very well laid out cottages, clean and secluded in the bush. Nice and big venue with romantic chapel. Friendly staff and owner, very helpful and accommodating. Breath taking views from the pool deck over the landscape and ocean.

The estate has beautiful scenery and made me feel welcome. The sea view was breath taking from the pool.The rooms were tidy and clean. The venue chapel is quaint.It was a pity the WiFi didn't work.We took breathtaking pictures for our memoirs. The picnic areas had a Forrest feel with so much greenery and fresh air.

We arrived at the gates of La Cigale after a long international flight only to find that the owner was showing people around the property, so she told us to wait outside the gate for 5 to 10 minutes.

The TV is very outdated (no modern flat screen and tv mounted so high we had to strain our necks to sit and watch it). The sound quality of...

The property has a pool and braai with a gorgeous view of the Indian Ocean. The grounds are quiet, safe, and meticulously maintained with an abundance of trees, bushes, and flowering plants. It is 5-10 minutes...

“Take a walk through the magical garden. Although there is a braai area at your own cottage, make sure also to to braai at the swimming pool area. Stunning sun sets. Do visit Sardinia Bay Beach. Cycling in this area is a must.”
