Matjiesvlei Cottages are situated in Matjiesvlei, at the foothills of the Swartberg Mountain Range, only 16 kilometer from Calitzdorp on Route 62. Along with the mixed farming activities, the valley provides a tranquil atmosphere.
Matjiesvlei Cottages offers guests a choice of staying in one of two units, which are restored historical Klein Karoo cottages; Die Bokwagtershuis and Die Stalle / The Stables. Also located on the farm are two other cottages, the Matjiesvlei Cottages: Middelplaas and Skuur.
“Bokwagtershuis”, (Goatkeeper’s house), was originally built during the 19th century as accommodation for Matjiesvlei’s goat keeper. His task was to tend to all the goats of the different farmers in the valley. The house has been authentically restored to maintain its atmosphere, with the addition of modern amenities.
Die Bokwagtershuis is a spacious two bedroom self-catering cottage and all linen, including towels, are provided. The kitchen is equipped with the necessary utensils to make your stay a relaxing one. You will find cutlery, crockery, kettles, toasters, microwaves and fridge-freezers. Die Bokwagtershuis has a stove, and Die Stalle has a two-plate on-counter stove on the stoep.
Die Stalle / The Stables has three bedrooms; a bathroom; kitchenette and stoep with a built-in braai. Both cottages have splendid views over the mountains and the veld.
