The Fijndraai Estate is a boutique wine farm with an equestrian centre and beautiful vineyards. We produce Mediterranean style wines and olive oil.
This is the perfect tranquil escape yet close to all the attractions of the surrounding area (easily accessible via the main motorways). The estate is located between Stellenbosch and Somerset West, approximately 30 min from Cape Town and 15 minutes from the nearest beach. Cape Town International Airport is a quick 20 minute drive away. The property is child-friendly, access controlled and extremely safe with a night time security guard.
Ideally situated amongst some of the most renowned wine farms in the country, visitors are left with endless options i.t.o. dining and day trips. The nearest grocery store is 8 minutes from the estate. For last minute necessities, there are other closer markets just outside the Estate where you can buy basic groceries such as milk, bread and fruit. The Estate is very well located and you won't struggle to get hold of anything that you need. Covered parking is available at the cottage and we supply towels and linen and basic amenities on arrival. Daily cleaning services are available at an additional cost if arranged in advance.
Please note that there aren't any pets that stay in the cottage but as it is a farm there are domestic animals on the premises. We also have horses, ducks, geese and a few small wild antelope.
There are many mountain bike routs around the farm and it is also a safe environment to go for a walk or run.
Additional services that are available on request.
Housekeeping: R 200 per day as needed
Guests have access to the entire property with a pool to enjoy in summer. Guest can roam freely on the estate and go for walks or a run between the vineyard and paddocks. There is a deck by the pond that is perfect for sundowners.
The cottage is a stand-alone cottage. You have complete privacy in terms of living space but please be considerate towards others around you in terms of noise (although you would have to be extremely, extremely loud to bother others).
Please give us you estimated time of arrival in advance. This will allow us to arrange for you to be welcomed and receive the keys to the cottage.
If you require cleaning services we can arrange it. Please note that this will be at an additional cost. These services can be daily or as often as you require.
If you are a smoker, you are welcome to smoke outside on your patio. Please note that smoking is not allowed inside the cottage.
If additional guests are added, they will be charged according to the prices advertised for those dates. If there is any uncertainty, please contact us and we can confirm if there are any additional costs and what these costs will be.
If you need clarity on any other questions that we haven't address in the house rules, please ask us.
I studied law and accounting and currently work at a law firm in Cape Town. We own a beautiful wine farm in Stellenbosch with cottages that we rent out to guests. I love to meet new people from all over the world and hope to assist in making their trip in South Africa unforgettable.
