The cottages are set in the midst of a working farm. Guests are welcome to walk on the farm, and due care should be taken when doing so. Free wine and olive oil tasting for all our guests on the farm, this can be booked on check in with our reception. Jungle Gym and Play areas for children. Laundry cleaning by request. Baby sitting available by request. Farm walks.
A swimming pool with sun loungers, parasols and a deck overhangs the river providing the perfect place to unwind and take in Franschhoek's magnificent mountain views. Braais are provided on each cottage veranda. The fire place is supplied with a basket of wood, and additional baskets can be bought. Franschhoek offers a cycle hire facility, fly fishing, mountain walks and hikes, and general wine tourism. Wi Fi available by request at R30.
The stream which runs through the farm, is a tributary of the Franschhoek River, and plays a meaningful role in the supply of water to our farm, and to those down stream of us. Please respect the river and all its environs. A pair of Black Duck lives on the river, we have Cape Eagle Owls in the oaks surrounding us, and genet cats can make keeping chickens a hazardous matter.
The farm produces plums, pears, butternut, grapes and olives. We supply plums to export markets in Europe and the Mid/Far East, and the farm continues to win prizes and awards due to the efforts of our farming team.
The Franschhoek valley has something for everyone ... hiking, golf, horseriding and fly-fishing can be enjoyed in close proximity to the farm.
