About Calitzdorp Country House

Overlooking the little town of Calitzdorp on Route 62, Calitzdorp Country House offers spectacular views across a fertile valley of vineyards and orchards to the majestic Swartberg Mountains beyond.

Capturing the style of a gentlemanís country residence, Calitzdorp Country House exudes a quiet, elegant ambience. Add a formal dining room, spacious lounge, five individually decorated luxurious bedrooms, voluptuous bathrooms with shower and baths spacious enough for a tryst, pool with shady gazebo, an air of relaxed comfort, and Calitzdorp Country House has to be the destination for visitors to the region. The Houseís well-stocked wine cellar secretes both local and classical South African wines to complement your silver and crystal dining experience.


Five luxurious air-conditioned bedrooms, each with its own private patio, garden and bubbling water fountain, are furnished throughout with Victorian, Cape and French antiques and graced with a fabulous collection of original South- and West African paintings, carvings and bronzes. Original Oregon wood floors provide the perfect mirrored showcase for a colorful variety of Persian rugs, adding to the overall elegance.

Beds are king size extra length, clad in fine linen, down pillows and duvets to ensure a peaceful nightís rest. The Italian-tiled en-suite bathrooms include showers, twin washbasins on magnificently patterned granite slabs and best of all, outsize baths that invite intimate candle-lit assignations. Luxuries include Charlotte Rhys fine toiletries.

Relaxing & Dining

The decoratorís theme extends to the elegant and spacious dining and sitting rooms, where languid ceiling fans, hand crafted in the colonial style, produce gentle swirls of cooling air. In the hotter months, air conditioning throughout the House effortlessly copes with your need for comfort.

The sitting room features a 19th century Cape yellowwood jonkmanskas (bachelorís clothes cupboard), and a pair of majestic oak boardroom chairs from the Johannesburg Stock Exchange circa 1904 set amongst a treasured collection of china, paintings and bronzes.

Tables in the classical dining room are topped with lustrous yellowwood imbued with all the character that comes from their previous existence as ceilings in the original farm homestead. A fine example of Cape koskas (pantry cupboard), in beefwood and fruitwood presides benevolently over warm wooden floors covered with rich Persian carpets. An 1836 walnut piano leads to the dining room entrance, flanked by an intriguing work of art in fiberglass and oil opposite a lacquered Chinese screen.


The cool shade of a verandah which surrounds three sides of the house entices guests to relax on 19th century Cape and Transvaal rusbanke with a book or cocktail, to absorb the quiet pleasure of the splendid scenery, or take in the many examples of bird life on the adjacent dam and its surrounding trees.

Indeed, Calitzdorp, with its many species of birds, provides an ornithologistís paradise - recently, a Blue Crane has joined the Hamerkops and Reed Cormorant visiting our dam.
