A home from home
We love our home and we hope you will too! We are avid travellers and have experienced first-hand what makes one place stand out from the next. Crisp, clean cotton sheets, spotlessly clean accommodation, interesting decor, creature comforts and attention to detail are the things we believe make the difference between an average stay and an awesome one!
a valley to explore
Snuggled at the foot of Kasteelberg, the valley looks out towards the beautiful Elandsberg mountains. Our neighboring town, Riebeek Kasteel, is a quaint little place where you can enjoy a leisurely morning, indulging in some retail therapy - exploring the many bric and brac, coffee, clothing and decor shops on offer. You could also visit some of the town's historic sites like Allesverloren (the birth place of Jan Smuts), or sample the local olives and wines at Kloovenburg farm.
Return to the guesthouse for an afternoon dip or nap, before setting out again to enjoy a delicious dinner at one of the many local restaurants in the area. Francie can make recommendations and bookings for you. Just ask.
