Give me a brief history of Olde Yard Village
Olde Yard Village was formerly known as Olde Yard Inn. At that time, it was an 11-room establishment with no pool, an extraordinary library and restaurant. It was and still is a condominium resort that offered the vacationer all the conveniences of a luxury hotel and also offered the comfort of spacious apartments set in a tropical garden overlooking the sea. At that time the informal poolside restaurant was in a bistro setting called La Brasserie, later on known as the Dip and Sip, Baracuda and now The Village Café.
What makes this place so special? Tell me all about the landscape, the menu, chef, staff, amenities, etc.
