Lovingly rebuilt after a 1995 fire destroyed everything but the thick flint-and-stone walls of this 300-year-old great house, Sunbury offers an elegant glimpse of the 18th and 19th centuries on a Barbadian sugar estate. Period furniture, old prints, and a collection of horse-drawn carriages lend an air of authenticity. A buffet luncheon is served daily in the courtyard for $32.50 per person. A five-course candlelight dinner is served ($100 per person, reservations required)
two nights a week at the 200-year-old mahogany dining table in the Sunbury dining room.

Sunbury is a lovely plantation house with a wealth of furnishings and artifacts. Francia probably has a prettier house and grounds, but Sunbury offers far more to look at. As it is included on many of the island tours, it is fairly easy to visit.
