Activities at Thylitshia Villa Country Guest House

For something different and fresh country air, Thylitshia Villa is just the place when on a holiday in Oudtshoorn.

In between farm activities, sightseeing and scenic drives, guests can enjoy candlelit dinners, local sherry and schnapps and leisurely days by the pool on a Oudtshoorn holiday at Thylitshia Villa Guest House.

For quiet relaxing days on the farm, guests can have a tour of the Ostrich facility and later enjoy a braai (barbeque) while basking in great sunny weather on a Garden Route holiday. The night skies are a delight, clear and bright.
