CHALET AVAILABILITY

THE CHALETS

Berghoff has four self-catering chalets: Erica, Disa and Barbi on Berghoff itself and Klipspringer on the adjacent farm, Osdam. The chalets are situated on our commercial protea farms in the picturesque Olifantsrivier mountains above the town of Porterville. We welcome nature lovers and ask that all visitors please treat the area with respect. The chalets are situated some distance from one another, and guests are requested to keep music and noise to a minimum as most people visit our chalets to relax. We encourage mountain biking along the farm roads and hiking in the veld. The dam on Berghoff is perfectly suited for swimming and boating – a rowing boat and two canoes are available on the dam for use by our guests. Because of the altitude, we are substantially cooler than below the mountain, and even summer nights can sometimes be chilly. We have high rainfall in the winter months, and occasional snow – perfect for a fireplace, red wine and a good book - although sunny winter’s days are abundant. In summer the sun can be harsh due to the altitude and sun block is highly recommended.

The wild beauty of Berghoff

Berghoff is blessed with abundant water and natural beauty, which has been shared with many visitors through the Berghoff Chalets. At an altitude of between 850 and 1000 meters above sea level the farm has a relatively cool Mediterranean climate, with an average rainfall of more than 1100 mm per year. Snow in winter is not uncommon. The soils are generally sandy, being derived largely from weathered sandstone. A shale ridge adds some localised variability. The farms are founding members of the Groot Winterhoek Conservancy and sustainable use of the environment is therefore a high priority. The area has abundant wildlife, including klipspringers, rheebuck (ribbokke), black eagles, baboons, grysbok, steenbok and elusive leopards.
