Venture Insight

Featuring stunning views of the Olifants River Valley and the Swartberg Mountains, this luxury retreat fuses the ambiance of a bygone era with warm country hospitality. The luxuriously appointed suites, cottages and villas are set on a working ostrich, alfalfa and wine farm that dates to 1902, with fine dining experiences offered in its Victorian homestead.


La Plume Guest House lies on the outskirts of Oudtshoorn, around one hour’s drive from the George Airport. Explore the wild natural beauty of the Klein Karoo accompanied by a gourmet picnic basket or get a behind the scenes look at life on a working farm in the “Ostrich Capital of the World” on a guided tour of La Plume.
