About Us


Owen and Steven welcome you to Villa Palmeira, Bela Bela , a  guesthouse in the heart of the South African bush veld, namely the Waterberg.

The Waterberg District in the Limpopo Province is the undiscovered Gem of South African treasures, a land of intense beauty and colour reflected in the environment and its people. Over three million years of history has created a unique area which challenges the farmer, the adventurer and the investor.

A villa was originally an ancient Roman upper-class country house. Since its origins in the Roman villa, the idea and function of a villa have evolved considerably. After the fall of the Roman Republic, villas became small farming compounds, which were increasingly fortified in Late Antiquity, sometimes transferred to the Church for reuse as a monastery. Then they gradually re-evolved through the Middle Ages, into elegant upper-class country homes. In modern parlance 'villa' can refer to various types and sizes of residences, ranging from the suburban "semi-detached" double villa to residences in the wild land–urban interface.

A palm is an unbranched evergreen tree of tropical and warm regions, with a crown of very long feathered or fan-shaped leaves, and typically having old leaf scars forming a regular pattern on the trunk. A leaf of a palm tree is usually awarded as a prize or viewed as a symbol of victory.

WELCOME to VILLA PALMEIRA where you can relax in the villa, surrounded by palm trees and awarded with friendliness, hospitality, tranquillity and peace.

Our aim is to supply affordable, homely accommodation to our guests in need of a tranquil and healthy environment, serving our guest to their needs in an efficient and professional manner, ensuring a memorable experience whether travelling for business or pleasure.
