A beautifully, lovingly restored Georgian and Victorian building, the five star country retreat of Schoone Oordt is tucked away in picturesque Swellendam, along the Garden Route in the Western Cape. This double story house is set in lush, abundant gardens, sheltered by aged oak trees with views extending to the magnificent mountains beyond. The extensive grounds of Schoone Oordt house eight beautifully crafted sumptuous suites, a quaint, private family cottage (children of all ages are welcome) and a romantic and secluded honeymoon hideaway.
Each luxurious suite has every modern convenience while restored antiques retain the Victorian feel of a bygone era. Some features include king size extra length beds, goose down bedding with cotton percale linen, luxurious wool carpets, under-floor heating and heated towel rails in the bathrooms, air-conditioning, fireplace, satellite television, DVD player, minibar, custom made tea and coffee station and private balconies and entrances.
The Manor House boasts an exquisite light and airy conservatory, cosy fire-lit bar and lounge, an intimate dining room and a true country kitchen. Breakfasts are a 3-course affair and Eighteen53 plays host to intimate dinners.
The grounds hold secure parking and a relaxing swimming pool area. The area surrounding Schoone Oordt offers an abundance of activities from hiking, horse-trails, bike rides and watersports to visits to the nearby nature reserves, Robertson Wine Valley, local Drostdy Museum or historical Swellendam sights.
