Overview

Paardeplaats is a paradise for nature lovers, seeking a peaceful retreat in the mountains. It is a green establishment that runs on solar power, gas and a love of nature. Four en-suite rooms, (2 double and 2 family) some with private patios, have unique views of the valley and the trout dam.

These rooms were all built on the original stone foundations of the three different mining ruins, linked with shady stone pathways, lantern lit at night. All rooms have solar powered reading lamps, unaffected by Eskom power outages.

Paardeplaats being 770ha in extent, was proclaimed as a Nature Reserve, in 1956. We have a variety of small game (oribi, grey rheebuck, mountain reed buck, duiker, klipspringers, blesbuck and often eland and kudus. There are also baboons, porcupines, honey badgers, brown hyenas, black-backed jackals, rooikatte and at times, sometimes frequently, even leopards). We boarder on the Gustav Klingbiel Nature Reserve on our western boundary.

ACTIVITIES ON OUR FARM: * The Jafrie Walking and Cycling Ramble * Fly Fishing * Birding * Fauna and Flora * Wild Flowers * Altitude Training * Star Gazing.

NOTE: If a search was made without stipulating the month of occupation the rate shown on the search results page is for the lowest cost month and the least expensive room. Where pricing is "per unit" the Average Price Per Person based on maximum occupancy is used for the price range comparison. A search made for Homes and Villas however will always be based on the full daily rate of the unit irrespective of the number of people the unit sleeps.
