Fairview Estates Self Catering Accommodation In Fouriesburg

With an endless canvas of wide-open skies, majestic sandstone cliffs and rolling hills, this part of the Free State more than lives up to its reputation as the jewel of the Eastern Free State.

Getting away from it all - Fairview Estates lies at the end of a 19km valley, described by some as the most beautiful valley in the Eastern Free State. This farm is situated between Fouriesburg and the very popular, proudly South African town of Clarens. The surrounding sandstone cliffs, together with magnificent views of the Maluti Mountains offer our guests the opportunity to experience the beauty of the Eastern Free State at its finest.

Fairview Estates offer our guests four different accommodation possibilities: The secluded De Rust Farm Cottage, the converted grain silos called the Twin Towers, the interesting converted caravan on the wall of one of our dams called the Damn Caravan and Opstal the beautiful, stately sandstone house that dates back 100 years. Full DSTV premium package and flat screen tv in the Twin Towers unit. De Rust and Damn Caravan don't have tv's.

Opstal sleeps a maximum of 12 people in 6 bedrooms (2 en-suite). All bedrooms are supplied with electric blankets and each one has an electric oil heater. Beds are dressed with white percale linen. All bedrooms are decorated with a tartan, houndstooth and check theme.
Three Bathrooms: Good quality bathsheets are supplied.
Kitchen: Fully equipped (kettle, microwave, fridge/freezer, bar fridge, gas stove, toaster, coffee machine, high quality maxwell and Williams crockery)
Dining Room: Formal with a 10 seater antique dining room table. A Washing machine and dryer are available on request.
Stoep: Enormous verandah with built in braai (cane furniture as well as 6-8 seater garden bench) as well as weber braai.
Lounge: Spacious with fireplace. Lounge has 1 leather couch, 2 leather wing backs as well as fabric 3 seater couch-antique furniture finishes this room off. Lots of interesting artwork provide a feast for the eye.  There is also a 12 seater steel garden set under a willow tree.

We have Immaculate views on horse paddocks with an extensive mountain backdrop. We offer organised horse riding lessons from professional Nadja Steil. Oh yes, and look out for our one-eyed Alpaca, Bok Bok, with cria, La-Fawnda, providing some entertainment on the side... and then old Bles as the on-site pet - she is our shy, but good natured, sheep dog.

This farm has a rich history with regards to the Boer War, as women of the area and their livestock fled from the enemy and took refuge in the overhanging caves, situated on Fairview Estates. Quite a few Bushmen drawings were also found on the sandstone overhangs on this farm.

The 3500 hectares of farmland and mountains are there for hiking or just to discover your own little paradise - like the stream with a succession of whirlpools that continue for more than a kilometer - popularly known as the farm's own Potholes. Guests from all over find it interesting to experience this working farm, especially with the mesmerizing, unique alpacas grazing freely on the farm. Fairview Estates also farm with Bonsmara stud cattle and we also plant maize and beans. As an extra bonus this farm experiences regular snowfalls during the cooler months right up to September.

We recently started breeding appaloosa horses and the stud name is Manchado Appaloosa Stud.

Lesotho's border is only 40 km away and guests frequently visit the interesting Katse Dam as well as Afri-Ski. Other popular activities in the area: Golfing and shopping in Clarens as well as white water river rafting.

All of the above offer the elements for the ideal weekend breakaway. Fairview Estates gives you the freedom to touch the sky.

Why the $elect Stays initiative?

  1. Encourage and boost local tourism through making holidays more affordable.
    This is achieved by offering locals a 15% saving. The same 15% that would have left our shores had it been paid as commission to an International Booking site.
  2. Reduce the dependancy on large International Booking sites.
    This is achieved by building up a loyal following of verified users who we will market to on an exclusive and regular basis to maximise the opportunity.
  3. Ensure more money stays within local tourism to benefit us all.
    It is no secret that the large International Booking sites pay no or very little tax to South Africa or Namibia. By taking back a little more control we boost our own economy, and in particular, our local tourism. This is good for us all.
    Read this article on how the Australian holiday accommodation sector is suffering in the same way.
  4. Exclusive.
    Only listings on Stays can participate, which means less competition for bookings.
How it works for accommodation-seekers:

Anyone can register as a $elect Stays member.
There are no costs involved to register as a member.
On registration, we issue them with a member number.
They use their member number when they send an enquiry.
The number is verified automatically BEFORE the enquiry is sent.
The property is notified on the enquiry that they are a verified member.
Property ensures that the quote includes a 15% saving.

Terms & Conditions

  1. The property (you) must offer the 15% saving to all verified members
  2. Verification is done automatically at the time of an enquiry. It is at the property’s discretion whether to offer the saving for a telephonic enquiry. (As you have no means to verify the membership number, it is advisable to get them to do a formal enquiry so they can be verified).
  3. If the property is currently running a "Special" greater than 15% then the "Special" price will apply. (No further savings needs to be offered). EXCEPT in the case where the "Special" is lower than 15%. In that case the 15% will apply.
    Example: A property offering a 10% discount, must offer an additional 5% discount to valid members - so they get a total 15% saving.
  4. The property must offer valid members the saving all year round. (Properties that pick and chose in which seasons to participate run the risk of being removed from the programme completely. Allowing selective participation defeats the integrity of this initiative).
  5. The property must not inflate the price before the 15% is applied. Prices displayed should be the rack rate. (The official or advertised price of a room).
  6. The property must honour any bookings made while the property was participating as a $elect Stays property.
  7. The property must honour the agreement and the spirit in which the initiative is designed to benefit local tourism.
