Aan De Oever Guest House

Nestled between oak trees, at the foot of the Langeberg Mountains, Aan de Oever Guest house welcomes you.

Aan de Oever, part of Aan de Leisure Collection, meaning on the river bank, is a house built in the Cape Dutch style, like many others in historic Swellendam, the third oldest town in South Africa.

If you want a perfect setting for a holiday, honeymoon, business trip or a base from which to travel, we offer you an unforgettable experience with our famous breakfast to start your day. Swellendam is steeped in history & offers you, natural beauty with spectacular views.

Aan de Oever has exquisite accommodation in thirteen elegantly furnished bedrooms and suits, each with its own bathroom and private entrance. We have wonderful family and group options, including a few Self-Catering Cottages here in Swellendam.

During your stay, enjoy our swimming pool, deck and ‘braai’ area with a sundowner in hand for golden hour, “cheers-ing” to the setting sun! We have an excellent selection of local wines form the Robertson Valley vineyards, our choice of beer, cider and a few soft drinks, just chat to our ‘Aandeawesome’ team who are always ready with a big smile to assist you. You may prefer to sit in our garden, listening to the Koornlands River bubbling by and listen to the many species of birds that frequent our garden. We are within walking distance of the museum, restaurants, art galleries and shops and we can provide you with all the information about actives in and around Swellendam. Swellendam is situated on the Garden Route, half way between Cape Town and George. It is thirty minutes’ drive to the well known Route 62 and roughly an hour’s drive to Cape Agulhas, the most Southern tip of Africa. The De Hoop Nature Reserve is about an hour and a half’s drive, a wonderful place for a day trip. The Robertson Wine Route is only half an hour away via Bonnievale.
