Our only mistake is that we spent only one night at Fraai Uitzicht. The location, just outside Robertson, makes it easy to visit other excellent wine estates nearby. The rooms (we had cottage "Merlot") are luxurious and spacious and set in magnificent gardens overlooking the pool and herb garden. There was personal interaction from management and when we had locked our keys in our car and had to wait for a locksmith, we were assured we neednt hurry to vacate our room and were offered champagne! The food was outstanding and the service excellent. Can't fault them on anything and would readily recommend this establishment again.

We, a Swedish group of experienced travellers, had selected the Fraai Uitzicht 1798 as a most interesting place to stay and to test wines. We had alrady "tested" the excellent Steenberg in Constantia and Zevenwacht in Stellenbosch.
This place was a little different. It is a small place, at the end of a road leading "nowhere". We were met at the gate and given the proper directions to get to our sleeping quarters. The rooms were OK - one might perhaps expect a slightly higher standard. But from now on everything was remarcable. The presentation of the wines at the wine tasting was something better than we have ever experienced earlier - not only on this trip, but my 11 years in South Africa included. It was a most personal and professional "wiminar" where the various processes were dealt with intimately. Maybe the summit of the wine tasting was the presentation of a new "experimental" wine. Not only was the wine very nice and inviting, but we were also informed about what courses on the menu would go best with this wine - and the others as well. We also had the opportunity to meet Karl, the wine maker, who gave us some aditional information.
We had a splendid evening - and a sad good bye the next morning. But we had to leave - to meet new, exciting adventures.

Room Tip: Book well in advance. Double rooms are more than twice as good as the single ones. Don't miss t...

Heading for Stellenbosch we were absolutely lucky to have found this Fraai Uitzicht guesthouse and winery. The access from the parking area to the entrance of the main building promises the best there can be and indeed... dreams come true.
We were three couples and stayed in great rooms with all possible comfort and amenities. Also free WIFI !!
We had dinner in their restaurant that serves excellent food both for quality and presentation.
The host and his staff are most friendly and even entertaining.
Breakfast was fabulous with a bottle of pink quality sparkling wine served. Heaven !!
The establishment is perfectly located amidst its vinyards and with great views of the surrounding mountains.
Excellent value for money. We would recommend this place to all who visit the area.

Room Tip: Try to have a room close to the main lounge. Some rooms are a bit far from the 'heart' of th...

On our annual pilgrimage to Robertson's Wine on the River festival, we decided to revisit Fraai Uitzicht, where we had stayed early in 2011. We were taken across the garden to our accommodation in one of the one-roomed garden cottages, all of which are named after wine grapes. Ours was called Shiraz .The gardens are extensive and beautifully kept, with a small lake, stocked with koi, and a variety of bird life. The cottage was simply but elegantly furnished and very comfortable. The bedroom area has an extra length bed with feather and down pillows and individual duvets. The sitting room area has armchairs and a sofa with wide screen Digital Satellite TV and a fireplace. The large bathroom has underfloor heating. There is a separate shower wet room and loo and a private outside shower area. The restaurant has a fireplace to keep it cosy in winter. Wooden country furniture makes it feel very warm and comfortable. Fraai Uitzicht has its own vineyards and Karl Papesch - who owns the property with his wife Sandra, who is the chef - makes his own wine. We enjoyed a very limited release Viognier as well as his Merlot and Shiraz with our dinner. After an amuse of Chinese beef with sesame, Lynne had Singapore coconut chicken soup with noodles and John chose Carpaccio of warthog. For our mains, Lynne had Asian salmon trout with jasmine rice and stir fried vegetables and John enjoyed his Bread wrapped venison with parsley mousse, served with truffle mash, juniper jus and broccoli. For dessert, we had a perfect gooey chocolate fondant and a delicious Lemon panacotta. For breakfast, after a restful night's sleep, John had muesli, yogurt and fresh fruit, scrambled egg with chives, while Lynne enjoyed a cold meat and cheese platter, toast, a warm almond and a freshly baked chocolate croissant, Served with home made lemon jelly and raspberry jam. Our liquid needs were satisfied with freshly squeezed orange juice, Graham Beck Brut and plenty of good strong black coffee. Could one ask for more? The morning was bright and sunny at last and, after a lovely breakfast and many, many thank yous, we travelled back to Cape Town with a couple of wine-tasting stops on the way.

Hi There,
This April we have been again with Sandra and Carl Uwe at Fraai Uitzicht. What shall I say? What Sandra and Carl have built up there is just a dream. they are fantastic hosts. Sandra is a genious in kitchen and Carl Uwes Merlot ist just... ahhhhhhh wow.... It is alway a pleasure to come back there. We always stay in the cottage. You have enough space, like a little house. Also the dogs are amazing. After easter it was pretty calm there, therefore we went with Sandra and the dogs on a morning walk, ok, once we got nearly lost but we found the way back (remember Sandra....). and after such a walk a nice breakfast... live is wonderful. We will certainly come back again. All the best to Sandra, Carl Uwe and their team.
Alberto and Anita

Room Tip: Cottage is amazing to stay

We visited the Fraai Uitzicht establishment once more. Its character, service, accomodation and food are still what one is looking for when escaping rom Cape Town; superb. Food and wine are outstanding. This dosen't take into account the wonderful surroundings of the Robertson area. when travelling from overseas, this is a must.

We stayed at Fraai Uitzicht for one night in March but would loved to have stayed longer. The cottages are beautiful and so much attention to detail has been given. The gardens are immaculate and the setting is just wonderful in between the vineyards. Dinner was an absolute treat with the owner Sandra as chef and her husband Karl able to give you tips on wines. Definitely a place to go back to!
