Die Dorpshuis
Die Dorpshuis was built in 1885 as a prestige residence for an unknown person and is a prime example of Karoo Victorian architecture. Since then it was extended and become the residence and surgery for the dorp's doctors and eventually the home to a local school master.

It is surrounded by the Swartberg and Gamka Mountains and is set in the Gamka Valley Winelands. The warm atmosphere is created by Oregon floors and fireplaces.

Die Dorpshuis is centrally situated in Calitzdorp a quaint little town on ROUTE 62, nestled in the heart of the Klein Karoo, Western Cape.

Calitzdorp is also known as The Port-Wine Capital of South Africa

Calitzdorp lies on the famous R62, 49 km's from Oudtshoorn to the east and 50 km's to Ladysmith in the west.

Accommodation includes a self-catering cottage with two rooms to sleep four guests.

The garden, described by a guest as 'a little farm glen', is the owner's pride, and is rounded off with an azure pool. Beautifully decorated en suite rooms are equipped with DSTV.

The restaurant is open around the clock, and offers mouthwatering traditional home-cooked fare.

The gift shop sells fresh dried fruit, home-made jams and curios.

You will experience lots of friendliness and hospitality in the 'Port capital' of South Africa, and guests are treated with a complimentary glass of Port before bedtime.

We enjoyed our stay at the Dorpshuis. It is neat and the people are very friendly.
 Reviewed by Helena van Antwerpen over a year ago

The room was a little dated but spotlessly clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant was very good. Excellent value for money.
