The Country House and Olive Farm is situated in the Breede River Valley between the historical towns of McGregor, Bonnievale and the popular Robertson winelands. An olive grove of 3 000 mature olive trees, fynbos and renosterveld - home to the blue Crane, picturesque river banks, shady forests and spectacular mountains are there for you to explore.

Ideal for families and for romantic getaways, this restored Karoo-Georgian country house offers three large en-suite bedrooms; spacious living areas; an open fireplace; well-equipped kitchen; wide verandas; an infinity pool and shady picnic areas.

From the wide verandas enjoy breath-taking views over the valley, mountains and groves. Hidden in the olive grove alongside is the Hartbeeshuisie, a historical cottage and the Kasteeltjie, a comfortable unit built on a restored wine ’kuip’ with a lounge, dining and bedroom area, separate kitchen, bathroom and braai area.  

Riverside picnics, hiking trails, mountain climbing and biking, bird watching, country road drives, wine tasting routes, olive picking in season, star gazing, champagne air!

River side picnics


There are picnic spots along the Breede River. A favourite is the picnic boat trips on the Breede River from Viljoensdrift.

We also have a picnic spot on the farm under the 100-year old Oak trees down by the Boesmans River (river only flows in season).



There are many cycling routes and trails close to the farm.
