Hunter's Country House (Relais & Chateaux)
Garden Route, South Africa - Classic 4
In the heart of the Garden Route lies Hunter's Country House set in beautiful gardens against the backdrop of the Tsitsikamma Mountains. The gracious original thatched, 100 year old homestead, houses beautifully appointed candle-lit dining rooms, cozy lounges with log-fireplace, a library and sun drenched breakfast room. Polished brasses around an inglenook fireplace, low beaming ceilings, gleaming silverware on an oak sideboard, and outside, a beautifully manicured garden with poppies, lavender and rose covered trellises make Hunter's an award winning country retreat.
Relax in the comfort of the antique furnished lounge or outside by the sparkling swimming pool. Stroll through the estate's private forest and enjoy the sights and songs of the birds. Five golf courses are within easy access of the estate, while the golden beaches of Plettenberg Bay lie just 10 minutes away.
