Oasis Bethulie Free State

Accommodation South Africa

The name Bethulie is derived from the French Bethulia, which means “Chosen by God”. A mission station was established in 1829 by the London Missionary Society for the local San people, and was then known as Moordernaarspoort (Murderers Pass) because of a battle between Griqua raiders and Sotho tribes. In 1833 the French Missionary Society took over control of the mission and renamed it Bethulia. In 1863 a town was established and called Heidelberg, which in 1872 was renamed after the mission station. The original mission buildings still stand, one of which is the oldest remaining dwelling built by European settlers. It was built by the Rev. Jean Pellisier, the first French missionary to be stationed here, and is currently home to the Pellisier House Museum.
Two spacious one-bedroom cottages each with bathroom en suite, open plan lounge/dining room/kitchen, and lock-up garage. Each cottage very comfortably accommodates a couple or single person. Fully equipped including fridge/freezer, microwave, tv, etc. A refreshing stopover en route elsewhere, or a place to unwind for a few days where nothing is expected of you but to be and enjoy.
