The Retreat At Groenfontein
Bordering on the 129.000ha Swartberg Nature Reserve, now a World Heritage Site, and situated 20kms northeast of Calitzdorp on a scenic, winding gravel road, 59kms northwest of Oudtshoorn, and 38kms southwest of the Cango caves, both half gravel, just off the magical Route 62. The Retreat is for the 3nd year running in the AA Accommodation Awards Hall of Fame after winning this prestigious award in the category 'Guest House full service' 3 years in a row! It is an old Victorian farmhouse in the lovely Groenfontein Valley conservancy. This lovely home has 4 luxury rooms in two garden annexes with spectacular views of the mountains, and 4 comfortable standard en-suite bedrooms with French doors leading onto a patio in the main house, where the lounge and dining room - each with a fireplace - lead onto the verandah overlooking the sweeping gardens and majestic Swartberg. Guests are treated to true Klein-Karoo hospitality with hearty breakfasts and traditional home-cooked dinners served with a continental touch. Vegetarians and problem diets are well catered for, the lodge has a full liquor licence and carries a selection of wines from the region. Enjoy peaceful walks along the charming lanes of the Groenfontein valley, climb into the foothills of the Swartberg, or simply relax by the pool and let the peace and silence soak into your soul. German, French, Swedish and Italian spoken. Children welcome.
