Parys, Northern Free State - Accommodation
African Olive Country Estate in Parys
African Olive Country Estate, located at the gateway to the Dome Land World Heritage Site, provides luxury, self-catering accommodation for discerning guests in the form of two well-appointed luxury cottages and two studio apartments. All accommodation overlooks the farm and a century-old water channel from the Vaal River. Units are air-conditioned and stylishly appointed with cotton percale linen, antique furniture, Persian carpets, original artwork and complimentary sherry for that well earned night cap.

Reviews for African Olive Country Estate
Home away from home
Great place to stay when in Parys. Friendly owner with beautiful "homey" rooms. A breakfast on Sunday would have been tops!
Super always come back again
Awesome and clean
Lovely cottages. Beautiful sunsets and friendly goats in the field and cow's.
it's home from home Awesome tranquility
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at African Olive. It is a true treasure of Parys and the crown jewel is the cottage. Its rustic elegance set against the backdrop of the working farm is delightful. The perfect cold and rainy winter weather welcomed in a weekend spent mostly in front of the fireplace with seriously good wine and company. I am not sure what impressed more; the incredibly well equipped cottage or more than enough firewood being available or the impeccable cleaning service every time the streets and restaurants of Parys managed to entice me to venture out into the cold.Thank you for your friendly welcome on a very rainy afternoon. I really hope to be back soon.
Thank you, it was very nice and quiet.
"A pleasant and peaceful place"
We had a wonderful time at the African Olive Country Estate. Especially the lodge we had, which breathes the friendliness and warmth we were looking for.
