Sarel's Country House is located just outside of Paarl and is an age-old typical longhouse and dates from a time long before the Cape Dutch houses were built. It is a known fact that Sarel Cilliers, prominent Voortrekker leader, was born here. The house is on the edge of a small river, although not always with water; with huge oak and poplar trees in the garden, giving it a mystic and peaceful feeling. When sitting under these trees, the view onto the blue mountains adds to the feeling of tranquillity that this place departs.

Self-catering accommodation is available in 6 guest bedrooms which are each individually styled and furnished. There are 2 bedrooms which are en-suite; while the third and fourth bedrooms are attached as a family room with its own large family bathroom, but not en-suite. The fifth and sixth bedrooms (annex to the house) are en-suite with a shared private bathroom, the entrance to the bathroom is from 2 sides of each room, and there are 2 separate toilets.

The communal kitchen is fully equipped and features a 2-plate gas hob, dishwasher, and microwave. The antique lounge area is complete with the old fire hearth, which can also act as an indoor braai facility. There is also a TV provided. Parking is a short distance from the house, with a short walk across the river bridge to the front door of the house.

Sarel's House is within close proximity to many wine farms and wine tasting venues, historical sites, museums, and restaurants, to name a few. Outdoor sports activities are available on nearby farms, such as excellent and challenging mountain biking, hiking and trail running routes, as well as horse riding and freshwater fishing on a catch and release basis. Or simply stay in and make a braai under the large oaks in front of the house and enjoy the beautiful mountain views. Please note: NO outside visitors allowed.
