Chef Elton and Anja Flack & family
This property the farm Zomerlust, where the guesthouse Zomerlust Gastehuis. is situated was transferred on 1 May 1792 from the Dutch East Indian Company to its first private owner, Johan Meyer. This property, like all others in the historic center of Paarl, was lined along the “Caapse Wagenpad “ today Main Road. The house faced Main Road and the farms stretched either up the slopes of Paarlberg or down to the Berg River. Zomerlust was an active farm from 1792 untill 1992 and was always a property of some 4,8 hectares. Archaeological research showed that the first house was probably built between 1792 and 1800 a single storey Cape Dutch home. Some evidence can be seen looking at the fireplace in the room next ton Die Kraan and the only Cape Dutch window in the current Tool Room… We were privileged to carry on with a 113-year-old heritage. They made significant contributions to Paarl and South African history. Due to the connection with “Die Paarlse Wijn en Brandewijn Maatschappij” the rooms were given brandy names. The main suite, No 4 is therefore named, Paarl Rock….
The original farm currently consists of two properties namely the upper part, with historic buildings of ZOMERLUST GASTEHUIS and the Rozenfontein buildings. The lower part, now called Zomerlust Landgoed, is being developed according to architectural guidelines aimed at preserving the old Paarl style whilst promoting indigenous gardening
