About Die Laaitjie
Named for the children's 'tag' game, Die Laaitjie is so called as it nestles in the smallest and last of the Dassieshoek valleys in the Langeberg mountains. Despite being so completely remote, the farm is only 7 kilometres from the centre of Robertson.
The style of all the houses is simple and monastic, mostly decorated in an all-white, serene manner. All the houses have stoeps, an internal fireplace, as well as an external braai. There is also a communal swimming pool in the orchards, with a surrounding deck area.
A long, scenic gravel road leads to Die Laaitjie, a 330 Ha working farm that produces fruit and wine in the hand-crafted 'methode ancienne' manner. The farm is situated alone in a bowl made by the surrounding mountains. 25 Ha of the farm consists of peach, pear and apricot trees, all of which fill the valley with colourful blossoms during the spring months.
The mountains themselves are criss-crossed with hiking, walking and horse-riding trails suitable for all levels of expertise. Enjoy a gentle stroll to the river before breakfast, or spend a whole day exploring the ravines. Horse-trailing can be arranged in conjunction with a neighbouring farm specialising in horses.
