There are a number of reasons why Huis's heritage cottages are at the top of my list for a country getaway. When you drive into the village on a Friday evening, you can just feel the city stress exhale as you take a deep breath of restful country air. Nestled right behind the NG Kerk, it is a few minutes walk from the Saturday Market, and a leisurely wander in any direction will take you on a trip back in time along the dusty streets. If you prefer to be home-based, winter or summer you can lounge in one of the lovely chill areas (indoors or outdoors) and read, write or just take in your surroundings. If you are a foodie you will covet AMANDEL'S big country kitchen where you can cook up something truly gourmet – some of it from Huis’ veggie patch I’m sure. If you are looking for a cosy romantic weekend getaway where you can hide under the duvet all weekend then THE BARN is perfect… there’s even a ball and claw bath! If you’re lucky enough to work for yourself like I am, and can work anywhere where the internet is good (Huis’ internet is arguably better than mine at home in Stellenbosch!) then plan a weekday getaway for a change of scenery to inspire creativity. The toughest decision you’ll have to make is which cottage to choose when it comes to booking. I quite honestly can’t stay away, and I’ve lost count the number of times I’ve been able to enjoy all that Huis has to offer.

Thanks Lois for a wonderful stay at Amandel as usual. I highly recommend this traditional property complete with thatch roofs and fireplaces for the chilly valley winters. See you guys again soon! Gail
