Babette is a unique, Provencal-style home with three garden cottages and a romantic room with a view in a separate part of the main house. Built-in French style the house and rooms are full of lovely details, wooden beams on the ceiling and robust stone floors, all to create a homely and romantic atmosphere. The beautiful lush garden has a saltwater swimming pool and plenty of quaint corners for you to sit and relax.

Wake each morning to a beautiful breakfast served on our patio, or if you like on your private patio. We are proud to serve daily changing homemade surprises as well as full breakfast made from fresh local produce.

Babette has four individually styled rooms; Olivier is our African style decorated cottage with twin beds and private patio. It is the only cottage with sleeper couch for an extra person and has limited self-catering options.

You have your own entrance and lovely Mountain and garden views from your balcony. Rose is our double room, inspired by flowers. It stands on its own and from your private patio you have lovely mountain views.

                  A well equipped room, cheerily decorated, a decent sized bed - I am 6feet 4ins - an email offering to book a restaurant (which we accepted), overall the kind offer of a glass of wine when our bags were brought in from our car.General impression was of a neat, compact compound.The welcome by Wim and Nicki was sincere, and to finish off our brief stay, an excellent breakfast served on the veranda.

                  We spent 2 nights in Babettes Bed and Breakfast which was much too short. This location is an oasis in a wonderful little city. The location itself is extraordinary, the breakfast exceptional, the rooms are unique, the garden area is singular. And the loveliness of the landlords is absolutely remarkable. We can 100% recommend that location. Yes, we will come back very soon.

                  What a delightful couple hosting this beautiful B&B! The pool was a God-send with the heatwave. We stayed in -A Room with a View- & it had a lovely view overlooking the immaculate garden & pool. The delicious breakfast was served al fresco on the patio overlooking the pool & gardens. The staff & Billy the dog are delightfully friendly & eager to please. Thank you for a lovely stay - we hope to be back to explore more of this wonderful area.

                  We stayed at Babette on our way back to Cape Town.Nicky and Wim were excellent hosts!The cottage was spotless and quiet.Their attention to detail was noteworthy and reflected in their immaculate garden and pristine pool.Breakfast was a scrumptious affair with a large variety of hot and cold options.This accommodation is highly recommended!

                  We only stayed at Babettes a single night between Christmas and New Years. Had we known what a lovely place it was and what great hosts Wim and Nicky are - we would have booked a longer stay. The house and garden with its cottages and pool was ideal for us with kids age 17 and 11. Only one place for me to stay in Swellendam. Hope to come back.
