Create an itinerary including Fairview Great House & Botanical Garden
Overlooking the Caribbean Sea and dating back over 300 years, Fairview Great House & Botanical Garden is a prime example of Colonial architecture built almost completely from wood. Once the residence of a French military commander, the house functioned as a hotel during the 1960s and was finally restored to its former glory in 2008. Tour the house to learn about its history. It is accompanied by over two acres (0.8 ha) of botanical garden featuring an apiary, cobblestone central courtyard, a private chapel where you can go rum tasting, and a restaurant. Put Fairview Great House & Botanical Garden into our Challengers trip builder site to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Challengers.

  • Very interesting to learn the history of the planation and about Caribbean food. Our guide was great! Although they provided good information on plantation-driven African enslavement, I wish there...

  • I really enjoy touring plantation homes and seeing the architecture and antiques. They also have an exhibit about the history of the plantation and a large, very educational exhibit in the basement...

  • What a wonderful local experience, where the people and the food are just unique and colourful! We had the opportunity to experience a cooking demonstration of the local cuisine, do a bit of rum tasting! And danced with Tash a lovely knowledgeable guide. Island fun, quality of life and a historical journey through what was and is part of at Kitts and Nevis.
  • We did a Quad bike tour that used this as a home base. It is a shame that it is no longer a hotel. Seemed like a great place to stay, but now it is a wedding venue and a museum. Still a very nice place
