Welcome to Die Ou Lady

Due to its Victorian-style elegance, rich history and being one of the first houses to be built when the historic town of Calvinia was founded in 1851, the current owner renamed her, “Die Ou Lady”. English translation: “The Old Lady”. You will feel right at home by the warm, country-style hospitality you will receive from the moment you are welcomed at the door until the time that you leave. You will surely take with you warm and fond long-lasting memories of Die Ou Lady guest house, situated in the heart of the Hantam.

What our visitors say

Just driving through and discovered Die Ou Lady.......and was blown away by the Vegan Section on the menu. Had the best vegan burgers. So excited....better than some big cities where it is hard to find decent vegan options. Thank you.

Dit was regtig n heerlike 2 dae. Vriendelike, hulpvaardige en innemende Eienares en personeel. Netjiese, pragtige kamers. Ongelooflike heerlike ontbyt en etes tot 5:00 nm aangebied. Rustige omgewing al is dit net n hanetreetjie van die hoofpad.
