Overview
More
The Schalkenbosch vineyards are situated high up on the slopes of the Witzenberg mountain range overlooking the picturesque Tulbagh valley. The soils are similar to those found in the Rhone Valley in France and the vineyards enjoy a unique micro-climate. A late sunrise is due to the shadow of the mountain.

What a lovely time visiting such a peaceful and beautiful place. Old style farm housing that let you mis farm life and the every night braai.

We spent a wonderful weekend on the farm. Hiking, swimming, frisbee on the lawns and braaing. Clean rustic accommodation. Teary goodbyes for our daughter who had made friends with Rocky (the staffie pup).

We were sorry that this family were unhappy with the accommodation - we have rustic farm cottages and we do not pretend otherwise. They were built many years ago but our many guests, including those from overseas, find them charming and a pleasant getaway. We...More
