Fodor's Expert Review Augusta de Mist

3 Human St., Swellendam, Western Cape, 6740, South Africa

This elegant Cape Dutch homestead, established in 1802, now serves as a comfortable retreat on 3½ acres of fynbos. The charming house still has original reed and mud ceilings, yellowwood shutters, and authentic metalwork. The interiors are contemporary and vibrant, and rooms are well appointed with antique furnishings and works by local artists. Enjoy a country-style cooked breakfast or baked goods made in-house.
