The Beds

The three en-suite garden cottages ensure privacy with their separate entrances and patios from which to watch starry summer nights or enjoy the bright sunshine. The interiors of all the rooms (as well as Jeanne’s own magnificent home) are decorated with unconstrained care, and tasteful works of art - all with a subtle African flavour – adorn the walls. The detail extends outside too, with giant cacti and intriguing sculptures accentuating various walls and open spaces around the buildings, while on the lawn stooping metal birds and tortoises cause you to stop, look and look again.

The guest units each have a large bedroom with an en-suite bathroom. All the bathrooms have showers and are decorated with paintings and kelims. The units have single and double beds to choose from, as well as heated floors for the wintertime. All linen is 100% hand-embroidered linen. The facilities can sleep six adults and four to five children. The bedrooms in the guest units have private, shady little stoeps where you can relax and enjoy drinks and conversation.

A good night’s sleep is guaranteed by the combination of the complimentary Montagu Muscadel sweet wine and the crisp 100% Percale cotton sheets, which are designed by Julie Lombard, from Turning Leaves. After awakening to the sounds of various indigenous birds, you may make your way to the breakfast area, where, depending on the weather, Jeanne will serve you breakfast on the patio or in the sunlight breakfast room. Each cottage has under-floor heating to ensure comfort during the cold winter nights.
