About Us

The Thyolo House is steeped in history. It was once upon a time a farm house that was part of the adjoining Conforzi Tea and Tobacco Estates. The original house was built in the first part of the last century. It has expanded and has been renovated, but retains the charm that only only old buildings can have. The accommodation is of a high standard . All the rooms have en-suite bathrooms. A classical African farmhouse with garden and surrounded by tea farms and tropical forest. Its heritage and culture was carefully maintained. Its character remains that of the old farmhouse and its charm is evident. Renovations and extensions have made it more luxurious and comfortable and the ideal place to relax, enjoy your surroundings and let the stress disappear. 

With luscious tea gardens on one side and an indigenous forest on the other the house is approximately 20 minutes from Limbe and very close to the main road.  There are three large suites in the main house and a cottage by the swimming pool . There are self catering ,half board and full board options. In a separate wing there is a small restaurant/ cafe’ with healthy and delicious food that is the best cuisine in Malawi. Many of the ingredients are picked from our chemical free garden and excellent coffees and teas from our neighbouring estates. A tranquil haven away from the buzz of the city with easy access to Mulanje mountain and all the tea estates that surround the Thyolo House.
