Superbly nestled in a tropical garden with endless views of the Orange River Valley melting into the Kalahari semi-desert, La Bohème Guesthouse offers luxury B&B and Self-Catering accommodation within 10 minutes drive from Upington town-centre (residential area). Owner Evelyne is from Switzerland.The eclectic style of La Bohème is interpreted with a harmonious combination of European, African and Oriental influences. The essence of the décor, inspired by the natural surroundings and indigenous elements, reflects a subtle fusion of refined classic finishes and creative artistic expressions. Color touches as vibrant as the African sunsets add spice to the soft creamy and earthy tones echoed throughout the property. Soothing water features, relaxing music and delicate lighting emphasise the serene atmosphere of Evelyne’s inviting home.
