overview

Come and enjoy a few days or more in the most gorgeous part of the South African Winelands. Our cottages, located on a working wine farm with spectacular mountain views, are the perfect place to relax and get away from it all. Our guests have a choice of three quaint cottages beside the Franschhoek River, which runs along the border of the farm. Walk along the river, meander through the vineyards and absorb the extraordinary beauty of your surroundings. Later, relax on the stoep and sip the wine from the very vineyards spread out before you.

The three cottages offer new, modern amenities, with en suite bedrooms and fully equipped kitchens, and there are terraces on both sides of each cottage, lending themselves to comfortable indoor and outdoor living. A good South African terrace braai (BBQ) is very popular among cottage residents. To cool off on those hot summer days there is an enticing swimming pool in the nearby pear orchard.

The cottages are private and peaceful, yet conveniently close to other Franschhoek wine estates and Franschhoek Village with its famous restaurants, great gift shops, art galleries, museums, the farmer's market and the buzz of activities in the village.

Drinking water comes from deep boreholes and is clean, fresh and cool.
