Belvidere Manor – situated in the Garden Route’s treasure trove of pristine beaches, lush indigenous forests and tranquil estuaries. South Africa’s most romantic – and most relaxed – getaway.
Enjoy the beguiling tranquillity of the west shore of Knysna’s lagoon. Relax by the swimming pool in our beautiful gardens (Belvidere Estate is a nature-lover’s paradise with more than 270 bird species identified), or retreat to the secluded comfort of the sunny terrace or cosy fireplace in your own Cape-style cottage. Mornings are made for taking things easy and the afternoon is designed for rest and recovery…
There’s every reason to stay at Belvidere. Trouble is, there’s absolutely no reason to leave.
Knysna’s smallest pub is housed on the site of the original Belvidere farmhouse, and a feature of the pub is the wine cellar viewed through the window in the floor, where freshly caught game would have been hung. With a yellowwood ceiling and ironwood block floor, The Bell is a quaint favourite of the Belvidere locals.
Relish pub meals served outside in the garden in summer, but in the winter enjoy the cosy warmth of the wood-burning stove. A wide selection of beers, including locally brewed Mitchells on tap, Cape wines and spirits are available.
