Our suite consisted...

We stayed at Fountain Place 1-4 January 2017. Our hosts, Linzi and Justin were great and went out of their way to prepare a New Years Eve supper since all the restaurants were closed. Excellent location for getting away from it all. We appreciated Linzi's attention to detail to make our stay extra special.

A lovely find in a very secluded little town in the middle of the vineyards of the Wine route. A very comfortable bed and little sitting room with a large fridge and a fire for chilly nights! Loved the relaxed setting and sun birds feeding in the courtyard. An elegant Breakfast was served in the courtyard under the vines.
