La Bastide is nestled at the foothills of the majestic Magaliesberg Mountains in the picturesque Skeerpoort Valley. Just minutes away from the Hartbeespoort Dam, our ‘country-style’ accommodation provides a peaceful, relaxing setting from which to explore the area. There is an abundance of activities available which include adventure sports, off road cycling, hiking, golf courses, ballooning, boat cruises, animal sanctuaries/rehabilitation, birding, wild life tours and many more.
La Bastide is an ACCOMMODATION venue and does not have facilities for entertaining and hosting large parties for dinner/braaiing. There are however a number of venues nearby for dining and functions and large parties of people.
La Bastide means 'The Country House' in French and this resonates with the quaint architecture and the wholesome environment. The guest rooms and self-catering cottages are adorned with handcrafted furniture and original art and are set within tranquil gardens that form a tribute to the plant and birdlife. The charming rooms and self-catering cottages are tastefully decorated, perfect for an overnight stay, weekend break or longer getaway. The year-round beauty of the surroundings makes La Bastide an attractive destination to spend winter evenings round the fireplace or summer days in the pool.
We are also just a short drive away from all the major wedding venues in the area including Leopard Lodge, Green Leaves, Red Ivory, Pecan Manor and Die ou Pastorie.
