Cheval Vapeur Horse Farm
is situated in the heart of Cape Town’s seasonal wetlands in the Philippi Horticultural Area – a rural area consisting of vegetables and other farms on the Cape Flats between Ottery and Mitchells Plain. It is a wonderfully tranquil oasis and nature haven. Cheval is away from all crowds & large numbers of people (re Corona Virus).
The Farm offers 5 levels of basic, self-catering accommodation at very affordable prices.
There are 8 open-plan, single-roomed wooden cottages (which South Africans call Wendy Houses) sleeping 2 to 5 people each.
Cottages that sleep 2 people have a double bed, the others have bunk beds and other furniture. The cottages share two separate ablutions each fitted with a toilet, shower and basin – please note that depending on the cottage booked the distance varies to the nearest ablution but it is never more than 60m away. Each cottage has self-catering equipment: kettle, toaster, hotplates, microwave and small fridge – crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils are also provided.
The names of these cottages (with the numbers of people they can sleep) are: Club (4), Gate (3), Dam (2), Jane (5), Downtown (5), Gibson (2), Colin (2) & Johan (2).
