About Eensgevonden Vineyard Cottages

Eensgevonden is a working wine farm in a stunningly beautiful position. 360 degree views stretch across the great expanse of the Breede River Valley and the magnificent mountains that surround it. The farmstead - a National Monument - the oldest farmhouse in the Valley, dates back to the 1720’s. Friendly hosts will give you a warm welcome and happily show you around their farm and vineyards.

The farm includes 400ha of mountain Nature Reserve with scenic hiking trails through the fynbos. A 5 minute walk from the cottages is a gorgeous secluded mountain swimming pool. An hour from Cape Town, Eensgevonden is in one of the largest wine producing areas in South Africa. Over 20 wine cellars within a 15 km radius all offer free tasting of the excellent wines.

Accommodation

Guest Cottages
Three white-washed ‘Cape’ cottages can sleep up to 10 guests.
Two 2-bedroomed (queen and 2 singles) and one 1-bedroomed cottage (one queen) - each with separate bathrooms with showers/bath. The cottages are set against the mountains in a large indigenous garden, each with its own private braai/BBQ area.

They are bright and airy, with big double doors opening onto large stoeps/verandas. A great spot for evening sundowners! They are fully equipped for self catering - fridge, stove, microwave etc. and ‘Breakfast in a Basket’ can be delivered on request. The cottages are cool in Summer and have cosy fireplaces in Winter, when the surrounding mountains are snow-capped.

Crisp, white cotton sheets and feather duvets! No TV’s or radios! Just the peaceful sound of the birds and owls! Wireless internet access is available for those who are unable to travel without their laptop,

Verified reviewvery good

This is a beautiful part of the world. Big mountains, vineyards everywhere and very good wine. The Spring flowers were all over which was quite a sight. The accommodation was very warm and comfortable and perfect for our own cooking. Everything you need is in the cottage. Sally and Douglas were always helpful and told us all about the area and where to go. We recommend these cottages and we will come again.

Verified reviewexcellent

Even though it was winter in the Cape, it was warm and sunny during the day - highlighting the fantastic views across the vineyards. Sally and Douglas was very welcoming hosts and we loved being on their farm - especially the ducks! We'll be back when next in SA
