Location

Fauresmith, Free State, South Africa

The Rooi Granaat Guest House is located in Fauresmith, Free State, South Africa. Fauresmith is the second oldest town in the Free State province of South Africa, and is 130 km south west of Bloemfontein, the capital of the province.

This small town is exemplary of the rustic charm of country living - no traffic lights, a central business district spanning less than one kilometer in diameter, quaint shops and cafés, distinctive warm and friendly South African hospitality, and an overall air of peace and quiet.

The town is well known in equestrian circles for the annual National Equestrian Endurance Race, during which the horses and riders must complete a gruelling 205 km course during the three days of the event. Fauresmith is an ideal stopover or destination for the weary city dweller who is eager to spend time closer to nature without sacrificing all the creature comforts of contemporary life.
