About De Wilge
"Where the world comes to a halt and the soul finds a new being". Situated in the picturesque Nuy Valley, and overlooked by the majestic Langeberg Mountains, right in the heart of olive country.
The old wine cellar dates back to 1905. During later years it became a dairy, and the origin of some fine cheese. Recently it has been renovated to make room for two luxuriously furnished apartments which offers upmarket accommodation. However, the old cement storage tanks still bear witness of a now bygone era.
Self Catering Accommodation
Each apartment offers a living room, fully equipped kitchen, full bathroom, outside braai area and two bedrooms. The main bedroom has a King-size four poster double bed, while the second room has been furnished with two beds. Should the need arise, extra bedding can be supplied by prior arrangement.
The renovated cellar features Oregon pine ceilings which give the apartment an oldish feeling, but at the same time has a romantic upmarket finish. The apartments can easily be combined if needed, as they are separated by a double door which can be opened upon request.
The apartments are fully air-conditioned for the hot summer nights. There is a swimming pool with jacuzzi jets on the doorstep of the guesthouse. For the colder winter months, a cozy ‘earth fire’ fireplace has been added to both apartments.
Hundred percent Percale linen and towels are provided. Wood and facilities for a braai will be available. Numerous restaurants are available in the neighbourhood.
We are situated just off the R60 main road between Worcester and Robertson and only 90 minutes from Cape Town. The area offers lots of activities. From scenic drives, 4x4 routes, boat trips, horse riding, game drives, brandy tasting and tours, wine tasting at numerous wine cellars and estates, water sports, Gary Player designed golf courses, art gallery, antique shops, exotic bird park and many more.
The surrounds offer a vast range of outdoor activities, which include mountain biking on the many veldpaths, hiking, canoeing, bird watching, fishing, strolling in the outstretched olive groves, and many more. Enjoy a sundowner on the "stoep" whilst watching the farm activities and magnificent mountains from a distance. The Toontjies River valley, which received its name already during the seventeen hundreds when elephants and predators still roamed here, is now home to vineyards and olive groves.
Visiting the olive cellar is a worthwhile experience, as the Willow Creek brand name has become a respected supplier of excellent olive oil associated products. A number of awards have been received during recent years, both locally and abroad.
We look forward to welcome you to our treasure, "De Wilge'.
