Please note: Our review of this property has not yet been added. Watch this space. We're working on it.

As a tailor-made tour operator, we often have to get creative when designing your perfect itinerary.

For example, your travel consultant might add this property to your itinerary if:

Location is a significant factor
It offers a unique feature that will enhance your experience
This is a last-minute booking and room availability is limited
Cost is a factor and you'd rather splash out on another part of your trip
This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

When designing your custom itinerary we have much to consider not least of which is the value proposition of every product and service included in your quote. In all cases we strive to give you the best experience possible within your budget so please feel free to ask your travel consultant to share their reasons for including this property in your itinerary.

La Plume is on a working farm and hosts, Karin and Bartel, are your genial entrance into the world of country living with its fresh air, early starts, languid evenings, great open spaces and deep personal connections.

La Plume Guesthouse has 12 spacious rooms, decorated with a quaint combination of Victorian antiques, Karoo florals and chunky wooden furniture. All have en suite bathrooms, air conditioning, satellite TV and complimentary tea/coffee. A cottage has two suites with separate living areas ideal for families or couples travelling together

Breakfasts are a feature of Karoo farming life and yours will keep you going throughout the day. Dinners must be pre-arranged but they are well worth the forethought and it means you don't have to drive into town.

Bartel is the farmer and he will take you on an interesting tour of his commercial farm which stocks ostriches, cattle, vines and alfafa. Oudtshoorn, with many restaurants, galleries, shops and museums is a short drive from the farm.
