Whether you've got a 2-night stop-over or a fortnight escape, this 5-star luxury estate will welcome you with a new style of hospitality that's truly different and unique: from the location ... to the buildings ... to the beautifully-appointed rooms ... to the way you're simply pampered and spoiled.

The lovely & historic Cape Dutch homestead (1801) is in itself a national monument and a hidden treasure, nestling in a secluded valley.  The sprawling grounds offer sweeping views of the panoramic countryside.  And best of all, it's walking distance to the picturesque town of Swellendam (3rd oldest in South Africa).

Kind of a fusion of African/Euro/Chinese chic, the interiors excude a stylish elegance - where modern meets ancient.

It's like discovering your own oasis of tranquility, luxury and charm ... 

The estate, with its own professional event coordinator, can be hired for intimate and luxurious weddings for a maximum of 50 guests.  English, Dutch, German & Swedish are spoken - on y comprend francais
