Die Letterhuis is situated on the farm Aswater on the R407 in the Karoo.
The farm is a place of retreat. The house itself is a beautiful, cosy calligraphic gallery and guest house surrounded by art walks. At night it is enveloped by spectacular starry skies Die Letterhuis is one of three accommodation options on the farm.
For the more adventurous, we offer catch and release fishing, bird watching' easy hiking and swimming in the dam
