And so to bed…

Turn down the lights; settle in for the night.

In a beautiful rural location, set amidst country gardens in the heart of a working farm, La Casa at Casalinga is both a home from home and a world away from the city of Johannesburg.

Our La Casa cottages are perfect for a romantic getaway for a few nights if you and your partner need to de-stress and reconnect. They also make the ideal counterpoint to a business trip to Jo’burg or Pretoria – the tranquillity and beauty of your surroundings will ensure you walk into every meeting filled with inspiration and creativity.

La Casa is ideally situated for access to Sandton, Randburg, the Johannesburg CBD, Fourways and Roodepoort. All of these places are within a 30-minute drive, which means you can easily escape back to La Casa once the working day is done.

The restful ambience, serene and peaceful setting, and the opportunity to give your health a real boost with a Leafy Greens juice cleanse during your stay mean that you’ll leave La Casa feeling refreshed and revived – and that you’ll return again soon.

Comfort Redefined

Each La Casa cottage is serviced daily and offers complimentary tea and coffee, bottled water and unlimited Wi-Fi.

Other features of the cottages include:

  • King-size bed
  • En-suite bathroom with shower and bath
  • DSTV Premium
  • Lounge
  • Fully-equipped kitchen
  • Real fireplace
  • Private patio and garden
  • Award-winning dining options on your doorstep: Casalinga Ristorante Italiano and Leafy Greens Café, plus a coffee roastery and health store at each restaurant. (Please see restaurant websites for opening hours, menus and booking information).

Italians don’t just make great chefs – we’re wonderful hosts, too.

La Casa is perfectly situated to allow you to explore and experience the best that Gauteng has to offer. From an onsite children’s playground, to walking, hiking and mountain-biking trails and road bike routes, there are lots of opportunities to get active.

Travel back in time and visit our ancestors in the nearby Cradle of Humankind and Sterkfontein Caves. Alternatively, you could choose natural history over ancient history, and visit Cradle Moon Nature Reserve, the Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens, the Lion and Rhino Reserve, or the Lion Park.

Lake Heia and Hartebeespoort Dam offer water activities to help you cool down after your adventures, or get a real lift by taking a ride in a hot air balloon. Gauteng offers more than enough activities to set your spirits soaring up, up and away!
