Set in the hills of Pretoria, Castello di Monte offers 16th century Tuscan splendour in the heart of South Africa's capital city, something you'll immediately notice as you drive through rustic copper gates to reach the dramatic staircase, silk curtains and chandeliers of this luxurious guesthouse. Castello di Monte offers an idyllic and peaceful escape while still being close enough to access the city with ease.

Set off into the city centre of Pretoria for its shops, museums and galleries or head to nearby Johannesburg and Soweto to experience the rich drama of these two great historic cities. For something a little less adventurous, tee off with a round of golf on either of two nearby courses, catch up with some reading in the garden, have a swim in the pool, or relax in the sauna or steam shower.
