It was a delightful experience since we booked our stay. Upon our check-in we were greeted by François, who made us feel very welcome. The interior is beautifully done! The food from Amy's Restaurant was delicious and we had good service from everyone. Book the JHG Experience, whereby you get packed a picnic and taken on a little drive between the vineyards and pomegranate orchards all the way until you reach the "koppie" of the farm welcomed by the most beautiful view! We can't wait to go back :)

Very friendly reception, service and we loved it. Pristine location among the olive trees and at the foot of the mountain. Very peaceful in our own flat. Wish we had more time to stay longer and enjoy more of the facilities on offer.

When COVID hit, we had to roll over our entire 2 week SA trip not once, but twice. Out of multiple properties who were all so accommodating and allowed to postpone and rebook 2x, this was the only one that refused to refund us when the date we asked for the following year was unavailable.

A pleasant and personal welcome when we arrived. Francois the general manager, is very helpful, friendly and goes out of his way to make guests feel special. All the staff are super friendly. Very tasteful rooms with everything you need. The surroundings and setting of the accommodation is beautiful.

We couldn't have asked for more from our host Francois. He couldn't do enough for us and his communication before our arrival was excellent. We also loved the service from the restaurant and the staff are all super friendly and efficient. The surroundings and setting of the accommodation is beautiful.
