is situated in a peaceful and tranquil setting at the foot of the Langeberg Mountains in the Klaasvoogds Valley.
The farm is only 15 km from Robertson - so close to great restaurants, shops and wine estates. Also far enough away from hustle and bustle to feel totally relaxed.
Enjoy the viewing deck in the garden, swing in the hammock with a good book. Definitely make use of the outside shower in the old Fig Tree - it gives showering with a view
new meaning. Your hosts, Jackie & Andre look forward to welcoming you.
