A bit more about us ...

Swiss Villa Guest House is a graceful sandstone home built in 1913 and situated in the hamlet of Nieuwoudtville, in the Hantam Karoo, Northern Cape, South Africa. Our guesthouse is set in a beautiful garden, amongst established trees, on a wide expanse of lawn. Guests will be welcomed by hosts Chris and Margie and they will find clean, spacious rooms with comfortable beds. Snuggle up in white percale cotton linen under a thick duvet, in one of our 6 Bedrooms – 4 x Double with Queen sized beds and 2 x Twin bedded rooms. (Inclusive of our Self Catering Unit – Swiss Cottage)

Come stay with us at Swiss Villa Guest House

Come stay with us at Swiss Villa, whether it is for the peace, rest, or just passing through the area on a business trip. Or perhaps you want a special holiday – experience unique fauna and flora of Nieuwoudtville. Within a 20-kilometre stretch – from the top of Van Rhyn’s Pass, out past the Wild Flower Reserve – there are THREE biomes – three vegetation types (Cape Fynbos, Succulent Karoo and the Dolerite Sills). Nieuwoudtville is also the ‘Bulb’ Capital of the World! Consequently, one spin-off is our porcupines are the largest, both in size and population numbers, bulbs being their favourite food source!

For Birders, we have many birds to ‘twitch’ and add to your list; such as Ludwig’s Bustards and Namaqua Grouse to mention a few, also Spring and Autumn migrations. On the Geological side, we have a Glacial Pavement that is three million years old! The furthest northern point of the Table Mountain Sandstone complex is outside town and Oorlogskloof is the North-Western end of the Cedarberg Corridor. SO – there are MANY seasons and MANY reasons to come and be our guest – Nieuwoudtville’s rich diversity ensures that whatever season you come to visit – there will always be something to be explored!

With our clean air, peace and tranquillity, you can go home RESTORED, RESTED and REJUVENATED.
We are 350 kilometres from Cape Town on the N7 route – a comfortable 4 hour drive.
So, why not make us your next stop?
