La Plume is a Boutique Guest House on a working ostrich, alfalfa and cattle farm with spectacular views of the Swartberg Mountains and the Olifants River Valley.

A warm welcome awaits you at this charming 1902 Victorian homestead with its tranquil surroundings where Karin, the owner, has combined old-world charm with modern comforts to ensure extraordinary service and personal attention.

Our attention to detail, colour and texture is a contribution to the art of gracious living.

Our Rooms

La Plume offers stylish luxury with a diverse range of accommodation from a Cottage, Private Farm Villa, Luxury Rooms to Luxury Junior Suite, Honeymoon and Superior Suites. With private entrances, sunny verandas and elegant, comfortable antiques, each of the 20 individually furnished air-conditioned rooms and suites offer satellite television, free WiFi, mini bar and abundant comforts.

Apart from the private seating on your veranda from where you can enjoy the breathtaking views of the Olifants River valley, there are also numerous seating spots in the garden where you can leisurely get lost in a novel or just hide away for some quiet “me-time”…


Our Facilities


Our English Breakfast buffet is the perfect start to a busy day with fresh fruit platters, a bread and cereal selection, cold meats and cheeses, as well as hot breakfast with special requests made to order.

We offer a daily lunch menu or picnic baskets for our guests exploring the wonders of Klein Karoo.

For dinner enjoy exceptional local wine and traditional home-cooked cuisine meticulously prepared by our chef and served in the spacious, candlelit dining room of the 1902 Victorian homestead.

Please inform us of special dietary requirements in advance.

Farm Tours:

Join Bartel for early morning coffee in the gazebo before an informative, pre-arranged tour of this sustainable working ostrich, alfalfa and cattle farm.  Learn about the day to day activities in the life of a full time farmer, as well as the giant birds and the trials and tribulations of farming with them from one of the few experts on the ostrich industry.


Where to say “I do…”

We have a lovely Victorian gazebo in the centre of the garden with spectacular views of the Olifants River Valley and the Swartberg Mountains as a backdrop where the only thing more breathtaking will be you, the bride…

The same view can be enjoyed as you descend down the two staircases in front of the original homestead to the main terrace below where your happy groom and guests are awaiting your arrival. This is ideal for slightly larger wedding parties.

Alternatively, you can tie the knot in any church of your choice for a more traditional feel.
