About La Bastide

La Bastide is nestled at the foothills of the majestic Magaliesberg Mountains in the picturesque Skeerpoort Valley. Just minutes away from the Hartbeespoort Dam, our ‘country-style’ accommodation provides a peaceful, relaxing setting from which to explore the area. There is an abundance of activities available which include adventure sports, off road cycling, hiking, golf courses, ballooning, boat cruises, animal sanctuaries/rehabilitation, birding, wild life tours and many more.

La Bastide is an ACCOMMODATION venue and does not have facilities for entertaining and hosting large parties for dinner/braaiing. There are however a number of venues nearby for dining and functions and large parties of people.

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.

La Bastide encourages group bookings especially mid-week and can accommodate up to twenty five persons
and offers very competitive pricing for such groups.

There are a number of excellent restaurants within easy reach such as Die ou Pastorie, The Silver Orange and the Aviator, and many more within a ten minute drive .

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 ( The Cradle Health Spa) and Die Ou Pastorie and The Aviator are close by. There are a

The place is absolutely clean, neat and comfortable and the architecture & location are certainly attractions on their own. Gwen has a very hospitable and warm character, which made our stay even more pleasant. I would definitely be back at La Bastide!

Dear Gwen, thank you again for the supernice stay at your beautiful country-estate: What a gem you have! We are now already back home in Europe and very sad about leaving warm, sunny and stunning Southafrica - hope, we can spread the seed of travelling and being open minded to our kids :-)******************************************************

Very friendly and welcoming, the cottage was more than what we expected, loved it. ******************************************************We are delighted that this party of young adults enjoyed themselves at La Bastide as well as in the Hartbeespoort area. They brought their adorable puppy with them, which thoroughly enjoyed our spacious grounds.
