“A MOST pleasing destination for a break from it all!”
Reviewed 13 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Porterville is one of, if not the last small-towns (i.e., dorpies) proximate to scenic beauty with which only the Western Cape in beautiful South Africa is blessed. It is a gem of a destination, just a few minutes drive from accessible natural beauty in a climatic zone that compares nicely with Palm Springs in the USA. Add to mountains, vineyards, waterfalls, Beaverlac and thermals, the amazing food and natural products, Porterville is a place poised for ever-expanding tourism. Last, but not least, the personal care and attention of Phillip and Dean, your hosts, in most comfortable accommodations, steeped in character at The Stable -- and at their outdoor pool and lounge area -- leave one with a profound degree of healing. Two large, comfortable bedrooms with queen-sized beds and views onto the mountains, private outdoor patio with braai facilities, modern kitchen and living room with well-appointed furnishings, welcome each guest. Be as surprised as I was and make a point to visit The Stable for a memorable break from any city. Being a 1.5-hour drive north of Cape Town on fine roads, the place is accessible and well worth the scenic trip and a several-day stay. I look forward to returning to The Stable to again be hosted and feted by Phillip and Dean!
