Avolonte Lodge is nestled in the picturesque Grabouw/Elgin valley surrounded by mountains. From most of our cottages you have a stunning view on either the mountain, the river or the dam and in some cases, on all three.

The cottages are fully selfcatering fitted with TV, microwave ovens, fridge, kettle, cutlery, frying pan etc. All the interior decorating was done with antique cottage furniture..The basic features available in all our cottages includes an king-size bed,( singles on request ) leather couches, double-sized baths, showers, fireplaces,

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 45-60 minutes driving distance.or a relaxing evening out at a local sea-side restaurant, or the glitter and dazzle of a local casino.

Whether you’re a birdwatcher, a tree-hugger, or just in need of some leave-me-alone-I want-to-do-absolutely-nothing-in-luxurious-surroundings rest, this is the place for you. Hikers can choose from an endless number of trails leading to the most amazing mountain pools and waterfalls.

Stayed at A'Volonte while my husband did the Wines 2 Whales. Perfect location - close the the race village. Felicia made us feel very welcome and the house was clean and had everything we needed. We will be back.

We booked the River facing cottage and enjoyed a very peaceful evening! There was wood available for the fireplace inside and all the utensils we require was there. Thank you for a lovely stay!

Our stay at Avolonte was short but lovely! It is such a peaceful spot and we all slept wonderfully well. Despite the fact that there were four of us, we were all quite comfortable. And the duvets were magic!Thank you Felicia for sharing this spot of the world with us!

Over the past couple of years, I have visited Avolonte Lodge on a regular basis. This place is a little slice of heaven and has something for everyone.

The cottages are absolutely beautiful, reminiscent of something out of a Beatrix Potter book! One almost expects Peter Rabbit to appear in one of the doorways!

In the heat of summer, the cottages are beautifully cool due to the thatch roof.
They are spacious and decorated in a charming eclectic mix of rustic meets ye olde-world. There is an amazing attention to detail and there is everything at hand that one would need when you are on holiday.

The cottages offer beautiful views of the garden and are very private and secluded.

The gardens are beautifully land-scaped and offer a haven for the prolific bird-life. It is fantastic to sit on the verandahs and watch the birds flit from flower to flower going about their daily business. There are also cute squirrels scampering about.

In the evenings you can hear the owls calling and see bats busily catching their dinner. You can hear the thousands of frogs croaking down by the river.

The hosts are friendly and accommodating and go out of their way to ensure that you have an enjoyable stay and nothing is too much trouble for them. They are happy to give advice on restaurants, wine routes, beaches, hikes etc.

The Country club is just 2kms away where there is a wonderful restaurant on the edge of the Lake where, you can swim, sail or fish. There are also tennis and squash courts and even a bowling green.

It is not often that you find an unspoilt gem like this.
