General

Tivigny House is one the finest three bedroom vacation villas in Grenada and comes complete with fabulous views of Clarke’s Court Bay, Hog Island and the ocean beyond.

Tivigny House gives the discerning visitor a luxury and peaceful retreat in a rural, ocean-side setting.

Situated on the south coast of Grenada on Clarke’s Court Bay, the villa is only 10 minutes from Grand Anse area and 15 minutes from the airport, but gives the impression of being a world away.

The house has commanding views from almost every room of Clarke’s Court Bay, Hog and Calivigny Islands, the village of Woburn and its marina, and out over the reefs to the ocean.

The accommodation at Tivigny is versatile and makes for easy living. The open plan kitchen/dining area is at the heart of the house, with views over the swimming pool and out to sea through large doors that slide right back to give an uninterrupted vista.

The sitting room, veranda and a shady gazebo for outdoor dining are all adjacent to the kitchen/diner. There are ample opportunities to relax in comfort. Large ceiling fans supplement the cooling breezes which waft throughout the house.

Windows and doors have adjustable louvres and insect screens to provide bug-free ventilation. The house is comfortably and elegantly furnished with a mixture of English soft furnishings, cane furniture, modern furniture and antiques. Colourful blinds and curtains give a tropical feel.

The pool and veranda are just a step from the living area of the house. The saline pool is fenced and gated, and sports a spectacular vanishing edge. When you are in the pool, the waterfall edge blends into the sea below you, giving the effect of swimming in the ocean.

The pool also has its own shower and a wet bar with three stools where you can enjoy your sundowners. And there is a cloakroom near the pool with an additional shower.

Behind the house is a delightful alfresco dining area, perfect for the balmy evenings outside.

Tivigny House can sleep from two to six adults, plus a child and an infant, in three air-conditioned en-suite bedrooms. The upstairs suite can be arranged as large twin beds or a king double. The downstairs suite offers a king double. Both of these suites have twin balconies, a walk-in closet, a luxury bathroom with a thermostatically controlled shower and twin basins.

The third bedroom has two 4′ 6″ beds and can additionally accommodate a cot and/or fold-up bed. This suite has a tub with a thermostatically controlled shower and is ideal
for children or those who simply prefer a bath to a shower. A door leads to a large balcony shared with the upstairs main suite. At the bottom of the driveway, a grassy footpath leads down to an attractive small black sand beach and the house’s private jetty. You can swim and snorkel from the jetty or the beach, and take a kayak out on the sheltered waters of the bay. Explore uninhabited Hog Island with its golden beach. Paddle across on a Sunday afternoon and you may well find Roger setting up his barbecue beside his rustic beach bar. These barbecues are popular with the yachts people who anchor around Hog Island. Beware of Roger’s rum punch, though!

Tivigny is also a good base for hiking and hill walking.

The housekeeper comes every weekday. All linens, including pool towels are provided. Catering, babysitting, guests’ laundry, tours and other services are available by arrangement.

Unique amongst the villas on this website is the combination of watercraft available for guests’ use, including a Hobiecat, a small outboard dinghy and a pair of single-seat ocean kayaks. The little motor boat is ideal for exploring the nearby bays, inlets and coves, or as a ‘base’ for snorkelling over the inshore reefs.

Grenada

Grenada

Grenada is a very special island. Off the well-trodden Caribbean path, it is unspoilt and not over-developed, yet remarkably refined. The beaches are fabulous and not crowded, the rainforests are havens of nature and make for great trekking, the waterfalls are fun, the stores are good, the roads are smooth (by Caribbean standards!), the restaurants are varied and excellent. The people are warm, gracious and welcoming. Grenada is one of the safest and friendliest islands you can find. Renting a villa here is one of the ultimate way to get the most from this beautiful and memorable island.

With less than 110,000 inhabitants and only 133 square miles of land, the tri island state of Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique appears almost invisible on the world map. Despite its size, the island is widely known for its abundance of spices, unspoilt beauty and friendly people.

It has often been questioned though, how an island so tiny, can possess a people with such great character and huge hearts. In 1961, when the Italian cruise liner, the Bianca C caught fire and sank, hundreds of Grenadians rushed to the aid of those onboard, feeding, sheltering and clothing them as needed. Today, a statue known as the ‘Christ of the Deep’ still stands on the Carenage in the town of St. George as an expression of gratitude for the great acts of kindness to the people of Grenada. This was not the first time Grenadians created a buzz because of humility and acts of kindness. In 2005, Lance Corporal Johnson Beharry VC; a Grenadian British Army Soldier was awarded the highest military decoration otherwise known as the Victoria Cross for saving the lives of members of his unit on two occasions. To date, he is the youngest recipient and first man to be awarded the Victoria Cross since 1982.

Sports and nature

Sports and natureScuba diving & Snorkelling
With over 30 reef and wreck sites around the island there are plenty of diving opportunities for both experienced and novices divers. Serious snorkellers may want to explore the spectacular sights of the deeper reefs, and boats run regular trips from Grand Anse to places such as Moliniere Marine Park.

Hiking
Lush mountainous interior rainforests are havens of nature and make for great trekking. Waterfalls provide stunning wild swimming opportunities.

Yacht charters
Private yacht trips can be arranged. You can choose your own itinerary and enjoy a wonderful day on the ocean with stops for snorkelling and swimming.

Turtle Watching
While in Grenada you may be able to see the Leatherback turtle or the smaller Hawksbill turtle. The season begins on 1st April and runs through to the end of June. Tours run nightly, in season.

Whales and dolphins
Go on a sea safari for the chance to see whales and dolphins – the success rate of such trips is astonishingly high.

Sea Kayaking
Appreciate the natural beauty Grenada has to offer and access places that can only be visited by kayak. Every trip is its own adventure including deserted islands, gliding amongst the coral reefs and mangroves, and seeing beautiful flora and fauna.

Cycling in Grenada
Experience Grenada by bike!  Bicycles, including mountain bikes and cruisers can be hired and bicycle tours for all levels and cycling abilities are also available.

Sport fishing
Well-organised sport fishing trips are available on a tailor-made basis to suit the client. Go in search of marlin, tuna and sail-fish.

Cricket
The brand new National Stadium is fast becoming a major cricket venue and it will play host to many major matches each year, including one-day internationals.

Nightlife

NightlifeThere are plenty of option party and relax, or as the locals say 'lime'. From small family owned bars to the larger bars and clubs in St George's where there is live entertainment at most restaurants and hotels.

Restaurants in "the Caribbean kitchen" are known for their spicy dishes, exotic fruits and the most delicious array of sea food. A culinary diversity of French, Spanish, Indian and African cooking, makes for an unforgettable dining experience.

Grenada's music nightlife is not as well known compared to other islands. However, there are a few hot spots where visitors and locals alike, can party till the early hours. Music is varied with a choice selection of Calypso and Reggae which give them that distinctive Caribbean feel.

Culture & history

Culture & historyThe names of our villages, architecture in our towns and dialect spoken throughout Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique bear reference to Grenada’s intriguing history of South American and European settlements. If you’re a traveller who likes to engage in the history of your destination as much as basking in the sun, then come and discover our journey from colonialism to democracy, which reveals a captivating course of events.

Our charming culture is an interesting fusion of old traditions and new generations. In our Carnival, influenced by African slaves and French colonisers, is the prominent presence of the Jab Molassi. Commonly referred to as ‘Jab-Jab’, revellers covered in oil march through the streets to the rhythm of their own drums, alongside the newer addition of revellers covered in colourful paint. This is a unique aspect of our Carnival and showcases the creativity in our culture. Other displays of our culture can be found in performances showcasing our folk tales and folk dances, the work of local artist and craftsman and the sounds of calypso music.

Notable attractions include the stunning Underwater Sculptures where you can combine scuba diving or snorkelling with groundbreaking art. Explore underground tunnels and breathtaking sea views at Fort George. The Belmont Estate is an authentic 17th century plantation showing workings of a fully functional historic plantation.
