Schoone Oordt Country House
Dating back to 1853, Schoone Oordt is a voluptuous, meticulously restored Victorian homestead presiding over 5,000m2 of lush grounds in the quaint farming town of Swellendam. Perfectly positioned between Cape Town and the Garden Route, Swellendam is the ideal stopover or weekend break from the hustle and bustle of the city as well as a destination unto itself.

Schoone Oordt`s grounds house eight magnificently crafted, luxurious suites, a romantic honeymoon hideaway and a private, spacious family suite set amongst tranquil fountains, fragrant gardens, manicured lawns and an invigorating salt-water pool. Each room has been fitted with every modern convenience whilst retaining the Victorian feel of the manor house and a bygone era.

Meals are a delight and made with love at Schoone Oordt. Breakfasts are extensive, delicious and served in the sunlight-filled conservatory in the mornings. Dinners are prepared by the renowned Koornlands Restaurant, one of the top eateries in Swellendam, and enchant with a fusion of Cape Country and European cuisine. Light snacks and delectable afternoon tea and cake are available throughout the day.

The grounds themselves have been especially designed to host weddings, parties or even executive conferences and exclusive team-building weekends. Choose from the intimate and private conference venue with views of the mountains, the light and airy conservatory with views of the gardens or the cosy, formal dining room in the grand old house. Schoone Oordt is truly an extraordinary venue with exceptional taste.

The area around Schoone Oordt offers guests an abundance of activities. Hiking, horse-trails, bike-trails, watersports as well as visits to the nearby Nature Reserves are a must. A trip to the De Hoop Nature Reserve for whale watching in season cannot be missed. Along with a nine-hole golf course, quaint coffee shops, the renowned Drostdy museum, berry-picking, lavender-picking, good restaurants and a feast of art, Swellendam spoils its visitors for choice.

After all, the emphasis at Schoone Oordt, most importantly, is on luxurious elegance, quality and acute attention to detail without pretence or stuffiness. She is a grand old dame with genuine soul, heart and a passion for people and the environment.

She looks forward to welcoming you.
