We are a working sheep farm in the picturesque grass lands of the southern free state. We have the ideal location for a quiet break away or a lengthy time out! You'll have a definite unforgettable experience!
“While this oasis is far off the beaten track and tucked away, seemingly in the middle of nowhere, it is well well worth the 24 km of sand road to a place of unbelievable charm, solitude and bird-dense “quiet. Willem is an engaging and humorous teller of local lore and intriguing tales of life on this working sheep farm. We are definitely going back for a good, long plaas-kuier. Spending only one night there was sacrilege. The farm house is spacious with ample large rooms and the garden feels like Eden in the dry Karoo surrounds. It’s a place you want to “come home to!”. And if that isn’t compelling enough, there’s the round plaas dam, filled with slow pouring borehole water, rich in minerals and surrounded by large trees that reflect in the sun and starlight, making skinny dipping in the dark an absolute must!”
This historic church conversion is an unexpected delight for the traveller visiting and passing through the quaint town of Fauresmith. The voluminous interior offers its visitors an exotic haven filled with antique furniture, a freestanding fireplace for the cooler months, authentic objects d'art, a private and luxurious suite-like bedroom. The garden offers serene, peaceful nooks and space for relaxation, taking a dip in the farm-style pool, or dining alfresco.
“Great host and very nice room in a homely church. I loved the way the church was made into a very nice living space. A very good spot in Fauresmith and Fauresmith is a good alternative for a stop over heading to the cape or back. Will stay there again.”
