Very private self-catering ( self contained ) accommodation in Vanrhynsdorp South Africa.


Enjoy true Namaqualand hospitality when you visit La Rochelle, the Terblanche family’s small but lovely and fully-equipped self-catering accommodation in Vanrhynsdorp, South Africa. Vanrhynsdorp is in the heart of “flower country”. This part of the country changes into a riot of colour during August to October, when it is the well-known Namaqualand flower season.

You will feel very welcome at La Rochelle self-catering accommodation, but the Terblanches have mastered the art of being the perfect hosts: welcoming and attentive, but not intrusive. La Rochelle is en suite and fully equipped for self-catering purposes.

Make La Rochelle your base from where to explore the Namaqualand region around Vanrhynsdorp in South Africa. It is also ideal overnight accommodation if you are on your way between Cape Town and Namibia.

The beautiful Gifberg and Matsikamma mountains are always within view. The mountains around Vanrhynsdorp were inhabited by hunter-gatherer tribes and there are still many examples of rock art to be found. La Rochelle is the perfect destination if you want to explore these fascinating attractions.

"My wife and I enjoyed one fabulous evening here in August 2007. We were welcomed by the whole Terblanche family but were than allowed to enjoy the beauty of the quiet town without any interference. The Terblanche family were the perfect hosts. We felt welcome and appreciated, but their hospitality never infringed on our privacy. " andries erwee
