last Byzantine (Greek) Emperor, Paleologus is buried nearby at St. John’s church. Clifton Hall appears in Robert Schomburgk’s 1848 classic, ‘The History of Barbados,’ and its large and stately residence has been chronicled in such publications as ‘Historic Houses of Barbados,’ Country Life Magazine, Maco Caribbean Living, and The Spectator. Hundreds of people visited the house in 2015 and in 2014 when the Barbados National Trust featured it in their ‘Open House’ programme, describing it as a ‘gem’ of Barbados. This treasure was recently rescued from ruination by owners wh...Clifton Hall is one of Barbados’ oldest, largest and grandest great houses.

This treasure was recently rescued from ruination by owners who have stylishly transformed the house for modern living and yet retained its historical character. Imagine what it was like to live in the 1600s but still enjoying the comforts of today. The living space is 13500 square feet including formal dining room with mahogany table holds 18 people, formal lounge, grand hallway, kitchen , TV room, outside patio, pool, 3 acres of beautiful gardens with mango trees and many others. Watch the monkeys as they pass the lawns in search of the fruit trees. relax and enjoy in a wonderful peaceful setting.
