About Saxe-Coburg Lodge
Nestling beneath the Swartberg mountains lies the village of Prince Albert, possibly the prettiest small town in South Africa, with its Karoo style, Cape Dutch and Victorian houses lining quiet arboured streets, canals lead mountain water into the lush gardens of flowers and fruit trees, a veritable oasis.
True Karoo hospitality and personal service awaits guests at Saxe-Coburg Lodge. Dick and Regina Billiet welcome you to their large Karoo / Victorian home (circa 1865).
