Setting:

The farm is situated 15 km from Bonnievale on the border of the Breede River Valley and Overberg regions. We are centrally situated between Swellendam, Ashton, Montagu, Bonnievale and Robertson. We are about an hours drive from the coast with the closest coast town Arniston / Waenhuiskrans.

The area offers lovely scenic drives into the Overberg, wine estate visits in the Robertson Wine Valley, river cruises, adventure activities, art studio visits and lots of other friendly country enjoyment and adventure activities.

The farm has a Jersey dairy cow herd where cows enjoy life grazing on the fields day and night to provide fresh and healthy milk to Mooivallei Suiwel.

A safe and relaxed country environment to enjoy and spend time with friends, families or colleges.
