Description surroundings:

This third oldest place in South Africa celebrated its 250th anniversary in 1995. Swellendam is located at the foot of Langeberg Mountain, which is not only famous for ‘the blackberries’, but also for its architecture, fascinating past, and the great outdoors.

The Koornlands river, the old oaks and the stately estates show you their charm. Swellendam is only 7 km from the Bontebok National Park. The nearby Marloth Nature Reserve offers you one-day hiking tours and even nocturnal mountain hiking trails through the Langeberg Mountains.

The Robertson Wine valley, one of the best kept secrets of the Western Cape, includes the Ashton, Bonnievale, McGregor and Robertson areas, and is less than a two-hour drive from Cape Town. The valley is sometimes called the valley of wine and roses. The valley is beautiful because of the Breede River and the Langeberg Mountains, but is also characterized by the relaxed hospitality of its people.

Cape Agulhas, the southernmost tip of Africa, is approximately 100 km from the Jan Harmsgat Country Guesthouse. A great lighthouse, built in 1848, is definitely worth a visit. The lighthouse still functions to warn ships of the treacherous coastline. At the lighthouse are a tea room and a museum.
