Bella de Karoo



Bella de Karoo farm stall, restaurant, guest accommodation and eco-reserve are situated on Andrieskraal, one of the most historical farms in the Klein Karoo. Most of the buildings date from the late 1700s and the nearby graveyard (available on Google) bears testimony to the many generations who lived here.
Take a leisurely walk and savour the beauty of the architecture of days gone by. An old barn has been converted into guest accommodation, retaining its vintage character, and the manor house (available for guests too) is also a must-see for its grandeur and beautiful surroundings, adorned with centuries-old trees.
Above the R62 is an eco-reserve, formally registered with Cape Nature, where you will find an abundance of indigenous plant species, some of them more than a thousand years old. Wildlife also roams freely and unhindered. Take a walk or cycle along the marked paths, and commune with nature.
There is also overnight accommodation available, pitched on a hill, where you can relax in peace and tranquillity, with a panoramic view of the surrounding landscape.
Accommodation consists of:
  • 6 Guest Rooms
  • 1 Manor House (max 8 people)



A 200-year old Barn has been converted into guest rooms, retaining the original character of the building, with thick walls, wooden floors and reed ceilings. It offers 4 units of different sizes, which can accommodate from 2 to 4 individuals.

The Farm House, dating back to the early 1800s – it was the first house next to the Vlei River – offers 3 units, each with a character of its own, and which can accommodate from 2 to 4 people.

If you wish to really spoil yourself, there is the Manor House, a Cape Dutch building, also dating back to early 1800s, which offers you 3 bedrooms, and is furnished with hand-picked/inherited pieces of furniture. In all, it offers a one-off experience! It can accommodate up to 6 people.

There is a communal braai/barbeque area, overlooked by a huge pepper tree, as well as two other braai facilities, equally beautiful. We also provide our guests with “braai packs” consisting of meat, salads and farm bread. The accommodation is child-friendly, with green lawns and farm animals, and for those hot summer days, there is also a cement dam, our version of a splash pool! Laundry facilities and Wi-Fi are available upon request, and we are pet-friendly.

The Mountain Lodge is positioned in the eco-reserve and offers bush-like accommodation and a lovely entertainment area. From here you have a breathtaking panoramic view over the Lategan’s Valley. 4 people can be accommodated and the Lodge can be reached only by a 4×4 vehicle or per special arrangement.

Restaurant & Farm Stall

The farm stall, housed in an old labourer’s cottage, stocks a sumptuous variety of locally produced products – jams, home-made rusks/cookies, canned fruit, flavoured olive oils, vinegars, biltong/dried sausage, and freshly baked roosterkoek and farm bread. The roosterkoek has become so popular that it attracts people from neighbouring towns who purchase it in bulk for their own outlets. There is also a petite cellar room, stocked with locally produced wines, sparkling wine, port and a large selection of beer.

Extending from the farm stall along the veranda, the restaurant presents you with a captivating view wherever you are seated, with farm animals such as ducks, fowl, turkeys and peacocks surrounding you. It is a picturesque setting with an ambience unique to Bella de Karoo. If you are looking to taste real farm food, you have most certainly come to the right place! The menu complements the setting – the fare is home-made, fresh, original and quite simply out of this world.  The restaurant has earned various accolades for the quality of experience it offers diners. Guests staying overnight may place an order for dinner in advance, which can be served either inside their room or outside on the veranda (weather permitting), where they are able to take in the beauty of the surroundings.

Bella’s Restaurant and Bar will accept bookings for groups of 10 or more after 16h00 until late​.The bar and entertainment area, which is adjacent to the restaurant, is a cozy and relaxed spot, with a unique character of its own. You can watch sport on a flat screen, while enjoying something to drink and experiencing the tranquillity which only a farm can offer. Why not drive out there on a Friday late afternoon or on a Saturday/Sunday morning, take a walk in the eco-reserve, and come back revitalized by nature, to sit down and relax with something refreshing in hand! Meals can also be ordered through the restaurant.
