The house is a short distance from the village where you will be spoiled with lovely restaurants, quaint shops, beautiful art galleries and 2 craft breweries. Please note that due to our severe drought the pool may not be operational. We are doing our best but I would advise checking with us.
The living area opens up onto a lovely patio area which overlooks the pool and garden with the village and mountains of Riebeek-Kasteel beyond.

* The One: If you're looking forward to putting your feet up with a beautifully chilled glass of wine with a superb view then this is our absolute favourite place to come. You'll find it across the street from The Royal Hotel, on the corner.
* Beans About Coffee: If you are looking for a breakfast recommendation in town, then this is the place to come. There isn't a bad thing on the menu and the coffee is the best we have found. You'll find Beans About Coffee on Fontein Street, along the top side of the main square in town.
* En Bois: En Bois (meaning "in wood") are local craftspeople, creating and selling some beautiful South African made products; gifts, interior accessories, furniture and hides. You'll recognise their craftmanship on the keyring for your room.
* Eve's Eaterie: Before we start telling you what to eat at Eve's, I'll tell you that everything here is utterly delicious. A vibrant and fun courtyard serving some really beautifully cooked, homemade food. You'll find it behind Pick N Pay or at the end of Short Street, off to the right (depending on which direction you approach). Butter chicken is the family favourite, but we recommend that you eat from the top of the menu down to the bottom in order to be ABSOLUTELY sure ;-)
