Eco Lodges

Whether you’re looking for a peaceful secluded romantic break complete with hot tubs and al fresco dining, or for a holiday that keeps the whole family entertained, consider staying in one of our luxury Eco lodges.  The perfect weekend getaway.

In summer enjoy our tennis courts on location and check out the trompe d’oeil artwork . Right on your doorstep! The Eco lodges offer magnificent views of the surrounding mountains.

What’s so ECO ?

The eco-chalets are designed to leave a minimal environmental footprint. The sun is used for heating both building and water. A smart system uses the heat from the roofspace to warm the floor. The mass of the building will retain this heat. For the colder days in winter a clean air logfire with wetback will fill in the gaps. The waste water of the chalet goes to a worm tank. We have our own sustainable firewood supply on the 5ha section. All our light fittings are low-energy with some fantastic LED’s.

Our guests can’t believe how warm and cosy the eco lodges are, truly a novelty !

A bonus for staying in an ECO lodge is the use of your own private woodfired cedar hot tub (extra charge). Relax under the stars listening to the frog choir and the more pork owls. An experience not to be missed.
