The solar-powered heritage cottage was built in 1894 and was the original homestead on the farm. We have recently renovated the derelict building, keeping the vernacular style and the charming old beams but adding contemporary features such as large sash windows and wooden glass-paned doors which bring in the light and beautiful views. It has wooden floors, hand-made French shutters, beautifully crafted wooden furniture and oil paintings.
It has two bedrooms, the main bedroom has a queen sized bed and the original ball and claw bath with a separate toilet. The second bedroom has two single beds with a big en-suite shower and separate toilet, both with beautiful views of mountains and vineyards. The lounge/dining room/ kitchen is open plan with a wood burning stove. The cottage has a big garden with a patio and veranda with wrap around views of moutains and vineyards. It is well-equipped for long stays. We have good kitchen equipment, a fireplace, two gas heaters, two fans, a washing machine, a microwave, satellite TV, CD player and a kettle barbecue.
Service included: Towels will be changed every three days, bed linen and cleaning will be done once a week.
Enjoy lovely views of the mountains, vineyards and orchards from every room. On chilly nights settle in with a book in front of a roaring fire. Picnic and walk/cycle along picturesque country roads.
