“You are in for a treat"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2011

Forget about Napa and the California Wine Country. NOthing can compare to the beautyof South African Wine Country. The Cloud estate is run by Mr. and Mrs. Immelmann who take pride in every aspect of the property. THe dinner and wine pairings cannot be be compared to anything in California with its high traffic

Breathtaking views, well appointed suites, cozy, friendly, a home away from home, attention to detail , these are some of the adjectives I could use to describe Clouds and then I could wax lyrical for another 10 minutes, my advice: book a suite asap you 'll not be sorry! The owners are charming and from the moment you meet them you feel like old friends. This is the perfect venue for a wedding or celebration (if you're lucky enough to get a booking). On your doorstep restaurants, walks, drives, Cape Town, Stellenbosch... On and on I could go. I've just stepped out of the hot tub, revitalized, dreamy and relaxed, what more could girl ask for? Come and walk in the clouds you'll not be disappointed.... Promise!

We stayed in the Villa. Amazing views. Beautiful rooms, great attention to detail. Excellent breakfast. Very friendly and hospitable hosts and staff. Inviting lounge with big fireplace. Very close to several top wine estates and restaurants.

Spent two nights at Clouds with my girlfriend and we can't say enough nice things about the quality of the property and service provided by the staff. This is truly a top notch estate and is surprisingly affordable. Estate is conveniently located in between Stellenbosch and Franshoek.

Third stay at Clouds. On top of the Helshoogte pass, a beautiful view to the mountains is paired with excellent accomodation. Only downside is the frquent use of the estate for weddings or other venues.

This is the third time we have stayed at Clouds, on our trips to South Africa, and hopefully it won't be our last. The view across the valley is so magnificent, that it takes your breath away, and almost brings one to tears.
We stayed this year in the quaint little cottage's. With staying 8 nights we thought we would like to do a little bit of self catering. The cottage had every thing we needed even a video player. Although all I wanted to do was admire the view with a glass of chilled white wine. It is difficult getting a booking in the cottage's Jan, Feb, as the same people book every year. We stayed at the Villa two years before, and it is so beautifully furnished. The breakfast is so delicious, the problem being you are to full to have lunch in the beautiful winelands.
I would recommend Clouds to any-one looking for a quiet tranquil break. It is spotlessly clean, the owners Bernard and Perta, are always on hand (lovely people) to see to your every need. They even had the table set beautiful for us, when we happen to mention we were having some friend coming to the cottage for a Bar.b.q.
All the staff were so lovely and helpful.
I was so worried about writing this review, I felt it was our little secret find. I just hope they can accommodate us next time we visit S.A. It was truly the nicest place we stayed in South Africa.
