The Retreat at Groenfontein is breathtakingly beautiful. The surrounding Swartberg mountains, multiple walking trails, abundant birdlife, the dam and river and the stillness are all complimented by the sense of care that Marie and Grant bring to their “retreat”. The traditional home-cooked meals and the connection created with other guests by the communal eating style left us as a family feeling so blessed to have experienced this haven in the Klein Karoo. This is a truly special place for relaxing and unwinding, Karoo-style.

GUEST FEEDBACK

Retreat at Groenfontien

"We were astounded at this absolute "gem" hidden away in this amazing valley. Unfortunately we only used it as a stop over, we will definitely be back for a longer stay"

"It was a very good enjoyable quick stay. Very remote and sadly didn't have time to walk the area. But please note it's a good 40 minutes on a dirt road from the N2. The road is very well maintained."
