Repos Trouvé

“Repos Trouvé” is an old French phrase which means “True place of rest” and in this beautifully and lovingly restored Karoo/Provencal retreat, you will find personalised touches that have led guests to say that they feel like they are staying in a friend’s special holiday home. 

“Repos Trouvé” sleeps 2 – 6 people, offering three comfortable bedrooms, furnished in true Karoo style. All the bedrooms have luxurious linen, ceiling fans and mosquito nets.

The main bedroom has French doors opening onto a covered farmhouse stoep, with its spreading vines, where you can enjoy al fresco dining whilst enjoying the views towards the Swartberg Mountains. Two more bedrooms have their own unique character and charm.

There are two bathrooms with fluffy towels provided, including pool towels.

Enjoy cooking delicious meals in a well-equipped authentic Karoo kitchen including French country table, 4-plate electric stove/oven, fridge/freezer, microwave, cutlery and crockery. You will find coffee, tea, milk and rusks on arrival.

The dining room and lounge area is a warm and inviting mix of comfort and country décor.

Relax with a good book in the cosy reading room or curl up on the sofa in front of the fireplace in the snuggery, where we provide wood on arrival.

The tranquil and private garden is a delicious mix of citrus and olive trees, herbs and Karoo succulents enhanced with scented lavenders and geraniums.

The braai/barbeque area and splash pool with loungers invites you to simply savour the stillness of country living.

Wood + firelighters supplied for your first night’s roaring fire or braai!

Extra blankets / wall heaters and hot water bottles are provided for your comfort in winter!

We support the Pick a Piece Recycling Community Project. A basket is provided for you to fill with recyclables for this project.

There is off street parking and you are close enough to the centre of the village, should you wish to leave the car and walk. Restaurants, Cafés, the Showroom Theatre and ATM are situated one street away and close enough to walk to. The koppie trail is another  street away should you wish to get some exercise, enjoy magnificent views at sunrise or sunset or even bird watch!
