Klaasvoogds Cottages (Klaasvoogds Opstal which sleeps four and Klaasvoogds Cottage which sleeps two to three) offer charming, luxurious self-catering holiday accommodation and is well-equipped for long stays. Both cottages are minimally affected by load shedding. Klaasvoogds Opstal is gas and solar-powered and Klaasvoogds Cottage has a gas stove and an inverter.
Both the cottages lie in the beautiful Klaasvoogds Valley, at the foot of the Langeberg Mountains and have lovely views of vineyards, mountains and orchards. Klaasvoogds is centrally located in the Robertson wine valley on Route 62, within easy reach of many places of interest. The nearest towns are Robertson and the quaint, Klein Karoo town of Montagu, which has to be one of the prettiest towns in South Africa with its mix of vineyards, orchards and beautiful heritage buildings. And then there is a very charming village, McGregor, and further afield Swellendam which is the third oldest city in the Cape.
For those who are “laid back” - enjoy lovely views of the vineyards and mountains from every window, and on chilly nights settle in with a book or a glass of lovely, local wine in front of the roaring fire. In summer - as the day cools - relax on the porch and watch the fiery sunset give way to a night sky sparkling with stars. Eat gorgeous food at SA’s finest, award-winning restaurants, including nearby, Fraai Uitzicht and the Small Restaurant in Robertson. Taste wine at the more than 50 wine estates, sample olives at Marbrin Farm and Exdiem or locally made cheese at Mont Cheese. Shop for lavender distilled products at nearby lavender farm Owls Rest.Explore nature reserves. Swim or fish at the nearby Breede River or try to spot some of the 250 species of birds. And for the wildly energetic? Climb mountains, run or cycle along picturesque country roads, or exhaust yourselves with all the activities listed on local websites, www.robertsonwinevalley.com
