Bastion House – Irene

Ideal home away from home

The rustic Dolomite walls ensconce the perfect marriage of wood and stone, perfectly harmonising, creating a warm and inviting interior where you can feel the history enveloping you.

Lavish in the omnipresent earthy essence and enjoy exquisite service while being treated like a revered family member. With rooms offering equal parts relaxation, and facilitation of creativity, this Avant-garde wonder is the ideal home away from home.

Growing up in this magnificently crafted home, the owners, Johannes and Antonette, have an all-enveloping love for, and pride in this abode. Being a young boy, watching his father meticulously choose every piece of dolomite to flawlessly fit into the next, like a live puzzle taking shape under his inquisitive gaze.

This proud family can not wait to receive you in this hand-crafted monument to love for the land and true authenticity. To share the stories of their heritage, and serve great food.

Also very aware of their carbon footprint, everything is responsibly sourced in from smaller personal businesses and hand-picked farms who share their sense of social responsibility. The Monthly longtable event is also a testament to the love of entertainment that is ever-present in the halls.
