Bella-De-Karoo R62

Bella de Karoo is much more than the sum of its parts and should be on top of your list when planning your next holiday. It is situated along the scenic R62 route, which has been nominated by CNN as one of the 10 best road trips for 2017, between Oudtshoorn and Calitzdorp, the only facility of its kind. It offers a unique combination of experiences, ranging from a farm stall and restaurant, to vintage accommodation and a breathtaking eco-reserve. Housed on Andrieskraal, one of the most historic farms in the Klein Karoo, with buildings dating back to the early 1800s, the setting is unequalled in its charm and beauty.

Why not plan your next holiday to come and stay with us and explore the serene surroundings of Bella and places nearby worth visiting. Bella offers the ideal environment to unwind. There is no better way than to take a long walk in the eco-reserve, appreciate the abundance of scarce flora and slowly but surely merge with nature. On top of the hill, hidden amongst bushes, is an overnight and braai facility, with a panoramic view of the surrounding landscape. A sundowner here will be an unforgettable experience!

We are equipped to host conferences and functions of whatever nature, including weddings.

Apart from the tranquillity the farm offers, there are also within close range the following place worth visiting:
Gamkaberg Nature Resserve – 22 minutes
Swartberg Game Reserve – 30 minutes
Meerkat Adventures – 11 minutes
Grundheim Wines – 16 mins
Peter Bayly Wines – 30 minutes

Come and stay with us for a once in a lifetime experience of true South African hospitality in the heart of the Klein Karoo and its unsurpassed beauty and attractions!

The accommodation was brilliant and the staff were always on hand to assist where necessary (Linda did a great job keeping tabs on all the arrangements for such a large group). Thank you Bella for an absolute fab stay! See you soon!

Service was excellent and the food was so good. Very reasonably priced and a nice relaxing atmosphere. Friendly and ‘homeish’ atmosphere a must for the weary traveller…Lots of nice goodies to buy in the shop!!

The setting is so perfect and tranquil a typical rustic farm atmosphere. You feel free and safe and so at peace in this tiny spot of tranquillity surrounded by sparse barren vegetation and huge rugged mountain ranges. The staff and the owners went out of their way to make our stay a memorable one. I can highly recommend this country farm stay along Route 62.
