Mont Plaisir Guest Farm is a farm located 6 km out of Fouriesburg town with four luxurious self-catering units and one room in the historic Old Main House.

Fouriesburg offers you the fantastic scenery of the mountains, the splendid Golden Gate National Park and many historic sites from the Anglo-Boer War.

It is ideal for out-door activities, such as hiking, horse riding, but for those who just want to relax it is also the place to be.

The Fouriesburg area is just a few kilometers from the Lesotho border and the ideal starting point for day trips to Lesotho, with its majestic Maluti Mountains, the Katse Dam, its various nature reserves, and of course snow skiing in winter at Oxbow.

Annual events in Fouriesburg are the Asparagus festival in September/October and the Surrender Hill marathon in the last week of February and the Cherrie festival in Ficksburg in November.

Latest Reviews

We were looking for solitude in the mountainous Fouriesberg region, with rural character but good amenities and creature comforts in the winter season. And that's what we found at Mont Plaisir in their well-equipped Field Cottage. The turn from winter to spring added to the attractions and bird varieties. Braai-ing evening meals with the distant sound of howling black back jackals gave it a wonderful South African flavour!
