We stayed at Fraai Uitzict as part of a long trip along the garden route. We initially found the location a bit too far off the beaten track, but once we found we could drive at 50mph on the 6km long gravel road, it wasn't bad at all. The location is very peacefull, and the accomodation was really like something out of a fairy tale. We had a small cottage, adjoining the main building with a loft mezannine double bed, and kitchen, lounge and 2nd bedroom on the ground floor. The outdoor bathroom was something new for us to try, and showering outside in the morning was a lovely experience with views over the vineyards. The staff were extremely helpful. I needed to visit a doctors unfortunately and the hosts booked an appointment nearby within 1 hour.
The food had to have been one of the best meals we had in South Africa. The 7 course wine tasting menu was a memorable experience.
Well worth a couple of nights, or more.
