Peace and Tranquility at Peace Valley Penny Hinde, South Africa
06 October 2008
We had a truly wonderful stay. As a family of 2 couples, a grandma and 2 little children, we fitted very comfortably into the Peace Valley home. It is beautifully decorated with some lovely little luxurious touches, which made us feel very pampered. The grounds are gorgeous and it is an absolute treat to walk around them - or find a peaceful spot to read a book. The kiddies loved all the farm animals and the very friendly labradors! For a break away from it all, it really is the perfect spot. next time my partner and I will choose it for a romantic get away! Lorna is an easy, friendly hostess, she will make sure that you are comfortable and happy. Ten out of Ten!

Peace Valley Guest House is set on a sprawling estate in the heart of Napier in the Western Cape. The Guest house offers superior 4 Star accredited bed and breakfast accommodation, as well as self-catering facilities for those wishing to have a DIY weekend away.
The two large dams directly in front of the main house are frequented by various waterfowl who will entertain you for hours with their endless games. Geese, an Ibis and a pair of Hadida are regular visitors to the dams where you will often find the two Labradors, Lex and Chelsea, taking their daily swim. A family of Guinea Fowl has adopted the garden and surrounds as their home and an otter has been sighted several times visiting the dams with the occasional Water Mongoose as well.
Peace Valley Guest House is all about relaxation, de-stressing and unwinding from the rigours of city living. We offer a tranquil haven where you can have a therapeutic weekend of massage, facials and reflexology. This must be pre-booked in advance. Breakfasts are wholesome and healthy, packed with crunchy muesli and health cereals, yogurts, seasonal fruits, fresh juices, fresh farm breads, cheeses, preserves and delicious croissants.
There is a fully fitted kitchen, laundry facilities and a swimming pool. An entertainment area and braai facilities are available as well.

Napier is a small town with a unique, rustic charm; many weekend visitors use this central point as a base from which to see the many sights and wonders the Overberg has to offer. The guest house is in close proximity to various small, trendy restaurants and pubs, as well as interesting shops, museums and art galleries displaying the work of several local artists.
