Kloovenburg Pastorie: One of the top accommodation offerings in Riebeek Kasteel

Kloovenburg Pastorie

One of the top overnight accommodation offerings in Riebeek Kasteel, the Kloovenburg Pastorie offers superb Victorian-style guesthouse stays among the vineyards, the figs and olive trees of the Kloovenburg Wine Estate.

The story of the Kloovenburg Pastorie traces back to 1977, when Pieter and Annalene du Toit purchased Die Pastorie (The Parsonage) – one of the most recognised properties in Riebeek Kasteel, from the Dutch Reformed Church.

Over a period of 33 years, the du Toits transformed this landmark property into one of the Riebeek Valley’s most luxurious overnight accommodation options – the Kloovenburg Pastorie.

It is a beautiful historic property that has been affectionately restored and transformed into a beautiful villa, offering guests to the Riebeek Valley three superb air-conditioned en-suite bedrooms and one super luxurious suite with en-suite bathroom and private lounge area.

Along with the luxurious accommodation, the Kloovenburg Pastorie also has relaxing public spaces, including a well-appointed lounge, dining room, kitchen and a sparkling pool with loungers to relax on.

There are four luxurious rooms for guests to choose from. In each of these suites, it is not hard to notice the attention to detail, which extends in every aspect of the Kloovenburg Pastorie.

Expect to find the décor in this classic Victorian-styled home an eclectic mix of French and Victorian. The bedrooms have high quality percale bed linen and the bathrooms luxurious olive-based bath products.

All the rooms are air-conditioned and come with DStv; a Coffee/Tea station with homemade rusks in winter and homemade biscuits in summer. Bookings include a R60 Breakfast Voucher p/person at Beans about Coffee as the guesthouse does not serve breakfast.

The Kloovenburg Twin Room is furnished with two Single beds and an en-suite bathroom with a shower and toilet. It is ideal for those stopping over in Riebeek Kasteel and needing a comfortable place to stay the night.

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!
