Pezula Castle

Discover Pezula Castle

Pezula Private Castle is an exclusive beachfront villa situated on the southern coast of South Africa, near to the town of Knysna, on the Garden Route. The ultra-luxurious villa has direct beach access to the secluded Noetzie Beach, voted one of the top three beaches in South Africa.

The perfect spot for a family or group of friends to enjoy some quality time or celebrate a special event, this magnificent private residence has 5 spacious luxury suites in 3 separate villas, all with their own terraces overlooking the ocean and beach. It also has personal service for a dedicated team of staff including private chef and executive butler. You can rent all 3 villas for a large group, or the individual castle villas.

Gourmet meals will be prepared by your chef with the freshest of ingredients according to your own personal tastes and served in a variety of locations, including the beach. The bar will come stocked with your favourite drinks and South African wines.

Spend your days lounging at the heated outdoor pool, or on the secluded Noetzie beach. Enjoy a picnic or take a stroll to the edge of the meandering Noetzie River that runs through the Sinclair Nature Reserve. Back at the castle you have the option of working out in the private gym or drinking cocktails in the gazebo perched directly above the beach.

When you can drag yourself away from the castle, your private chauffeur can transfer you to the Pezula Championship course rated as one of South Africa's finest 18-hole golf courses. Or if you prefer to Pezula Hotel, Resort and Spa where you can enjoy further pampering at the world-famous spa, dine in style at Zachary's Restaurant or drink cocktails at sunset overlooking the Knysna lagoon.

Conveniently situated on the outskirts of the bustling lagoon-size community of Knysna, the surrounding area is one of great scenic beauty. The area has many amenities and conveniences including fine restaurants, coffee shops and bars, art galleries and museums.

The Garden Route area is a paradise for nature lovers and those who like the outdoors. The indigenous forests have hiking and mountain biking trails and the lagoon offers watersports, including sailing canoeing, fishing and skiing. Various other adventure sports on offer include abseiling, kite surfing, quad biking, paragliding and ballooning.
