Accommodation Drakensberg

Welcome to this unique and magical destination, The Berghouse and Cottages.

Nestled on 512 hectares of mountainous property, privately owned by your hosts, the Piccione family, since 1996.

Stylishly decorated, comfortable country cottages, sprinkled lightly across the foothills of the Drakensberg Mountains overlooking the famous Amphitheatre Mountain, the Tugela waterfall, the highest waterfall on the planet, seen from the windows of the cottages in the summertime, and the massive spires of the Drakensberg and Maloti mountains.

Come and enjoy our warm hospitality, a wealth of knowledge of the region, on-site free hiking trails, guided horse riding, mountain biking, bird watching, fishing, and the unique one of a kind infinity rock pool.

All the trails start from the doors of the cottages.

These cozy cottages offer log fireplaces and bed warmers to keep you warm in the wintertime.

Offering you half board and self-catering accommodation, located halfway between Johannesburg and Durban in the Northern Drakensberg Mountains of Kwazulu-Natal, South Africa.

Cottages are serviced daily in the mornings by our friendly housekeepers.

“You will be suspended in moments of magic, like a balm to your troubled soul, it’s as though time stands still and one’s worldly concerns just simply melt away or perhaps carried off on the gentlest of breezes, on the wing of one of the beautiful birds that inhabit this estate, you will be left unencumbered to experience an exquisite lightness of being”

We look forward to welcoming you, your happiness is our pleasure!
