Bartholomeus Klip

Afrique Du Sud / Hermon Western Cape / Western Cape

Bartholomeus Klip is a charming small hotel for only 16 guests on a working wheat and sheep farm just over an hour away from Cape Town – ideally situated for exploring the famous winelands. There is a 4 000 hectare fynbos nature reserve, with a spectacular backdrop of mountains, to be explored on game drives or by mountain bike, and beautiful gardens with a unique swimming pool. The food is renowned, with lavish brunches and high teas, and a gourmet three-course dinner. The separate Wild Olive House, with its own swimming pool, can be hired on a self-catering or full-board basis. The farmhouse has been restored to the highest standards of comfort and decorated by the owners, working with a well-known interior designer from Cape Town and using family pieces from their own collection. A separate building down by the lake makes a scenic venue for weddings and small conferences. It has an upstairs sitting room and balcony with a view over the water which makes a magical setting for sundowners.
