Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

Average time to visit

The best time to visit Swakopmund is between April and November, when it's cool and dry. Summer (November to March) is hot with heavy rains that sometimes make the roads to the coast tricky to negotiate. December and January see the main school holidays: much of the populace heads to the coast, so if you visit during this time you may find some shops and restaurants closed.

Villa Margherita is a comfortable and stylishly designed guest house in the centre of Swakopmund, conveniently close to the town's restaurants, activities and shops, with just eight individually decorated and very contemporary bedrooms and suites.

Explore Swakopmund’s surrounding area and dunes, perhaps visiting Walvis Bay with the opportunity to see seals, dolphins and even whales. Villa Margherita, opened in 2008, is an Italian-owned, stylish guest house perfect for those wishing to explore this quaint German town and partake in some of the many activities on offer here.

The guest house has its own excellent restaurant, Il Tulipano, which needs to be pre-booked and serves delicious and original food, or you can choose to visit one of Swakopmund’s many excellent restaurants – we are very happy to make recommendations!

The villa itself is an antique colonial villa in the heart of Swakpmund. Having only 8 bedrooms you really have the feeling of been in a boutique, historic hotel with wonderful attentive service. There is even a professional masseuse on site until 8pm every day to ensure the relaxation of guests.
