What a gorgeous place and beautifully decorated in a subtle French country style that is so tasteful. We stayed in the villa, which has its own pool and spacious living area. Two downstairs bedrooms, one en-suite, with a sitting room, dining room and kitchen. An additional, very large bedroom suite is upstairs, via a separate entrance. We sneaked a look at the other rooms in the location, they are all immaculate and several have great views. Our private veranda looked out over the vines and off in to the mountains, from which you could watch incredible sunsets and the moon rising. highly recommend the little local tuk-tuk to get you in and out of town if you don't want to walk. Such a lovely chap, he deserves a mention as he ferried us around quite a lot.

The location with a wonderful view over the mountains, the charming room, a fantastic breakfast and an awesome group of extremely helpful staff.
It’s about a 15 min walk into the city center and that works fine in daylight.

We’ll see you again 🌟🌟🌟

We loved our stay at the Auberge Claremont. We stayed in the wonderful Honeymoon Suite, beautifully decorated with a huge comfy bed and lovely bathroom. The room opened directly onto a small terrace and faced the pool. The Auberge was an oasis of calm when we returned every afternoon to relax by the pool and wander around the vineyard.
Breakfasts were cooked to order and delicious, the best we had during our 4 week stay in SA.
When we left Loryn emailed me as I had left some items behind and she kindly sent them on to our next hotel. I would not hesitate to return.

Room tip: The Honeymoon Suite is just lovely

We've stayed at hundreds of bed and breakfast inns, a good number in beautiful country settings, so I'm not sure why this place felt so very special, but it is simply one of our favorite stays among similar vineyard or country stays. There is a peace and quiet permeating the place, an aroma, the small sounds of a family run farm and vineyard-in the shadow of those mountains-- hard to describe what a pleasure for the senses it was every minute of walking the grounds or sitting in our beautiful loft room watching either the sunlight or the full moon's light stream in or the clouds fly .... so many beautiful touches-all around the grounds, in the rooms--fresh flowers and herbs- daily breakfast notes.... and those eggs at breakfast! Why did they taste so good?! We have had farm fresh organic eggs, but I loved these eggs so much. And the lovely breakfast ladies- such charm, smiles, hospitality.

Every corner of the place was lovely and while I felt it was very much modeled on similar French country inns or Italian masserias- it felt somehow different. Maybe its the mountains, or the wind. We loved it.

Be aware, you cannot walk to and from the place after dark, it is pitch black and likely not safe to do so - but thank god for the Auberge's distance from what we found to be a very commercial and tacky tourist trap of a single main-drag town. Come to the area for the Auberge-and the beauty of he vineyars. If the town and its shops are your sort of thing, you may prefer staying at one of the many places off the main street that are closer- but there is transport to get you from this inn to the town or any restaurant in 5 minutes. If vineyard visits are your goal, you don't need to be in town. If it turns out the town is definitely not your cup of tea, you will be grateful to have your own beautiful vineyard and bit of heaven to enjoy in peace.

Room tip: Loft rooms for sure

Hi Matars_Z,
Thank you for the rave review and for noticing how we have worked on our guesthouse being top class but still keeping the relaxed feel.
It is in the perfect location, just out of our busy little village but so easy to get anywhere.
I hope you enjoyed the rest of your holiday and that you will be back.

We had the private villa at the end with the (cold) pool. 2 bedrooms and a separate annexe. We loved our stay here, the rooms were beautiful with nice touches like a bottle of Clermont red and fresh cut flowers and herbs in all bathrooms. Would have liked some bottles of water and more firewood readily available, but these can easily be purchased in town a 5 minute drive away. It's a 15m walk in the daytime but parking was easy so we just drove. A continental breakfast was laid out on our terrace every morning and someone would appear to take our cooked breakfast order. We could have done with more juice most mornings but this was a minor thing. There were 5 of us and my 16yo had the attic room (accessed by outside stairs) which she loved. The views will stay with me for a long time. Recommended.

Room tip: buy water & firewood. Pool chilly so use it mid-day. Consider a take away one evening to make the most of terrace.
