We are a new off - the - grid eco retreat situated only 10km from the pretty town of De Rust in the
Western Cape. The resort is set in natural Klein Karoo veldt with stunning views from the decks of our mountain chalets.
The pastoral, green Middelplaas valley is in front, the Red Stone Hills to the right and the inspiring Swartberg behind.
So weary traveller, visit us and wind down. Do as the tortoise does – wind down slowly.

The latest additions to our facilities are eco wood-fired hot tubs. They are in the bush and private to The Angulate and Hinge-back chalets. Perfect for a cold winters night while star gazing with a glass of wine, or as a cool splash pool in the summer.

Great views of the sunset and sunrise. Inspirational use of the land and scenic on all sides. Perfect secure getaway for the Dog and cozy accommodation meant for relaxation. The working farm life not far off in the distance, blends in with the rugged beauty of the Swartberg area.
Superb. 5 out of 5
