Farm Cottages
Arolela
     
Only 15 km's from Botrivier!

You and your family come to relax on the farm away from the city life, enjoying the “bush jacuzzi” while having a braai and sipping a glass of wine.

The kiddies enjoy farm live when we expose them to all the types of farm animals on the farm. They have everyday contact with the animals by feeding orphan lambs and calves, looking for eggs in chicken cages, visiting Klasie the donkey and other farm animals.

Guest accommodation is in the form of 2 revamped farm houses De Vlei and Klipfontein with nice internal features (wooden floors) and warm décor. De Vlei is 5km from Klipfontein. De Vlei can host 7 guests on beds, Klipfontein can host 13 guests on beds.

Arolela is a guest farm in the Western Province of South Africa. It co-exists with a working farm, producing wheat, barley, oats and sheep. The setting is typical Overberg with lots of blue crane birds.
It is 1.5 hours drive from Cape Town.
