Ebbie and Geesje welcome you to their Italian influenced home. Sweeping views of the Langeberg mountain, a large salt water pool, private cottages, each decorated in a unique style and true South African hospitality are only a few of the things guests can enjoy at Babette’s.

The name Babette’s is inspired by that lovely art film, “Babette”s Feast” and if you have seen that movie, you will know what we are about. At Babette’s we do not only serve scrumptious breakfasts, but also a picture on a plate to indulge all the senses.

The same applies to the house and cottages. Lovely old wooden beams, doors and windows, eclectic furnishings and special artworks in every room, welcome guests. Meet our friendly and loyal staff, our dogs and our children. We’re all a big family here and hope to make you feel part of it.

A private lounge/ TV room/ library is available exclusively to guests. All cottages are equipped with: private patio,separate bathroom, lounge area, bar fridge, tea tray, fans and heaters, hair dryers and sound system for those lazy sunny afternoons. We offer one cottage with self catering facilities in the evening for those who want to stay a couple of days.

Swellendam’s famous landmarks like the Museum and Dutch Reformed Church are anly only a short walk away, as are excellent reastaurants and art and craft shops. Do remember that Swellendam is a very safe town, we don’t even lock our doors at night. Once you’ve discovered ou pretty and peaceful town, you’d always want to come back.

Stay longer and visit the Robertson wine route – not as well known as the Stellenbosch wine route and therefore you can buy excellent wines at a very affordable price. Go for walks in the Merloth Nature Reserve, or visit the Bontebok park, the only one of it’s kind in SA. De Hoop Nature Reserve is by far the best place for whale watching, bird life and peace and quiet.

Interesting towns to visit close by, are Suurbraak, Barrydale and Montague via the beautiful Tradouws pass, or visit the most Southern point of Africa, while spending time in Arniston – the most beautiful beach in the world. Feel like playing a game of gholf? Don’t miss our 9 hole course nestling at the foot of the mountain – a memorable experience. Why not take a sunset cruise on the Buffeljags dam and experience the waterfall, or if you’re feeling more adventurous, enjoy all kinds of water sports in a fun way.

Convinced that Swellendam is THE place to visit? Good, you will not be disappointed.
