Bloomestate is ideal for lovers of modern design and tranquil surroundings. This contemporary guest house in Swellendam, close to the Route 62, is set in 6.5 acres so that its crisp and clean decor and contemporary architecture is balanced with open, natural space.
Nestled in the foothills of the Overberg mountains on the edge of the historic town of Swellendam, Bloomestate is the perfect home base from which to experience the region’s highlights: whale-watching, visiting the delightful wine estates of the Robertson Wine Valley and Route 62, wandering the many hiking trails of the Langeberg Mountain range, communing with the wildlife in the Marloth Park, Bontebok National Park or De Hoop Nature reserve.
The owners and hosts, Carla and Maarten van der Ven, along with their friendly staff, always ensure discrete, personal and professional service. To help sustain both the estate and the surrounding natural beauty, Bloomestate strives to use as many locally-made or Fair Trade products as possible. They serve local fruits and organic vegetables, use energy-efficient lighting and eco-friendly cleaning materials. The hot water is solar- heated and the waste is composted.
