In one of the brief notes about the history of Knysna it is written that the woodcutters that lived in the forest found it very difficult to leave. So it was with us when our time to leave came. Our cottage was beautifully put together and very comfortable with everthing that we needed. We came close to saying "what the heck" and staying another few days. We were especially impressed by the attention to detail. The carbon footprint is very small. Power is largely solar. There is a container for food scraps for the worms. Water literally comes from the sky. It is rain water! Just loved that outside shower - back to nature! Good linen and great pillows. All the important stuff - sorted. We will go back. Our young son - he is 8 - insists.
