Once you’ve experienced the beauty of the Karoo, you’ll want to return. The lovely Victorian farmhouse, The Retreat, is luxuriously comfortable 4 star accommodation set in 560ha of the Groenfontein Valley Conservancy, which borders on the Swartberg Nature Reserve. You’ll love the typical Karoo farmhouse – the wooden floors, the fireplaces, the big verandah and the mountains.
At The Retreat, you’ll also enjoy that wonderful Karoo hospitality as you enjoy your coffee in the morning, taking in that fresh aroma that is part of the wonder of the Karoo. What people appreciate at The Retreat is the sheer break from some 21st century amenities such as cell phones and TV. There is no cell phone reception and no TV sets in the rooms. The main lounge has a TV.
The Retreat operates with solar power too. Another drawcard with The Retreat is that this is pet friendly accommodation if your pet can behave itself. Just check with the owners first. Guests love the long walks and being able to cool off in the rock pools of the river. No wonder The Retreat comes as ‘Highly Recommended’ by AA Accommodation.
