What’s in the name?

The Klein Karoo (Little Karoo) is a semi-desert region in the Western Cape province, South Africa.

A spectacular 350-kilometre-long valley stretching from Montagu in the west to Uniondale in the east and is almost completely surrounded by mountains. The Klein Karoo is only between 40 and 60 kilometres wide, sandwiched between the imposing Swartberg Mountains (Black Mountains) in the north, and the continuous Langeberge (Long Mountains) and the Outeniqua Mountains in the south.

Before leaving South Africa, first to Thailand in 2017 and then to Greece in 2020, Frans & Jaco had a farm on the edge of the Klein Karoo as a weekend getaway from Cape Town. It is a place so very dear to our hearts. The arid landscape and rugged terrain around us reminded us in many ways of that beautiful part of South Africa so we decided to bring a little of that over to our new home in Porto Heli, Greece. And by doing so hoping to introduce and promote our favourite part of South Africa to our guests. Who knows; maybe one day a guest might visit that part of the world and make the Klein Karoo part of their trip, or maybe we even get to welcome a guest who has already been to South Africa and visited the Klein Karoo.

The Klein Karoo is most famous for the abundance of ostriches – its capital Oudsthoorn once known as the “Feather Capital of the World”. Other attractions include the impressive Cango Caves. More recently Oudtshoorn has become synonymous with the first and biggest Afrikaans annual art festival KKNK (Klein Karoo Nasionale Kunstefees).

Our facilities were designed and created with an outdoor environment in mind bringing you as close to nature as possible. Your private bathroom is partly open, and to an extent exposed to the elements like sun, wind and rain.

The hot water supply is purely solar water heaters.   Greece has plenty of sun all year round, however during winter in the unlikely event of 3 consecutive cloudy days, hot water might be limited.

Completely off the grid and eco-friendly with only clean renewable solar energy. Electricity supply is limited at pitches (6Amp) due to the capacity of the solar system.

High consumption “heavy” appliances are only allowed in the amenities room during hours of sunlight. Applicable charge (coin-operated) €1 / 10 minutes.

Please consider the above important points before booking to ensure a comfortable experience.

Maximum 4 people per pitch.

Only charcoal BBQ in the dedicated private fire pit (no open flame fires)

Quiet hours from 23:00 – 07:00

Garbage and Recycling bins are provided at the entrance gate. 

Please only use applicable bins clearly marked as follows:

Yellow – plastic & metal (packaging)
Blue – paper and cardboard
Green – glass
Black – non-recycling general waste

Please conserve energy for the convenience of all. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
Please save water! We are not connected to the grid so water is limited as it arrives by truck. No washing of cars or campers.

We all hate clingy shower curtains. We left our showers open for you to enjoy. If you would, please use the mop provided to remove excess water from the floor after showering to preserve the wood for years to come. Thank you.

Please fold away hammocks, and close doors and windows before leaving the site as we get strong unpredictable wind gusts.

Local farmers market every Thursday morning in Ermioni (20 minutes drive).

Most important RELAX and ENJOY your time in the “Klein Karoo”.
