We loved our stay here! Our hosts were just fantastic and we so enjoyed everything from the delicious wine and olives to their gorgeous dogs. The cottage was comfortable and the surroundings so peaceful and beautiful. We highly recommend this place.

We feel so lucky to have found Alpha Excelsior via SA-Venues! It is a brilliant place -- perfect location, beautifully cared for and thought through accommodation options, gorgeous dam with delicious mineral-packed mud, delicious wine, olives and olive oil, starlit skies to leave you awestruck, views and geological rock life to blow your mind and a blessed waterfall. Peaceful, unpretentious and beautiful place. We look forward to returning soon!
