La Chaumiere Guest House

La Chaumiere Guest House

La Chaumiere Guest House

The original section of this comfortable, charming home was built in 1906. The African thatch provides a cool haven in summer and in winter the under floor heating in the main entertainment areas and the open fireplace make it cozy and warm.  It is surrounded by magnificent trees some 100 years old. The garden has numerous areas where guests can relax and its unique beauty remain even during winter season. The patio surrounding the pool is a great entertainment area where even smaller children can play in the water, off course under supervision.
