Possibly the finest accommodation in Swellendam, on South Africa’s Garden Route, Augusta de Mist is a lifestyle retreat set on over 2 ha of eclectic fynbos. This hideaway from the hustle is located in the historic Drostdy Quarter of Swellendam and in typical Cape fashion tells the old stories of this old Overberg town in a deeply romantic 1802 Cape Dutch homestead with more original features than you can shake a stick at. The grounds, always in bloom with the indigenous, go on forever and provide a true African backdrop.
Bicycle lovers can bring along their bikes and cycle around Swellendam town at their leisure. There are also a range of mountain bike trails both in the Marloth Nature Reserve and surrounds.
