About Marquard Huis
Situated in the Eastern Free State, Marquard is a unique blend of old world meets new. A wave of nostalgia steps in as one is greeted with old friend hand waves against a backdrop of fine South African hospitality.
Marquard’s country style living welcomes you on arrival with surrounding fields of wheat, maize or sunflowers; dependent on the season while grazing cows and sheep gently serenade you into a dreamlike lullaby amidst the fresh farm air acting as the perfect duvet for the restless and fatigued mind and soul.
Embraced by the Koranna Mountains which forms the general introduction to the majestic Maluti Mountains, Marquard is located only 45 minutes away from Maseru, Lesotho or 30 minutes from the Cherry Capital of Ficksburg.
