About Driftwood Cottage

Driftwood Cottage offers quaint, cozy, pet-friendly self-catering accommodation in the charming little village of Napier, centrally situated in South Africa's picturesque Overberg region, nestled between mountain ranges and the southernmost point of Africa.

It is a relaxing country-style cottage set in large gardens and offering peace and quiet from the hustle and bustle of life but within easy walking distance of all amenities in this charming little village. Leave your car safely parked and walk to the shops, restaurants and pubs, perhaps take a meander into the countryside, or just chill out in our delightful garden with stunning views over the village across the rolling wheat, barley and canola farmlands north towards the Sonderend Mountains.

Explore the picturesque Overberg
If you were to draw a circle on a map of the Overberg, with Napier at the centre and the radius an hour's drive, you would be amazed at how much there is to see and do. But that, we would hope, would be after you've worked your way through everything of interest in Napier itself. Day trips abound; the roads are quiet and before you know it you're at your destination, whether it be sea or mountains, wine tasting, cheese making, whale watching, great white shark cage diving or just a picnic at De Mond Nature Reserve.

• Bredasdorp Shipwreck Museum; world famous Kapula Candles, lifestyle arts and crafts centre
• Arniston / Waenhuiskrans, fishermen's cottages (Kassiesbaai) and cave
• Struisbaai beach, harbour, fresh fish and chips, then on to L'Agulhas
• Elim mission village, Geelkop Nature Reserve, arty Baardskeerdersbos
• De Kelders, Hermanus, whale watching, Stanford
