A unique property of the area, safe and secure. The views from all the rooms are stupendous.The interiors are stylishly filled with Provencal and Tuscan furnishings. The Villa serves as a Guest House as well.

The owner lives upstairs and there are dogs on the vast property, unless you are a large group of 10 in which case she relocates.
Guests are always welcome upstairs to use facilities and book dinners.

The owner is a Gourmet cook and Travel writer who took five years to renovate and equip this home with warm and lovely touches.
The home has a full-time Malawian Housekeeper and a gardener in attendance who live on the property.

She acts as Travel advisor, will book tours, take you to the Winelands and impart her knowledge of local wines to visitors.

In the countryside but just ten minutes from shops and Supermarkets in nearby towns. Just off a major road between Hermanus and Gansbaai (Goose Bay).
Easy access, pristine Fynbos and a private beach 6kms down the property over the dunes. A good walk or accessible with a 4x4 (not in use at the moment) vehicle.
The OVERBERG region is the gem of the Western cape and very unspoiled. Fishing, horses, mountains and beaches. The best wine farms are on your doorstep and lovely country bistros.
This is a warm and welcoming country-even winter is wonderful with sunny skies and good rainfalls.
