The Retreat at Groenfontein

From R760 PPS

 

Overview

The Retreat is an old Victorian farmhouse in the lovely Groenfontein Valley conservancy, bordering on the 129.000ha Swartberg World Heritage Site and situated 20kms northeast of Calitzdorp on a scenic, winding gravel road, 59kms northwest of Oudtshoorn, and 48kms southwest of the Cango Caves, on scenic winding gravel roads, just off the magical Route 62.

This lovely home has four garden rooms in two annexes with magnificent views of the mountains, all with fireplaces, King-size beds, which can be made up as twins, the three larger with a Victorian bath and shower, the smaller with shower, all with magnificent views of the mountains, two with separate bedrooms with two single beds; while in the main house, we have four comfortable en-suite bedrooms leading onto a patio, and the lounge and dining room - each with a fireplace - lead onto the verandah overlooking the sweeping Gardens and majestic Swartberg.

Your hosts, Grant and Marie, enjoy treating guests to true Klein Karoo hospitality. The smell of fresh coffee welcomes you back from a morning walk to a hearty breakfast on the terrace, where dinner - cooked with Marie's continental flair - is also served on most summer evenings. Vegetarian and problem diets are well catered for.

The Retreat has a full liquor licence and carries a selection of the fine wines of the region.

Take a lazy afternoon stroll in the peaceful lanes of the Groenfontein Valley, stop for a swim on the rock-pool trail, enjoy energetic walks into the foothills of the Swartberg in the sparkling mountain air, or simply relax at the pool and let the peace and silence soak into your soul. You can also go swimming in the river or dam.
