Didier and Florbela are originally from Switzerland and Portugal. In October 2011 they moved to Jeffrey's Bay (Thornhill) to realise a dream that has been 10 years in the making...
"After 10 years of thoughts and planning, we got all the necessary ingredients together to make our South African dream come true. In June 2011 we bought a fantastic 120ha farm situated in Thornhill, Eastern Cape, between Jeffreys Bay and Port Elizabeth. In October 2011 we left our comfortable life in Switzerland and moved to South Africa to start our own business.
After having travelled all around the world, visiting more than 40 countries and being involved in the travel and tourism industry for more than 20 years, we had a good idea of what we would expect from our own lodge. In parallel, Didier's passion for cycling and his competition experience, guided us to the creation of a Mountain Bike Park which has been developed for all levels of riders, from beginners to professionals."
Our luxury accommodation lodge is on the Garden Route, only a 20 minute drive from Jeffreys Bay and 30 minutes from Port Elizabeth and PE International Airport.
The Lodge is perfectly positioned on the top of a hill, with 360° views overlooking the Indian Ocean, the indigenous bush and the mountains. Our luxurious thatch-roofed Lodge gives a real African ambiance, our wooden decked terrace with sweeping sea views is the perfect spot for a romantic dinner or simply to enjoy a relaxing sun-downer.
We invite you to stay in one of our two outstanding Safari Tents, discretely positioned to ensure privacy and tranquility. Alternatively you can relax in the utmost comfort in our luxury suite accommodation. Enjoy cooling off in our infinity pool or unwinding in the jacuzzi.
A timeless tranquillity emanates from the abundant bushveld and the presence of wild animals. Simply enjoy the romantic and peaceful surroundings of the Eastern Cape, where you can appreciate magnificent panoramas and nature at its best.
