A wonderful guest house to have a couple's weekend in!
Situated in the beautiful surrounding of the Robertson-winelands, this Wine Farm/Guest House offers everything you need for a couple's weekend....we arrived around 2pm and spent the whole afternoon doing a wine-blending in a small wooden house at the river, completely on our own..surrounded by some friendly curious dogs, who live on the premises.
Afterwards, a lovely dinner around 7pm with a most attentive waiter who even offered to serve us when he coincidently spotted me and my girlfriend sitting on the voorstoep of our room enjoying the wine...very nice! Awesome dinner in front of the fireplace, dessert & coffee in front of the 2nd fireplace in the living room - the restaurant set up just for the 2 of us - definitely a recommendation also in off-season!!
