In Swellendam, in the Western Cape, nicely situated on the Garden Route, between Mountain ranges, nature reserves and the ocean, La Sosta Guesthouse is an invitation to immerse oneself in nature and beauty whilst enjoying true Italian hospitality.
Our beautiful town of Swellendam is the third oldest town in South Africa where you can discover plenty of colonial heritage, walk among lush green on incredible paths in the nature reserves and whale and bird watch at the nearby De Hoop nature reserve. A true haven.
Welcome to paradise!
We offer accommodation in six double rooms, three of which are traditional rooms and three are deluxe rooms.
All six rooms have their own private entrance from a covered porch with a table and chairs, so guests can relax with something refreshing to drink, whilst enjoying the beautiful outdoors. There is a swimming pool, equipped with loungers for guests to enjoy.
La Sosta offers a fine dining experience with tasting menus which change depending of the seasons and availability of produce.
