Champagne Valley / Central Drakensberg

  • Berg Bauhaus (German for 'Mountain Farmhouse') is a secure, pet friendly cottage situated on a working farm in the Central Drakensberg. With a magnificent view of all the major Central Drakensberg peaks, it is an 8 sleeper free-standing home overlooking three bass dams with beautiful walks and cycling on the farm.

    Being based in the heart of the Berg, the Bauhaus is close to all attractions that the area has to offer, with the Nest Hotel and uShaka Horse Trails being immediate neighbours. The Champagne Sports Resortís 18 hole championship course, as well as the world renowned Battlefields and Drakensberg Boys Choir are a short drive away. An abundance of wildlife and birds live in and around the farm, a constant reminder of the beauty of the Berg.

    There are many fine dining opportunities in the area as well as several convenience stores for those much needed holiday necessities.
