Country Places Accommodation Guide

A country getaway suggests peace, quiet and proper relaxation. With the technology and relentless pace that we face in our daily lives, the idea of switching off completely is often our greatest wish.

Our selection of country places allow you to do just that. They range from manor houses in small towns and mountain regions like the Drakensberg to farm stays in the Karoo. Beach lodges on the Wild Coast offer you isolated escapes while guest houses in the sparsely populated Overberg region are great places to lose yourself.

All our country places have one thing in common - they're designed to give you that essential break that makes life easier to cope with on your return.
