About Villachad Guesthouse
Kleinmond is a beautiful little village at the foot of the Kogelberg mountains and all the way down to its white, sandy beaches. It lies on a lagoon at the small mouth - hence the name meaning “little river mouth“ - of the Bot River, on a narrow strip of land, hugged on one side by the Kogelberg mountain range and on the other side by the Atlantic Ocean. It is also a very peaceful little village, endowed with some of the coast’s most natural beauty. It lies within the Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve which supports over 1600 species of fynbos of which numerous are endemic.
