Safe, peaceful, stunning views, great affordability. Peace and tranquillity like you've never experienced before. Conveniently situated between Knysna and Plettenberg Bay, close enough to enjoy all the activities in and around the area. Spoil yourself on this 270 hectare retreat, abundant with bird life, protea and fynbos, no through road.

Relax completely on this "end of the road" 270-hectare farm - open spaces where you can breathe. Our views of the Bitou Valley and the Langkloof Mountains are truly breathtaking. You can be assured of great safety and security, as there are virtually no people/car/bike traffic passing through, maybe the occasional cyclist.

Go on a guided walk with our expert resident guide, horticulturist and birder of note, Karen, ending with a gourmet picnic at our special, purposely built venue. Relax on the pool deck overlooking a valley of fynbos and the mountains. Take a hike down to the Bitou river (or make use of other walking routes on the property).
