This weekend we were privileged enough to stay out in the Slanghoek valley at the Slanghoek Mountain Resort (www.slanghoekresort.co.za). It is the most beautiful area, situated just more than an hours drive from Cape Town, Near Goudini area. More specifically, the closest town is Rawsonville, but it is a gem on it’s own.
There are a number of awesome wineries dotted along the wine valley main road and I will be posting about each place we stopped at throughout the week.
The Slanghoek Mtn Resort has a variety of accommodation options, from luxury tents to guest houses to regular camping facilities, and of course, the new log cabins, in which we stayed. The log cabins are about 4km drive from the main section of the resort and over very rough terrain. Usually you arrive at the resort and then someone will take you to your log cabin in a 4x4 vehicle for the night.
The log cabins use solar power only and are self-catering. There is an amazing little fireplace, which really heated up the room.
We were supplied with an awesome platter of cheeses, breads, crackers, meats, preserves and pastries for a finger supper and a variety of wines provided by Jason’s Hill down the road.
Other activities on the farm include trout fishing, bass fishing, hiking, pony rides for kids, putt putt and there are three swimming pools.
To be honest, we can’t wait to go back again!
