Belvidere: Nestled on the Western Shores of the Knysna Lagoon, only 7 kms to Knysna CBD and a mere 5 minute’s drive to the Blue Flag beach at Brenton on Sea, this beautiful sandy beach stretches 7 kms to the Buffalo Bay beach.

In the village there is a sense of tranquility, of perhaps being transported to the English countryside. Winding country lanes are narrow, unpaved and lined by huge trees with dipping branches that partly obscure picturesque, historic homes.

Adjacent to the village is the newer Belvidere Estate which has the Manor House at it’s very centre. The basic design concept is for new buildings to harmonise with the 19th century Eastern Cape architecture of the existing historic Belvidere buildings. The aim is not to exactly reproduce a Georgian or Victorian village, but rather to create a variety of aesthetically pleasing homes well suited to modern living, that reflect our traditional Eastern Cape Colonial Georgian and simple Victorian architecture.

"Abundant walks, bird sanctuary and fabulous water frontage scenes and views to the infamous Knysna Heads where sailors can access the Indian Ocean.

Belvidere: A History: A major player to settle in Knysna was Captain Thomas Henry Duthie, late of the 72 Highlanders, who married Caroline Rex and, in 1834, bought the farm Uitzicht from his father-in-law George Rex which he named Belvidere, which is located on the west side of the Knysna Estuary. Here, in 1848, Duthie built a stone farmhouse and raised a family. He was also the driving force behind the building of the little Norman style sandstone Holy Trinity Church at Belvidere, which was consecrated in 1855. The original Duthie home is today the focal part of the Belvidere Manor Hotel, which boasts Belvidere’s oldest building, now The Bell Tavern.

Consecrated in October 1855, and was designed as a miniature replica of an 11th-century Norman church. The church sits in immaculate gardens, guarded by the same army of towering oak and gum trees that inhabit the rest of Belvidere. Dotted around the grounds are gravestones and memorials of generations of the Duthie family, as well as other prominent names from Garden Route history.
