Imagine yourself enjoying afternoon tea on the veranda of a little thatched-roof Cape cottage, surrounded by forests and the high rises of majestic mountains outside a little village called Grabouw in Elgin Valley, internationally renowned as the valley of apples.

Avolonte means, "as much as you like", a place where you can enjoy the serenity and tranquility of a natural paradise. Not only is Avolonte the ideal place for a time of deep-cleansing rest, but it is a highly sought-after hideaway for honeymoon couples and travelers en route to the Garden route.

Only 45 minutes from Cape Town Airport, Table Mountain and Robben Island, it is ideally suited for a quick city breakaway, or use Avolonte as your home-base to explore the world-renowned wine-routes of Stellenbosch, Paarl and Franschoek, all within 45 to 60 minutes driving distance.

Standard features in all our cottages include an extra-length king-size bed, leather couch, a double-sized bath, shower, fireplace and underfloor heating.
