Our piece of paradise…
Situated deep in the heart of the Swartland, Vleidam Guest Farm in Koringberg is the peaceful getaway you have been searching for. With panoramic views of the richly fertile farmlands, Vleidam Guest Farm is tranquil, country-living for the whole family. Stay within a typical working farm environment with loads of animal and birdlife to enjoy. Vleidam farm has plenty of activity with its picturesque mountain or “koppie”, ideal for hiking, cycling or 4×4 trailing, which takes you to phenomenal lookout points.
You may also want to explore the nearby towns of Moorreesburg, Riebeek-Kasteel or Misverstand dam where you can swim, ski, canoe or boat. These touristy towns have plenty of fabulous restaurants, farm-stalls as well as wine farms for you to enjoy, all less than 10 minutes away! Otherwise, enjoy an evening in around the “braai pit” on your personal front lawn where kids can play while watching the sunset over the farming meadows. If you’re looking for a unique retreat, Vleidam Guest Farm is the perfect spot in paradise. It is also just a 60 min drive from Cape Town.
Nikki was an amazing host! From the freshly baked bread, the homemade jam, or the special touches for our 10 week old son. We were told to relax, not to worry about a thing and enjoy the farm life. That we did! It was quiet, except for the lovely sounds coming from the geese, the sheep…and we were spoiled to see very young lambs on the farm on our way out. There is a hiking trip on the farm which leads you to nice scenic heights (well elevated). Moorreesburg is close if you want a quick outing, and Darling is around the corner (which we did on our way back to Stellenbosch). If you have kids, they will love this place…animals everywhere… if you are adults… nothing beats the fire reaching up into a well lit night sky. For winter, if it gets cold…there is a fireplace in the kitchen… Take the weekend… break away from the busy city life and enjoy seclusion. We will be back for winter… take our friends…have red wine, and potjies. Recommended!!!Denzil – AirBnB
