“Absolutely stunning and a must to stay over"”

We were looking for a break away from our hectic work rate, and a break away we got!!! This little gem is hidden away in the Hemel-And-Aarde valley, just outside Hermanus. The cottage is tastefully decorated with everything you might need. The surroundings contribute to a feeling of absolute tranquility! Relax in the hammoc on the veranda(or catch up on lost sleep, like I did). There is also stunning hiking trails, or bring the MTB along, lots of roads to explore. We didn't get to all of them.

A huge plus is that Hermanus is a mere 10-15 min drive away, so no reason to be board.

For the animal lovers, pure Arabic horses, galloping past the cottage is a real treat! My wife really enjoyed this!!!

Don't miss out on this one!!
