Area Information:

The little country town of Parys lies on the southern banks of the Vaal River about an hour’s drive from Johannesburg. Disputably named after its European counterpart on the banks of the Seine, what makes Parys interesting to visit is that it is situated within the Vredefort Dome Area - the place of the oldest and largest meteorite impact site in the world.

Parys is essentially a farming community - tobacco, corn, sorghum and cattle are all farmed in the vicinity - but it has also become a popular town to visit, particularly because of its proximity to Johannesburg. Where the Vaal River meets the town, it stretches for about a kilometre, its shores lined with weeping willows and an invitation to those fond of water sports. The country club, with its 9-hole golf course, lies on Golf Island, one of the islands that sprinkles the waters of the river close to Parys and accessible via a suspension bridge.

There are some lovely hiking trails in and around the town up in the hilly countryside that surrounds Parys; the town is scattered with art, antique and coffee shops, and you can do river rafting, abseiling and 4x4 routes as part of the line up of activities available to you. But it’s the geological wonders of the Vredefort Dome that are without doubt the stars of the show.

The dome lies around the towns of Parys and Vredefort - the focus of a great deal of geological and geophysical attention and about 250 kilometres across. It’s also recently been declared South Africa’s 7th World Heritage Site. The reason for the visit, if for nothing else, is the stupendous view from the top of the prominent mountains overlooking the dome bergland. The meteorite impact structure is a semi-circular ring of mountains surrounding a less rugged interior of an impact that took place some 2 000 million years ago.

Property Facilities:

Guests will have adequate privacy in the house and the tranquility of the beautiful garden.
For peace of mind, safe parking is provided on the premises within the fenced off area, with remote control gates and all night lighting.

Very quaint and quiet Guest House and is in easy walking distance to the shops and restaurants. Donny was very helpful with our restaurant bookings. All the lovely guest rooms are of a different decor which will make each visit a little more interesting. If you love antiques and art, À la Maison is the place to stay.
