Laundry service at small extra fee on premises. Shady parking on a quiet, safe street in front of the cottage or off street. Lovely views of the koppie, sunsets, easy walking distance to town centre and onto leisure trails in the majestic Swartberg Pass - a proclaimed World Heritage site. Regret no credit card facilities, no pets and a minimum of two nights' stay required.More

About the neighbourhood
Breathtaking scenery at the foot of the World Heritage Site, the Swartberg Pass. Green oasis filled with olive and fruit trees, wine and fig farms, local dairy making delicious cheeses and yoghurt, artists' studios and a culinary school. Water furrows lead clear mountain water through the village and past the Artist's Cottage - an idyllic position within 5 minutes walk of all attractions and gourmet restaurants.
Getting around
The town can safely be explored on foot or rented bicycle.
