R1680 per person

Experience country living on a historic Cape Dutch estate, called Augusta de Mist Country House, built 1802, centrally situated in the historic heart of Swellendam. The guest house is owner managed, offering superb hospitality with great attention to detail, focussing on quality, comfort and style.

The interiors at Augusta are vibrant. It reflects the personal journeys of the owners: all art, craft, and furniture on the estate come from a large collection of vintage items and antiques, all with a story. We take our inspiration from mother Africa – the most vibrant continent. It is defined by its intoxicating colours and patterns; sounds of nature, music and laughter: aromas of earth, rain and ripe fruit. There is no place for bland. No time for being predictable and certainly no colour palette for beige.

Accommodation consists of 6 luxurious suites in different locations on the estate, each one with its own unique atmosphere. The garden suites are unique with total privacy and intimate setting. Suites have fireplaces (wood supplied), modern comforts, air-con, DStv or DVD players in 2 others, a small movie library, music stations with a few jazz and chamber recordings supplied as well as boardgames.

As you step inside the suites, you discover even more country romance in the stylishly appointed interiors, which mixes the eclectic African, South African and European heritage. In reflecting the architecture, each of the suites features subtle and unique decor. The finishes are chosen for comfort and have a lived-in feel. Vintage pieces and antiques have been selected with care, adding to the homegrown spirit that pervades.

Unique African art punctuates throughout. Crisp yet plush bedding comforts you through the night while the Bespoke lamps provide a source of warm and cosy lighting.
