About Voelgesang Farmstay

Voelgesang Farmstay is located on a working farm at the foot of the majestic Swartberg Mountains. Here is where guests can enjoy the bright stars and silence of the Little Karoo.

Guests have a choice of staying in one of eight Self-catering Units with a big patio to sit and relax. The units offer double beds and bathrooms with baths and showers; we provide clean linen and towels for convenience. The kitchens are fully equipped with stoves, microwaves and fridges, and guests can relax in their private lounge areas. There are barbecue facilities and safe parking.

When visiting Voelgesang Farmstay, guests can go on walks, do birdwatching or bring their own bicycle or quad bike to explore the farm. There are also hiking trails up the mountainside between huge aloes and across the many perennial mountain streams. Those looking to explore some more can do the De Rust Historic Tours, go on a wine tasting tour at Mons Ruber and Domein Doornkraal; visit the magnificent waterfall hidden in Meiringspoort Pass or the Cango Caves at Oudtshoorn.

We stayed here on our way to the Karoo2Coast MTB race. Voelgesang delivered everything it said it would. We enjoyed staying here.

I spent 1 night at Voelgesang. It is a delightful place to stay. It was spotlessly clean, the bed was very comfortable, with white cotton sheets. The kitchenette was well appointed and it was set in a beautiful garden. Voelgesang is well named, the bird song was lovely.

What a delight it was to stay at Voelgesang!  It was so much more than what we had anticipated.We intended to stay in Oudtshoorn on our holiday but could not find any accommodation due to a festival being held there.  I am very glad there was a festival as Voelgesang exceeded our expectations and is situated in the more picturesque town of De Rust!An added bonus is that Meiringspoort Pass is a stone's throw away from this location and is definitely worth the drive from Oudtshoorn!
