Getaway Summary
PRICE (unit):
from R 1,250 - 1,250
African Olive Country Estate is conveniently located a mere 1 km from Parys on a tarred road, close enough to pop in and out of town and far enough to be in the country. African Olive Country Estate is ideal for those who want to escape the rat race but still enjoy the comforts of all the fine dining and shopping close at hand.<br /><br />African Olive Country Estate, located at the gateway to the Dome Land World Heritage Site, provides luxury, self-catering accommodation for discerning guests in the form of two well-appointed luxury cottages and two studio apartments. All accommodation overlooks the farm and a century-old water channel from the Vaal River. Units are air-conditioned and stylishly appointed with cotton percale linen, antique furniture, Persian carpets, original artwork and complimentary sherry for that well earned night cap. The luxury cottages also boast a large fireplace that provides the best ambiance for those chilly, romantic, winter evenings.<br /><br />Being a working farm, one can expect the cows to amble by while relaxing on your stoep. Designed for adult relaxation in mind, we unfortunately do not cater for young children. So pack in your book, fill your cooler box and come and enjoy all the beauty that African Olive Country Estate and the Parys area has to offer.

"The place was clean and neat.However, I get the impression that the African Olive dream went walk about. Basic maintenance in the studio we stayed in are neglected. ie Broken toilet seat, blocked shower rose, powder milk in jar old and hard as a rock. Kettle not working."

"A lot of detail to small things that make a stay-over comfortable.Slightly out of town if you wanted to walk, but for us it was quite good."

"African Olive Country Estate is a hidden gem. Just around the corner from the quaint town of Parys, it offers an ideal position from which to explore the town and is also a beautiful stop-over point. The unit was well-equipped, with thoughtful additions such as matches, candles, newspaper to help light the fire, plastic bags, and dishwashing liquid - something I find many self-catering resorts fail to consider, as I often forget to bring my own. The furnishings were comfortable and unique, and the antique decor added a quirkiness and feeling of comfort. I was mesmerised by the sun setting over the rolling hills of this working farm, and we were all delighted by an ostrich, three goats, a couple of cows, a duiker, and even a solitary vervet monkey, who stole some of our watermelon! A lovely place!"
