About Matjiesvlei Cottages

These 3 fully equipped self-catering holiday homes are situated in Matjiesvlei (Matjies Valley) at the foothills of the Swartberg Mountain Range, only 14 km from Calitzdorp.

The spectacular mountain views along with the mixed farming activities of the valley provide a tranquil atmosphere.

Excellent location along a hilly gravel road. Views over olives and the hills. Enjoyed the stoep, and cool breeze. Although it feels far away from it all......you have WiFi.

Wat 'n wonderlike 2 dae, siele rus.Als was so mooi skoon en op sy plek, die heerlikeste braaistoep. Pragtige grasperk, lekker plaasdam, pragtige vetplant tuin. Wens ons kon langer bly. Sal baie baie beslis weer kom.

If you enjoy doing nothing and love the stillness of the Karoo, lazing on the stoep, overlooking olive groves then this karoo house (die stalle) is for you. We loved being on the stoep with a fire going in the evening. After a great sleep on white bedding you wake up to the sound of all the birds. Take a stroll down to a small stream below the house. Thank you...I will be back again.
