Beautiful, well-kept gardens. Great for nature-lovers. We had lunch in the gardens. The food was good, but the portions small. Lovely decorated stores, including a scented room!

If would say that this is the most exquisite farm in the Western Cape. If are interested in cape dutch architecture, horticulture, art, design, bees, farming, food or just an amazing day in a sustainable and beautiful environment do treat yourself and visit!
