Kloovenburg Pastorie

Located among the beautiful vineyards and olive trees of theKloovenburg Wine & Olive Estate, the Kloovenburg Pastorie offers excellent Victorian-style guesthouse accommodation in Riebeek Kasteel.

Situated just 80km north-east of Cape Town, Riebeek Kasteel is one of the oldest towns in South Africa. It’s a great holiday destination, whose climate is described as Mediterranean with hot and dry summers as mild winters.

The story Kloovenburg Pastorie, as an accommodation offering, began in 1977, when Pieter and Annalene du Toit purchased Die Pastorie (The Parsonage) from the local Dutch Reformed Church.

They have since transformed this historic property into one of the Riebeek Valley’s most sought-after accommodation options for weekend and overnight stays. You can expect a beautiful villa offering three superb air-conditioned en-suite bedrooms as well as a super luxurious suite.

It’s not just amazing facilities – many of their guests have left with many fond memories of hospitality they received from the owners and their staff during the course of their stay as well as the unique splendour of the area. Read more here…

Reviews from previous Kloovenburg Pastorie guests

“We recently spent 4 magical days at this luxurious old farmhouse. Set in a surrounding of rolling vineyards and olive groves, the house is beautifully restored, luxuriously furnished and immaculately kept. The swimming pool was a blessing in the heat of summer. The house is close enough to the restaurants (all excellent) and shops but set back from town just enough to escape. A visit to Kloovenburg for wine and olive tasting is a must. We cannot wait to return,” wrote Marc0112 on their TripAdvisor page.

CheshireGrannyontour added; “We spent two nights here as an escape from the water restrictions in Cape Town, and were surprised and delighted to have the exclusive use of this small and elegant house, a small but comfortable room and ensuite shower room, communal sitting room, but we were the only guests, lovely pool in private gardens, everywhere spotlessly clean and of the highest standard. Although no meals whatever are provided there is a communal fridge and a complimentary bottle of Kloovenburg wine was provided.”

“Highly recommended – a beautiful view of the valley, great service, comfortable, felt like a queen in the deluxe suite, perfect place for the bride, bridesmaid, photographer, makeup – thank you for a wonderful experience Klovenburg,” said Leaclare.

About us

Actually, Home Food and Travel offers a lot more than just reviews of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.  We also visit great destinations, receive advice from interior designers and stop to smell the roses and taste the coffee.

Our team of journalists are seasoned travels and love visiting the myriad of exciting places around South Africa.  Whether it is off the beaten track or in the heart of the top attractions of the country, we’ll be there,

Home Food and Travel advice on finding the right accommodation

So what is the right accommodation?  Well more often than not, it’s your travel budget that dictates the type of accommodation that you choose. 

Expensive is not always better.  Our team at Home Food and Travel will tell you that they have camped in areas with limited ablutions and had a wonderful holiday.  They have also spent a night in a five star hotel only to be disappointed because their expectations exceeded the experience.

The reason for your travels will also affect your choice.  A business trip requires different amenities to a beach holiday. 

Our articles, reviews and experiences can certainly help you make your decision.

Restaurants with a good mix of service, food and ambiance

To my mind a great restaurant offers three things – excellent service, great food and a wonderful ambiance.  Of these, service is the most important. 

No matter that the food is delicious and the setting delightful, poor service can ruin the occasion.  However, great service combined with mediocre meal and a plane jane restaurant can still be a pleasant night out.

We’ve eaten in restaurants that are really dirty but with incredible food and couldn’t help but give a rave review.  We’ve also hardly noticed what we ate because the setting was just amazing.

However, the best restaurants come with the best of service, food and ambiance.

Spas are the ultimate relaxation aid

How do you know when you have had a great spa experience?  The answer, of course, is when you doze off on the treatment table. 

Well that’s our theory anyway.  It also doesn’t take a grand location with enormous facilities for a spa to be really good

A small, personal spa that is owner run can result in the best massage you have ever experienced.  However, the grand spas in five star hotels offer unsurpassed facilities in an environment that just makes the stress in your shoulders and neck melt away before you even finish checking in.


You don’t have to be an adrenaline junky to enjoy an exciting experience.  In fact, what are commonly termed adventure activities usually have incredibly high safety standards and unblemished safety records.

Ziplining, bungy jumping and shark cage diving are all very safe.  It’s just that our mind tells us we are craaazzzzyyyy to be doing this.

On the road to great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities

If you’re driving, be safe and make use of all the wonderful farm stalls that populate South Africa’s open roads.

If you overhear somebody asking a lot of questions or see someone taking photos of empty bedrooms chances are it’s one of our Home Food and Travel team members.

We’re out looking or those great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.

See you on the road!
