Charming accommodation just outside Franschhoek. Pleasant attentive staff and lovely owners.After some shopping and wine tasting it was lovely to retreat to the grassy area around the pool with a book before venturing out to visit the excellent restaurants.

We stayed in the villa which was comfortable and spacious. My friends stayed in a manor room, also comfortable, but quite small. Very nice people running the accommodation and lovely environs in the middle of the olive farm.
