We were really only in Calvinia for an afternoon and evening. We stayed at the Calvinia Hotel and enjoyed a dip in their rooftop splash pool, which had a great view of the goings on in the street below. The town is clean and has some wonderful old buildings. We enjoyed our early evening stroll to the Blue Naartjie where we had a delicious meal. I'd like to return to explore more of the area.
Interesting small town
Calvinia is situated in the Namakwa Region which becomes a floral splendour during spring time - the main attraction of this region. We enjoyed the historic buildings which gives Calvinia its charm. Unfortunately we stayed over on a Sunday night which means restaurants were closed except for the restaurant in the Calvinia Hotel (previously the Hantam Hotel). Although we used Calvinia just as a stop-over we loved our stay there.
