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

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. After half an hour we called again, she had obviously forgotten we were there!

We live in Cape Town and recently visited my parents in Port Elizabeth in August 2013 and stayed over at La Cigale Country Estate for the weekend. The accommodation is exquisite, extremely neat, and modern with tranquil surroundings and beautiful gardens and with stunning views

"do not go there"
"Best view in the bush with secluded / private feel."
"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."
"Cottage 3 and 4 have closer parking areas for older people."
