Room with a view

With a view over the vineyards and mountains, it’s hard to leave the bedroom of your d’Olyfboom Family Estate Guest House!

 

Let’s be honest. There’s more to a guest house than a bedroom. But lying in an oversized, comfy bed, with a view out over the vines, mountains and pretty Paarl countryside is hard to beat. And trust us, it’s fairly hard to tear yourself away when you’re staying in one of the five guest suites at d’Olyfboom Family Estate. But tear yourself away you must … as there’s so much more to explore and enjoy.

This historic estate in the Western Cape sits jolly prettily against the Paarl Mountain, looking out over the town, vineyards and countryside and is close to all the town has to offer … art galleries and antique shops, museums and restaurants.

A highlight at d’Olyfboom, which is all old-school charm and romance, is the Rahzu experience … weather permitting, you can have private or group lessons in the lush gardens … calm, tranquil and soothing, it’s a sublime treat.

The intimate guest house dishes up healthy Boland breakfasts, and is massively popular as a wedding venue. A perfectly romantic spot in the winelands … well worth considering if you’re heading to the Cape this year.

Rates are from around R835 a person, sharing, but check the website as there are seasonal changes and specials. The guest house is part of the Cape Country Routes (CCR) South Africa collection … a group of around 20 owner-operated and managed hotels, lodges and guest houses on the scenic and historic routes in the Western and Eastern Cape.

Vineyards. Romance. History. All you want in a Cape Winelands escape, really. And all found in abundance at the d’Olyfboom Family Estate guest house in Paarl.
