“Beautiful vineyard and rose farm”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2012

We have just returned from south Africa and our first two evenings were spent in the cream rose room. Aan den Weg is situated in a quiet and beautiful location, you can't help but relax there. It only took an easy 30minutes drive from cape town airport and our greeting by Petra was second to none. She is an excellent host with good local knowledge that she was happy to share. You are made to feel at home as soon as you arrive and little extra touches like the bouquet of roses in the room and petals on the table for breakfast are exquisite. There is an evident amount of pride in the accommodation, which was beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. We really enjoyed the walks around the farms and being taught about the rose farming process at our request.
If you're after true relaxation in a beautiful setting with great customer care I would recommend Aan den Weg

Aan den Weg is a B&B on a rose farm and vineyard, situated outside Stellenbosch. It has beautiful views of the mountains and rolling hills. We stayed at Aan den Weg for 3 nights at the end of a 3-week holiday in South Africa in October 2010. Our welcome from Petra couldn’t have been warmer. Petra is a kind and delightful hostess and a fount of knowledge about where to eat and what to do. Our arrival at Aan den Weg coincided with a “Big O” birthday for me, and I was delighted with the beautiful bunch of red roses in our room and the bottle of wine from their vineyard. Furthermore we came back from our evening meal to find rose petals had been scattered in our room and carefully arranged around the edge of the bath and washbasin. What a lovely thought from someone I had only met a few hours previously!

We stayed in the Red Rose room, which is self-contained on the ground floor with parking directly in front of the room. It has self-catering facilities consisting of a hob, grill oven and microwave and fridge. There is a private patio at the side of the room. The room is large and beautifully decorated with a table and chairs and a comfortable 2-seater sofa in addition to the double bed. It is all spotlessly clean. There are wall panel heaters in the bedroom area.

There is a swimming pool at the back of the house with sun loungers and it is sheltered from any wind, though it was still too cold for us to use it during our visit. Due to the unseasonably cold weather when we were staying there, breakfasts were served at a large table in the dining room in the main house, though there is a large patio area where breakfasts are usually served during warmer weather. Fresh fruit, yoghurts, croissants and a number of jams and conserves were all available as well as full English hot breakfasts. One morning Petra cooked her scrambled eggs “Petra style” for us, which were delicious.

The rose fields and vineyard surround the B&B, and guests are welcome to wander around (we were accompanied enthusiastically by the family’s young Labrador dog!). Petra also arranged a tour of the rose packing sheds for us, where we were able to see the whole process from roses being brought in having been cut minutes beforehand, prepared, and then the bunches being despatched to local shops. Petra was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable about this aspect of their business and very willing to answer our questions. We really enjoyed our short tour.

Aan den Weg is ideally situated for Cape Town airport, which is less than 30km away and would make an ideal base for exploring the Winelands and the Cape area. We found car parking in Stellenbosch difficult though (many spaces were limited to 60 minutes) and when parking further out it was the first time during our holiday that no-one came forward to “mind our car” whilst we were gone, thus we did not feel particularly relaxed whilst sightseeing.

The Afrikaans Language Taal monument in Paarl is well worth a visit. Apart from seeing the monument itself the view from it on a clear day would be spectacular. Franschhoek is a delightful town and the “Four Passes Route” provides amazing views.

Finally when it came time for us to leave Aan den Weg, Petra was there to say goodbye….. and to sprinkle our car with rose petals! A lovely end to a most enjoyable stay. Thank you, Petra for your kindness, thoughtfulness and enthusiasm.
