About La Bastide

La Bastide is nestled at the foothills of the majestic Magaliesberg Mountains in the picturesque Scheerpoort Valley. Just minutes away from the Hartbeespoort Dam, our ‘country-style’ accommodation provides a peaceful, relaxing setting from which to explore the area and the abundance of activities available.

La Bastide means 'The Country House' in French and this resonates with the quaint architecture and the wholesome environment. The guest rooms and self-catering cottages are adorned with handcrafted furniture and original art and are set within tranquil gardens that form a tribute to the plant and birdlife. The charming rooms and self-catering cottages are tastefully decorated, perfect for an overnight stay, weekend break or longer getaway. The year-round beauty of the surroundings makes La Bastide an attractive destination to spend winter evenings round the fireplace or summer days in the pool.

We are also just a short drive away from all the major wedding venues in the area including Leopard Lodge, Green Leaves, Red Ivory, Pecan Manor and Die ou Pastorie.We do not provide breakfast but there are a number of restaurants close by which do, one of which is only a 200m walk from the property.

Small things - one heater not working / door curtain bit to short / short of coffee. But not really issue

We were so sad to only have one night at this beautiful, tranquil establishment which is nestled in the valley below the mountain. What a warm and friendly welcome we were given by Gwen. ****************************************************Dear Sir/Madam,Thanks for this feedback.

Lovely place with a beautiful green Garden. The welcome we received was super friendly, and we even got moved to a bigger room at no extra charge- a lovely surprise. Perfect if you are spending the night or have planned activities around the area.
