About Chateau SalMichele

Chateau SalMichele is a quaint, Cape Dutch farm house which was built in the ‘60’s in a small farm-holding of Hartebeestfontein at the foothill of the Magaliesburg Mountain as a residence of a school headmaster. The house is still in pristine condition with wooden and rock stone flooring with spacious rooms and an open space living room with lovely views of the gardens adjoining a dining area with a brick fireplace.

Self Catering Accommodation

The farm house offers of two double bedrooms and two single rooms, a spacious lounge with a TV, dining room, one bathroom and a fully functioning kitchen. A cot, stroller, DVD player and a Wii console plus games is available upon request.

The garden is set up in a natural landscape and boasts a dam where the Malachite Kingfisher is a regular visitor. Over 30 local indigenous birds frequently visit the farm, along with that there is a rare sighting of the Blue crane and paradise flycatchers.


Waking up with the cockerel crowing, petting sheep, goats, cows and collecting eggs every morning are some of the joys of farm living. Blue monkeys, weasels, squirrels, meerkats and of course the impalas and gemsbok can be seen all around the farm house.

The farm house also has 110 Kalamata olive trees along with peach, apricot, pomegranate, apple, pears, plums and mulberry trees. The house is also complimented with mini herbs nursery for the culinary experience of fresh ingredients to pick and use when seasonally available.


If you are feeling energetic then there is a lot the Magaliesburg Meander offers in its surroundings. For example, hiking, river rafting, trails, fishing, balloon safari, micro-lighting, mountain biking, clay pigeon shooting, archery, horse riding, rock climbing etc. These activities can be organised with prior arrangement at an extra cost or can be self sourced. We have a directory of all activities in the near surroundings.

After a hectic day of riding, fishing or climbing why not enjoy the family time with a braai at the Lapa and then spend the time sitting and listening to natures chorus of wild sounds of local fauna in the cosy surroundings of the boma’s fire. Gaze at the stars and the Milky Way in the unpolluted skylines of Magaliesburg. Soon you will realise that you are sitting in the land of ancient habitats, one of the oldest treks of civilisation on the Earth; The Cradle of Humankind.

Chateau SalMichele is only a 45 minute drive from Johannesburg and Pretoria and is situated in the Hartebeestfontein Conservancy and Magaliesburg Meanders precinct.
