Does the sound of a luxurious 10-sleeper self-catering villa tantalize your travel-taste buds? If the answer is yes, then you should look no further than Riverstone House.

Situated in Romansrivier, a peaceful and quite hideaway location from the buzz of the big city, just about an hour and half out of Cape Town. This pet-friendly establishment sits by the riverbank and nestles quietly at the bottom of the mountains with some beautiful sunset views from a manicured garden. The house is placidly placed to overlook the mountains making the sounds of birds chirping all day long an added unbeatable delight. If all these, coupled with some a majestic landscape tickles your fancy, then this excellent farmhouse spot will be one memorable holiday for you and your family. The home is fitted with an enclosed area where pets can play without being able to run off.

This exclusive country accommodation sits in a rural setting but don’t let that fool you; it is stylishly and luxuriously furnished. So, expect a large, tastefully decorated country house with a comfortable lounge and covered back and front patios to enjoy the views of the surroundings from all cardinal points. The house is so well placed to take some walks around and enjoy the countryside.

The Bree river that flows just outside is great for some swimming in the warmer months. The farm dam is also available for some dipping to cool yourself down when a need arises. In the winter months you have the luxury of a wood burning stove in the lounge to keep warm and cozy.

The house has four spacious bedrooms all fitted with fine white linen and one bedroom has aircon. Two full beds in the two rooms and twin beds in the other rooms. It boasts two full bathrooms to accommodate a big family. Other amenities available in the house to sweeten your stay are the washer, dryer, and dishwasher.

Ideally located along the wine route to explore award-winning wine estates, the house is in the neighbouring area to quaint farmstalls, amazing restaurants, some gorgeous wedding venues, and olive farms. Over and above the working farms like Witzenberg, other close by areas to explore are Tulbagh, Ceres, Slanghoek and Wolseley. Just outside Wolseley you can visit an export Blueberry and pear farm to learn about the seasonal rhythms of farm life. With all that said, there really should be no excuses not to try out this place for that unforgettable family getaway your kids will love you even more for. Book that leave, pack up the kids and pets in that trailer and head out to the Riverstone House to let your hair down for a few days of recharge and pure relaxation.
