Just the place to unwind

The Cape winter has a certain charm that only someone who has enjoyed it will understand. The lower mountains sometimes have snow on them, the tallest always, and of course there is the rain and the mists which add a special magic to the whole experience. Getting away to the mountains of Franschhoek is a special joy and hunkering down near a blazing fire or sitting on a sheltered deck overlooking your own private trout dam with a drink and a cosy blanket with someone special is an unbeatable moment you will never forget.

 

The perfect mirror

The dam is stocked with trout

Just such a place is Trout Cottage on La Verdure farm just close enough to the excellent restaurants in the area–more of them next week–but there is an unescapable feeling of being in another world. The roaring fire inside warms the whole place but, just in case, there are electric blankets to ensure you are warm. There are two en suite set ups, a kitchen with oven, fridge and stove top so you can  cater for yourself without braving the elements. So get there and experience for yourself a memory to be treasured.  Should Trout be occupied there are 3 other cottages available so all is not lost.

Talk about cosy!
