Mountain view is a working vineyard. In Chardonnay house you can find peace and tranquility, surrounded by mountains and wildlife, ranging from the majestic fish eagle to the occasional cape leopard or breeding pair of eagles. You are free to roam the farm and its mountains or follow the many trails on the farm. Swim in the rock pool filled with crystal clear mountain water or climb a steep hill to view indigenous rock art. On the other hand, have a glass of wine and do nothing at all.
You will stay in Chardonnay house, the original cottage built on the farm. Two spacious rooms and a large loft with its own verandah makes it easy to accommodate you according to your preferences. Three full bathrooms, living area with kitchen and dining room is yours to enjoy. We provide a flat screen TV and Netflix. Bring your own Multichoice card if you need satellite TV. WiFi is free.
Roam as you like, but stay safe!
Interaction with guests
The Hosts will be somewhat Hands-off. This is to ensure the guests truly make themselves at home but also be able to let the hosts know if anything is needed.
Other things to note
Self catering. Bring food and water (the tap water is potable) , hiking boots/shoes. The kitchen is fully equipped and outside barbecue is available. We can offer a breakfast or dinner basket should these be needed.
You are two hours and a half hours from Cape Town, and thirty minutes from Robertson. The farm is secluded and very safe. Approximately 10 kilometers is a good dirt road. If you would like to use the farm as a base for your exploration of the Western Cape, let us know and we will assist in arranging day trips (e.g. wine tasting, nature reserves, ferry and tractor rides, ostrich farms, etc.) at very reasonable rates.
