Fonteinskloof is a beautiful farm situated at the foot of the Langeberg Mountains, 10 kms from Swellendam on the R60 towards Ashton. The magnificent mountains tower above the farmhouse and cottages which have been luxuriously renovated to provide comfortable accommodation. The cottages are nestled at the foot of the mountain and have awesome mountain and countryside views.
The 4 newly-renovated cottages are comfortably nestled among tranquil surroundings on an antelope game farm which is home to a variety of animals. Of the 4, there are three 2 bedroom and one 1 bedroom cottages. Each cottage has its own open plan kitchen and lounge area. The cottage floors are superbly finished in porcelain, ceramic or wood and the kitchens have granite or wood finished. All cottages have their own verandas with braai facilities. All cottages are self-catering and fully equipped. All have modern bathrooms with towels and toiletries. All have baths and showers except 1 cottage that has a ‘sit-in’ shower.
The farm has a swimming pool and a games room with a pool table and television for relaxation after hiking, cycling or playing tennis on the farm court which is not Wimbledon but ideal for an afternoon knock about. You may just want to relax on your stoep and view the bird life while enjoying your refreshment. If looking for adventure, visit Swellendam, the 3rd oldest town in South Africa.
