About Matjiesvlei Guest Farm

Come enjoy the serene and tranquil beauty of Matjiesvlei, situated at the foothills of the Swartberg Mountains between Calitzdorp and Ladismith, where farming dates back as far as 1821.

Indulge in the comfort of one of our four historic and quaint self-catering cottages nestled in this picturesque valley. Each cottage offers an equipped kitchen, barbecue facilities, bedding, oil lamps, candles, and hot water.

If you prefer being even closer to nature try our camping site, Die Dam Rivierkamp, situated on the shores of the Gamka River. The River Camp is a shady 4x4 bush camp with modern ablution blocks and hot water, situated on the banks of the Gamka River.

Die Wahuis is designed for a couple to enjoy a breath-taking view of manicured lucerne fields, the winding Gamka River and the majestic Swartberg Mountain Range. The restored building includes a double bedroom, sitting room, kitchen, bathroom and stoep with a braai.

We booked Die Wa-Huis at the last minute and we discovered an absolute gem! No cell phone signal or electricity ensures a different experience yet truly special stay! The views are majestic and the cottage has everything you need. We loved exploring the area on our mountain bikes. We will definitely be back for longer!

Die Wa Huis and Huis Oppie Rant are places with the most stunning views. Well appointed with all you need for a quiet time away from the rush. Also, no cell phone coverage - bliss. Bennie and Selma are the most accommodating hosts. This was our second visit here and we will be back.

The location is so stunning. What a joy to be in such a magnificent setting.  The walks are beautiful.  The accomodation was great.  The cottages are so well equipped and more than enough of everything.  Despite the fact that there was no electricity other than in the kitchen we had more than enough light and were warm.  Thanks for a lovely stay.  Claudia Chandler
