Handpicked for you...

The Old School House, in the Matjiesvlei valley, 14km outside of Calitzdorp is a mountain hideaway for the whole family. Pack your sunbock and your swimsuit and head up South Africa’s famous Route 62. Whether it’s a family affair or a group getaway, The Old School House is perfect! The free-standing Victorian house can be rented out privately or along with the River View Cottages only a short walk away.

The house- originally a schoolhouse and converted into a guesthouse in 2001- has panoramic views of the surrounding mountain ranges and a calming and serene view of the majestic valley below.

The Old School House offers ample opportunity for fishing and bird watching as well as mountain biking and 4×4 trails. Swim in the Gamka river, fish from it’s banks or, for the more adventurous, walk one of the marked trails through the veld.

Explore the town of Calitzdorp famous for “South Africa’s best” Port and spend the evening around a fire under the stars. You can actively enjoy the pristine wilderness or, you can do nothing.
