An authentic farm hideaway, set against the slopes of the Paardeberg mountain, only 1 hour’s drive (75km) from Cape Town. Close enough to get to, yet a perfect place to get away from it all. A humble, rural retreat where you can quickly sweep away the stress of city living and enjoy wide open spaces and fresh air amid the vines on our working, family owned wine farm. Explore the vineyards, swim in the dams and expect the most spectacular sunsets and stunning Swartland views.

In Room Facilities:
The WINEMAKERS COTTAGE, which is over 100 years old, is set between the old vineyards, veggie garden and farm dam. It is fully equipped for self-catering, with two en-suite bedrooms with roll top bath and/or shower and locally sourced, all-natural selection of bee product toiletries provided. Underfloor heating in both bedrooms and bathrooms as well as air conditioners in all rooms. Luxury linen & towels, small safe, hairdryer and USB plugpoints beside the bed and in the living area for charging. Curl up on the sofa in winter in front of the large indoor fireplace (can also braai here) with a good book and bottle of our Family Wine - hot water bottles and Xhosa blankets provided. Nespresso machine, tea / coffee / sugar / milk and homemade farm rusks all there for your convenience. Our farm cook Elsa Smit will have a freshly baked farm loaf waiting for you on arrival and you are more than welcome to help yourself to some of our free-range farm eggs from the chicken coop.

Our converted SILO ROOM consists of one open plan master bedroom with king size bed, luxury cotton linen and towels, air conditioning and ensuite wetroom shower with locally sourced, all-natural selection of bee product toiletries. Hairdryer, pool towels and hot water bottles provided. Small kitchenette equipped with Nespresso machine, kettle, toaster, microwave and under counter fridge. Our farm cook Elsa Smit will have freshly baked bread / rusks waiting for you on arrival. Tea / coffee / milk / butter provided in your room.
You are welcome to cool off in the small farm dam behind the chicken coop. This is shared with the Stables accommodation. Please use the pool towels provided in your drawer.

Area Information:
Located only an hour north of Cape Town (75km) this is a place where the the rain falls less and the sun shines more. The Swartland is the gateway to the West Coast and is home to some of the best wines in the country. The climate is warm and dry, the terroirs are diverse and the landscape is breathtaking. Expect sweeping wheat fields, bright yellow canola fields, heritage vineyards, olive groves and an abundance of rich bird life.

Visit some of the award winning wine farms in the area. Please note that appointments for tastings often need to be booked in advance. A great selection of Swartland wines can otherwise be found at the Wine Kollective in Riebeek Kasteel (check for wine tastings on weekends) Other wine areas close by: Voor Paardeberg, Wellington, Paarl, Stellenbosh & Franschoek.

Malmesbury, Paarl, Wellington and the Riebeek Valley are all within half an hour’s drive and each of these towns have great offerings from restaurants, wine & olive tastings, leather factories, arts & crafts and much more.

Visit Riebeek Kasteel for quirky shops, great restaurants and notorious gin bar at the Royal Hotel.

Visit Riebeek West for The Village Market, first Saturday of every month.

Tick off your bird list on the Swartland Birding Route

Cycle the Riebeek Valley biking trails and stay off the beaten track by hiking the Paardeberg and seeing what our neighbors have to offer.

Canoe the Berg River Marathon in July.

Feast at the Fig Festival (usually 1st weekend in April)

Don't miss the Olive Festival (usually 1st weekend in May)

Enjoy intimate art encounters at the Solo Studios weekend in August.

Let the kids enjoy the downhill dash at the Riebeek Valley Go Kart Darby in October.

Important to note:

Summer gets VERY hot! Wear a hat. Pack your cozzie. Suncreen is your friend!
Autumn colours are very pretty. Pack a camera.
Winter can get very cold and sometimes wet but the beauty of the canola fields in full flower is an experience not to be missed. Remember to wear practical shoes!
Spring means pretty flowers and pollen. Bring your antihistamines. Bless you!

Expect large and lazy dogs, horses, chickens, peacocks, guineafowl and perhaps even the odd pig or sheep. You will most certainly be visited by the farm dogs, Appel and Koos James. If you feed and give them attention they will love it and come back for more (or never leave!) otherwise please call us and we will take them away if they become a nuisance.
