“really lovely place - a gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2009

Stopped off in Swellendam to break the drive and what a little gem it is? Very pretty setting and lovely houses and restaurants. La Rachelle was easy to find and very welcoming. Our room was very nice with a lovely bathroom. Very quiet and overlooked the small pool area. Our hosts were very kind and helpful and recommended a lovely restaurant nearby. Lovely relaxing breakfast before we headed off. The town is very sweet and well worth a walk around. Highly recommended and very good value.
