Situated in the heart of the Overberg, in the picturesque farming town of Swellendam you will find Schoone Oordt Country House. This well-known and much photographed Victorian landmark presides over 5000m2 of lush grounds, incorporating eight magnificently crafted, luxurious suites and a romantic honeymoon hide-away. The grounds contain manicured lawns, secret woodland glades, vegetable/herb gardens, a sparkling swimming pool, tranquil fountains and a fragrant rose garden. Eight luxury guest cottages and a honeymoon cottage have been carefully designed to blend with the character of the main house. The house holds testament to Richard’s keen eye for true collectors’ pieces and his love of antique hunting. No detail has been overlooked. Alison has years of experience in the advertising industry and in event production, so if you have a celebration in mind, Al will bring it to life! Schoone Oordt Country House is, of course, just perfect for relaxing and reviving the spirit.
Positioned around bubbling fountains and a fragrant rose garden are eight luxurious suites, each with their own separate entrance. After a long day’s drive, have an afternoon nap on the custom-made 100%cotton percale and goose down bedding. Step into the huge shower or take a soak in hot bath and listen to the country birdsong just outside the window.
Schoone Oordt’s ample grounds house all you require for a totally relaxing, exclusive and luxurious escape echoing the beautiful mansion’s grand and slightly eccentric past. On a cold winter’s night warm yourself with a hot drink by the fire. On hot summer day’s slip into the cool saltwater swimming pool, or lounge in the shaded deckchairs and wait for the next round of drinks to be served. The sun-kissed conservatory is the ideal place to have one of Schoone Oordt's lovingly prepared breakfasts or the perfect venue to host a formal evening function. Airport transfers and day trips can be arranged as well as suggestions for eating out, exploring the area, on-site pampering or ideas for just relaxing and whiling away the time.
