Harterus – Overview

Harterus is situated in the small countryside town of Riviersonderend.  Only 140km east of Cape Town located on a loop of the Sonderend River.  Riviersonderend has a peaceful atmosphere and with it’s natural fauna and flora and Sonderberg Mountain Range it is the perfect getaway place to escape from the huzzle and buzzle and stress of the city.


The owners of Harterus, Pietie and Michelle Reichert wish to hearty welcome you to their small piece of heaven.  Whether you are on your way to Knysna (another 327,1 km to go) or George (another 267,6 km to go) or on your way home, come and rest at our comfortable overnight rooms.  Enjoy a glass of your favourite wine while having the perfect view of the Sonderend Mountains.
