    Schoone Oordt Country House is a charming country hotel in Swellendam South Africa, possibly the best of Swellendam accommodation, with 11 luxury bedrooms set in lush gardens, an intimate Conservatory restaurant, a sparkling saltwater pool and a passion for people, family, food, wine and the environment. The emphasis here is on unpretentious, unaffected luxury, elegance, quality and obsessive attention to detail.

  • The iconic Schoone Oordt Duck

    This duck was the table centrepiece at our very first Christmas in our newly purchase Schoone Oordt. Over time it has lost the tinsel and hat and gained a friend. Other than when children lay claim and carry it around the property, it lives very comfortably on the coffee table in the Bar/Lounge area.
  • Interesting Knick Knacks and Antique Pieces
