We recently stayed at the beautiful Kloovenburg Pastorie in Riebeek Kasteel and it was a super relaxing and peaceful. We drank wine, we ate olives, we read our books in the sunshine, we swam and we slept. It was exactly the treat we needed and it left us wanting to return to explore more of the charming Riebeek Valley.

Kloovenburg Estate is situated about an hour’s drive from Cape Town making it the perfect weekend getaway. We love that it’s as easy as hopping in the car on a Friday afternoon and arriving in time to watch the sun set over the lush gardens, pool and mountain – all while sipping on a glass of bubbly and easing into the weekend.

The Kloovenburg Pastorie is owned by Pieter and Annalene du Toit who have carefully restored it to the stunning guesthouse that it is today. Elegant, comfortable and lovingly put together to offer guests a stylish home away from home.

The guesthouse offers three en-suite bedrooms and one luxurious suite with en-suite bathroom and private lounge. All rooms come fully equipped with air-conditioning, tea and coffee making facilities, soft Egyptian cotton linen, gorgeous bath and body products from none other than Kloovenburg themselves, and access to the public areas which include a lounge, dining room, kitchen, gardens and pool.

Our visit started with a wine and olive tasting which was both informative and delicious and to say that the lop was in heaven, is a bit of an understatement – olives are his THING! This was followed by a leisurely afternoon spent soaking up some sunshine and taking a dip in the pool. And finally, after a long day of chilling, we headed to our room for the rest of the evening. We stayed in the Master Suite and it was absolutely gorgeous. It was spacious, private and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay.

We had such a lovely time at Kloovenburg Pastorie and we can’t wait to visit again. It is the perfect spot to stay at if you want a relaxing environment that you can easily escape to for a weekend. It is close to home and there are loads of things to do to keep you busy throughout your stay – wine tasting, olive tasting, walking and hiking trails, shopping, eating out and staying in. For us – another visit that includes a whole lot of nothing will be happening soon.  What a fantastic hidden gem Kloovenburg Pastorie turned out to be.
