Certificate of Excellence
Nestled between oak trees, at the foot of the Langeberg Mountains, Aan de Oever Guest house welcomes you. Aan de Oever, 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. During your stay, enjoy our swimming pool, deck & BBQ area with a sundowner in hand from our honesty bar. We have an excellent selection of local wines form the Robertson Valley vineyards. You may prefer to sit in our garden, listening to the Koornlands River bubbling by and the many species of birds.
