New owners, Venishree and Juergen Mayer, acquired Fraaigelegen Farm in 2016 as an ideal country escape to retreat,
rejuvenate and just listen to the silence. Add to that...wine, food and glorious weather!
The well-travelled couple resigned from their corporate roles in Germany and moved to beautiful South Africa with their dog Afra (Hovawart). They have now settled in and added Sasha (Husky/Swiss Shepherd mix) to their family.
Enjoy a real Farm Stay on their wine & olive farm. Choose from 3 self-catering cottages and a Caravan/Motorhome site (don't forget to ask the owners about their own Motorhome journey through Europe!)
IDEAL COUNTRY ESCAPE ON A WORKING FARM
Fraaigelegen Farm is just a 90 min. drive from Cape Town. Nestled under the majestic Witzenberg Mountains, the cottages are within easy reach of Tulbagh, Wolseley and Ceres, set along the famous Route 62 Winelands route.
Towns such as Wellington, Paarl, Worcester, Franschhoek and Stellenbosch are within 45-60 minutes drive. The up and coming Swartland Wine region (quaint Riebeeck Kasteel) is just over the mountain pass and your journey to the West Coast (Paternoster for crayfish?) is just 2 hours away!
Rated in 2016 as one of the Top 9 Romantic Hideways by SA Country Life!
Enjoy discovering the abundance of bird-life on the farm. A wonderful country holiday destination - whether you want to moutainbike, trail-run, zipslide or horseride!
Enjoy wine tastings at top wine estates, experience olive oil tasting and even chocolate tasting at Moniki's. Don't forget bubbly tasting at Rijks Wine Estate, Saronsberg Wine Estate and Twee Jonge Gezellen (Krone).
Top it all off with a fabulous meal at one of the lovely restaurants in the area.
