                          We received a warm welcome from our hosts. De Skaap has a beautiful location with lofty views of the rolling hills and dramatic skylines of the Overberg. Our house Jan Frederik was spacious and beautifully fitted which made for a comfortable stay. The kids enjoyed being part of farm life. We were close to Napier (only 4km) which made it a lovely base for the Patat fees. Many thanks for a wonderful stay.
