Area Information:
Swellendam: The third oldest town in South Africa, celebrated its 250th anniversary in 1995. This charming town, nestling at the foot of the Langeberg Mountain, is famous not only for its young berries (braambessies), but also for its eclectic architecture, fascinating past and great outdoor life. The Koornlands River, ancient oak trees and stately, whitewashed homesteads add to its charm.
Only 7 km from the town is the Bontebok National Park. The nearby Marloth Nature Reserve offers day walks and overnight hiking trails through the Langeberg Mountains.

The Robertson Wine valley, one of the Western Cape's best kept secrets, embraces the districts of Ashton, Bonnievale, McGregor and Robertson and is less than two hours' drive from Cape Town. It is the home of Champion horses, but it is also known for its abundance of roses, making it truly The Valley of Wine and Roses.
Adorned by the beautiful Breede River and Langeberg Mountains, the Valley's beauty lies not only in its special location, but also in the relaxed hospitality of its people ? travelers will visit the wine route and enjoy a sense of discovery.
The Robertson Wine Valley has 32 members, including 11 co-operatives, 14 estates and 7 private producers. These members all produce some of South Africa's finest wines.
Portuguese seafarers named Africa's southernmost tip "Needle Cape" because here their compass needle pointed straight to the north with no deviation.
Cape Agulhas, the southernmost tip of Africa and natural beauty, is more or less 100 km from Jan Harmsgat Country Guesthouse. A massive lighthouse, built in 1848, is worth visiting, it is still operational today, warning ships away from the treacherous coastline. The powerful lights have a range of almost 60 kilometers, the tower can be visited and there is a museum and a tea room.

Property Facilities:
Swimming Pool, Hiking, Fishing, Free Mountain Biking, Wine Tasting, Farm Drive

Attractions:
Both Bonnievale and Swellendam are a 20-minute drive away.
