Handpicked for you...

The Karoo desert holds a special kind of African charm. Far from the concrete and hurry of urban life, this expanse of space, bountiful earth and seemingly infinite sky offers its guests an unrivalled tranquility.

In the heart of this thriving landscape rests Olive Farm, a 1600 hectare olive oil-producing farm. With the original farmhouses’ foundations dating back to 1810, this accommodation exudes a special sense of history, of age-old South African tradition.

Each of the available accomodations offer the pleasures of city convenience and luxury within a vast and magnificent country setting. The grand manor house, farm house and multiple cottages are fully equipped with state-of-the-art appliances, fittings and fixtures. Wake to watch the sun rise beside the crescent moon with a Nespresso coffee in-hand. Spend your days walking one of the many surrounding trails. Lose yourself in that novel you’ve been meaning to finish. Take a dip in one of the property’s pools overlooking the valleys and slopes of the Karoo mountains. Write, paint, draw or simply spend some uninterrupted time with those you love. Despite multiple cottages and farm homes resting on the property, the layout of the land allows for utter privacy and contemplative peace – only the morning birdsong breaks the quiet. Olive Farm is a wonderful choice for young familes.

Children can meet the resident farm animals, get acquainted with Wendy the Cow and roam the rich, open spaces. Visitors are welcome to help themselves to the abundant array of organic offerings from the farm’s veggie patch. Treat yourself to some free-range eggs for breakfast from the happy resident chickens or order the Karoo’s famed lamb for a uniquely South African dinner beneath the stars. Relax, reconnect and indulge in a luxurious escape amongst the stillness and all-encompassing beauty of Olive Farm.

    I wanted to drop you a note to say that we had the most awesome stay at Paradys Huis. The house looks like something from the inside of a Conde Nast magazine, it is beautifully luxurious, but also SUPER comfortable with loads of places to relax. We loved the resident flock of sheep that visited us each day. What a treat to wake up to some “baaaa-ing”! The location is private, the views are incredible, and I loved the Victorian bathtub with a magic view of the Karoo. We loved exploring the dams, and swimming in our private pool and at the dam. There was a canoe, and my girls LOVED that. Highlights - sundowners on the deck at the dam, bottle-feeding the lambs and milking the cows, the tortoises, walking in the mountains and kloof, and the freedom the girls felt riding all over the farm! You can even bring bunches of carrots to feed the pony, Mina. The farm location is perfect, and close to the gorgeous and quaint villages of Prince Albert, Meiringspoort, De Rust and the Swartberg Pass. Charlene, the farm manager, was welcoming and full of useful information. We thoroughly enjoyed the complimentary wine, olive oil and olives. Thank you so much for recommending it, and going to so much trouble to find us a special spot. We will definitely go again.
