Getaway Summary
PRICE (unit):
from R 650
Safe, peaceful, stunning views, great affordability. Peace and tranquility like you've never experienced before. Conveniently situated between Knysna and Plettenberg Bay, close enough to enjoy all the activities in and around the area. <br /><br />Abundant with bird life, protea and fynbos. Some pet friendly accommodation, please inquire.You can be assured of great safety and security, as there are virtually no people/car/bike traffic passing through, maybe the occasional cyclist, 270 hectares of open spaces to breathe.Go on one of our walks (down to the Bitou River or easy walks on the farm). Book a silver service, gourmet picnic at our special, purposely built, and romantic picnic area with stunning views. Or ask the big question.<br /><br />Relax next to the pool with only the sounds of silence (or nature) around you. All accommodation has pool facilities. Bring your mountain bike and explore the farm as well as the mountain bike trails through the Knysna forest a few kilometres away.QQuad bike rides available on a neighbouring farm. <br /><br />See another neighbour milking hundreds of cows a day (buy your milk there if you want) or book a sumptuous cheese and local wine lunch with our wine making neighbour. Pick your own bunch of Protea and Fynbos. Order a picnic basket and enjoy at your leisure. Wireless internet access at reception/managers office or on the shaded patio.I confirm that we are about 22 km from Knysna and Plett, about 25 min drive from both. 13 km on the N2 from either side, then about 9 km inland (good gravel). Suited to normal sedan motors. Some units are pet friendly.

"Very peaceful and tranquil, if you love the beauty of nature, then this is the place to go! We stayed at the Bitou Valley House, it is completely private and has breathtaking views of the valley. We loved the spacious house with swimming pool and great barbeque area. We had everything we needed for a perfect stay. Thank you Amanda, you are really lucky to have all this beauty around you. We will visit again."

"Most wonderful hostess, Amanda, went out of her way to make our stay very memorable. Our dogs were safe and enjoyed the farm walks and boys loved the pool even in the rain. Thank you Amanda we would highly recommend Bitou house to anyone looking for a relaxed holiday but close to both Plett and Knysna."

"Our family (2 adults, 2 young boys and 2 dogs) really needed a good family break - away from it all. Protea Wilds was perfect. Enjoyed walks and swims on the farm as well as the drives to and from Knysna, Plett and surrounds. Amanda and Martin are fantastic hosts, very hospitable.Highly recommended if you need a real retreat."

"We really enjoyed our short stay at Protea Wilds. I wish we could've stayed longer. It was nice to relax in the pool and enjoy the wonderful views. The communal braai area is a good idea if one wants to be social with the other guests. The room was clean, adequate and had everything we needed. Thank you and we will definitely recommend Protea Wilds to everyone who is going that way!"

By Jane, South Africa
"We stayed at Protea Wilds Retreat on our way up to Port Elizabeth and we found a little bit of heaven. We live on a farm so we look for places that are peaceful and dark at night - and we found it! The views are stunning, the sound of silence stunning and the accommodation very comfy - all one needs to relax and recharge oneself."
