This Country Lodge is more than a Bed and Breakfast or guest house: it is a home with a reputation for comfort, personal attention, friendliness and helpfulness.
Overlooking an orange orchard, between the Olifants and Jan Dissels rivers, the air here is clean and clear, and the light has magical qualities.
Also a beautiful garden and swimming pool.
All five of the rooms open to the garden, the centre of which is a huge wild fig tree. This tree is well over a hundred years old, and gives the lodge its own ambience of peace and protection.
Guests are welcome to relax in the garden around the fish pond, to use the splash pool and to enjoy drinks on the shaded verandah or in the guest lounge in the hundred year old section of the lodge.
Jams, warm bread, fresh muffins, muesli, all home-made, contribute to a delightful breakfast. Dinners which are by arrangement are an outstanding highlight of a visit to Saint du Barrys.
Having drinks on the patio or at the fish-pond in the late afternoon, watching the light change from gold to pink to dark-blue is a favourite past-time of guests.

Ensconced in the magical Oliphant's River Valley, Clanwilliam Hotel is situated off the beaten track. Only two hours drive from Cape Town, the hotel offers air-conditioned rooms, swimming pool and secure parking.
This upmarket country-chic bed and breakfast was born out of a love for the countryside, and the town of Clanwilliam in particular. The distinct characteristics of each guest room, quiet corner and garden space tells a story of relaxation and inspiration.
