Situated on the banks of the Vaal River, in the heart of South Africa, straddling the border between the North West and Free State provinces and on the doorstep of populous Gauteng, lays a truly unique town, Parys.
The surrounding in which the town of Parys is situated, had its origin roughly around 2000 million years ago when a giant meteorite struck the earth just southeast of Vredefort in the Free State Province. The impact structure that was subsequently formed has come to be known as the Vredefort Dome: the oldest and largest meteorite impact site on earth, measuring about 200 km in diameter.
Combining old-world charm with modern comfort and convenience, À la Maison is a luxurious guesthouse with Victorian style furniture and decorations. Built in 1913, the house is one of the first to be constructed during the rebuilding of Parys after the Anglo Boer War from 1889 until 1902 left most of the buildings in town destroyed.
Centrally located in Parys, À la Maison is within easy walking distance of all the main attractions, shops, pubs and restaurants. In addition to exploring the sights and sounds in town, guests can also choose from a variety of different activity packages ranging from hiking and game drives to abseiling and river rafting. There is no shortage of exciting things to see and do in and around the tourist hub of the Vredefort Dome.
Guests looking for a quiet getaway instead may enjoy a tranquil afternoon in our secluded gardens, leisurely riverside walks and nights spent relaxing in front of the fireplace. À la Maison is a home away from home to those who want to escape the hustle and bustle of city life and experience the serenity of small town hospitality.
As an owner-managed establishment, we dedicate ourselves to exceed your expectations. We are looking forward to welcome you at À la Maison for an unforgettable experience.
