The Retreat is an old Victorian farmhouse in the lovely Groenfontein Valley conservancy, bordering on the 129.000ha Swartberg Nature Reserve 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.

This lovely home has 5 comfortable en-suite bedrooms with French doors leading onto a patio, and 2 luxury rooms in a converted weaving-shed, both with King-size beds, which can be made up as twins, the larger with a Victorian bath and shower and a magnificent view of the mountains, the smaller with shower and a view from the verandah while the lounge and dining room - each with fireplaces - lead onto the verandah overlooking the sweeping garden and majestic Swartberg. We enjoy treating guests to true Klein-Karoo hospitality with hearty breakfasts and traditional home-cooked dinners served with a continental touch. Vegetarians are welcome. We cater for problem diets. We have a full liquor licence and carry 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 at the pool and let the peace and silence soak into your soul. German, French, Swedish and Italian spoken. Children welcome.
