Welcome to the Free State’s best kept secret

The gorgeous village of Rosendal is set amidst the foothills of the magnificent Maluti mountains. It’s a photographer’s paradise, a hamlet where artist and writers find their inspiration.

The pace of life is slow here, it’s the perfect antidote to those needing a break from the big lights of the bright city.

Rosendal is just over three hours from Johannesburg, and two hours from Bloemfontein. It’s situated between Senekal and Ficksburg.

Rosendal looks forward to welcoming you – this gem of a village is one of South Africa’s most beautiful, unique villages – without a doubt, the Free State’s best kept secret.
