It was in the late 1800's Leon Victor emigrated from Basse Terre on the Island of Guadeloupe on his way to Venezuela. Here he stopped in Vistabella, San Fernando, where he acquired several parcels of land on which he built two houses.
He brought with him his knowledge from the islands, love of nature and thus planted the Balata Tree and several other garden species found in Guadeloupe and neighbouring islands. This tree, the surrounding gardens and this house are what survives of his legacy.
Nestled beneath the San Fernando Hill with spectacular views, a historic “San Fernando house " fully refurbished; totally air conditioned, all new features still retaining character feel.
