We loved staying at Alje’s little cottage. It was by far our favorite place so far on our journey around South Africa. Everything was perfect. I highly recommend you relax and enjoy the simple candlelit cottage! Beautiful

I am a farmer and cheesemaker, curious about almost everything and love food, music, travel, history, cultures, literature, being in nature and much more. Although the cottage is on a farm and therefore secluded, it is very much part of the farm life - it is in the vegetable gar…
