MASTER ROOM - SLEEPS 2

Its extra high ceiling under the charming thatched roof, or the spacious 35sqm, or the convenience of its modern bathroom may matter as well. No expense has been spared when it comes to the comfort and luxury afforded guests at BeauSoleil in Bonnievale. The Master Room is well decorated with mural paintings, a special hand made four poster bed and furniture which blend in with the nature and environment. The room is spacious and the en-suite new bathroom is luxuriously and well equipped.

location & attractions
Surrounded by the Langeberg Mountain Range in the north-east, and the Riviersonderend Mountains in the south-west, it is one of the most beautifully situated towns in the Western Cape. The town is situated approximately 180 km East of Cape Town and 100 km from Cape Agulhas, the southernmost tip of the African continent.
The town is ideally situated on the legendary Route 62, winding through the Breede River Valley, halfway between Cape Town, Knysna and the Garden Route. BeauSoleil is a working vineyard in the picturesque valley of Breede with its majestic Langeberg Mountains (snow-capped in winter).
Of course, Bonnievale's main attraction cannot go unmentioned for long, which is why a note of the area’s magnificent wine estates must be made. A wine taster’s paradise, it has been said, can be found no further than the many wine cellars dotted throughout the valley. Setting out upon discovering said paradise can be an arduous journey, especially if your base of exploration is many a kilometer away. It is with this in mind that BeauSoleil Guest House is pleased to announce that no other place of stay can boast such a close proximity to the R317 wine route. In fact, locating one of these wine cellars is just a matter of a walk to the nearest neighbouring estate, which also conveniently doubles as the next-door café and restaurant.
Bonnievale's 9 hole golf course. The course is maintained in top condition and the layout is level and very user-friendly. Golfers used to playing on very busy courses are particularly struck by the relaxed and unhurried atmosphere to be found here. Length of Course: 5.720 meters. Type of course: Karoo Bush
