                  Friendly, welcoming and very pleasant host. Beautiful place to stay and escape from the city life. Highlight was the dogs and a peaceful stroll in the olive grove in the morning

                  Perfect for a weekend break. Many wine farms in the area and other activities to keep you occupied but also ideal for just relaxing on the patio next to the braai with a glass of wine.

                  We had a lovely stay in the family cottage. It was really clean and neat and the owner was very helpful. We ordered a breakfast picnic basket and it was more than enough for that two of us. A lot of thought went into it and we could not have been happier. Thank you for having us and we will definitely be back again.
