La Plume offers stylish luxury with a diverse range of accommodation from a Cottage, Private Farm Villa, Luxury Rooms to Luxury Junior Suite, Honeymoon and Superior Suites. With private entrances, sunny verandas and elegant, comfortable antiques, each of the 20 individually furnished air-conditioned rooms and suites offer satellite television, free WiFi, mini bar and abundant comforts.

Apart from the private seating on your veranda from where you can enjoy the breathtaking views of the Olifants River valley, there are also numerous seating spots in the garden where you can leisurely get lost in a novel or just hide away for some quiet “me-time”…


Our English Breakfast buffet is the perfect start to a busy day with fresh fruit platters, a bread and cereal selection, cold meats and cheeses, as well as hot breakfast with special requests made to order.

We offer a daily lunch menu or picnic baskets for our guests exploring the wonders of Klein Karoo.

For dinner enjoy exceptional local wine and traditional home-cooked cuisine meticulously prepared by our chef and served in the spacious, candlelit dining room of the 1902 Victorian homestead.

Please inform us of special dietary requirements in advance.

Interior Design

The interior and spatial design of La Plume Boutique Guest House is one of Karin’s passions.  Her love of space, colour and texture serves her well in the design and renovation of internal spaces, including structural alterations, furnishings, fixtures and fittings, lighting and colour schemes.  Her eye for detail and enchanting antiques adds the finishing touches to the individually furnished rooms and suites as well as the communal areas, creating an atmosphere that is reminiscent of yesteryear.

Farm Tours

Join Bartel for early morning coffee in the gazebo before an informative, pre-arranged tour of this sustainable working ostrich, alfalfa and cattle farm.  Learn about the day to day activities in the life of a full time farmer, as well as the giant birds and the trials and tribulations of farming with them from one of the few experts on the ostrich industry.

Our Philosophy

Our experienced team is dedicated to ensure you get the best Klein Karoo experience possible.

“Our philosophy is exclusivity and exceptional comfort with warm, personal attention in an environment conducive to the art of gracious living. La Plume welcomes you.”
