"Booked at the last minute, not our usual sort of break ... we loved it. Comfortable, private, all the essentials for a self catering stay provided and views to die for. The Grotto/Secret Garden/Hidden Braai area was a highlight. (once we discovered it.) We would love to return."

"we were booked in the green cottage but given the river cottage. it appears that this is the better of the two. on the advert on the website only the green cottage appears. everything worked, there was a lovely inside fireplace with a good pile of dry firewood. in the kitchen there was one missing item being a teapot"

"Our stay was more than just amazing. Arriving at the cottage and hearing the stream was the first highlight. Having the fence was also a bonus, just to make sure the fur friends were safe. We lay in the sun, in the river, had a swim or two, star-gazed and just listened to the nature. The cottage is pretty much equipped with whatever you need, eventhough there is no electricity. We will be coming back!"

"We enjoyed our stay at the La Folie Green Cottage a lot, what a beautiful get away. The Farm makes some wonderful honey and we loved their Cabernet Sauvignon.But watch out, you might miss the most beautiful sunset and scenery, as that the cottage is nestled in between trees. So there is no view but coyness. Also walks around the vineyard & the farm are beautiful."

"One is always a little apprehensive when arriving at a place you have never been to before. Were the reviews you read online honest etc. La Folie Green cottage is truly set in quiet peaceful surroundings with the babbling River and birds as the background music. It is very rustic but with a much welcomed touches - that being the lovely white soft linen and towels. The house is naturally quite dark inside so make sure you arrive before sunset as its a little disorienting if you arrive in the dark. If you are looking for peace and tranquility you have found it. We even managed to immerse ourselves in the small rock pool by the river to cool down.2 small gripes but not biggies - 1) there could of been one or two more comfortable chairs or lounges to relax on. 2) the fridge wasn't very cold so no chilled wine. Luckily we brought enough ice which didn't all melt in the freezer section."

"My wife and I did a last minute booking after searching the internet for a remote , quiet getaway for the week end and boy did we get more than we had bargained for! Just over an hours drive from home we arrived at La Folie Green Cottage, to be met by Mavesh who handed us the keys and explained where everything was. It was like arriving in the middle of the bush with the sound of the nearby river and what sounded like thousands of frogs. We unpacked, poured ourselves a complimentary sherry, and spent the rest of our week end relaxing. Believe me, it is so quiet inside once you have closed the doors the feint hissing sound from the gas fridge is the loudest sound one hears!Saturday morning we enjoyed breakfast on the stoep listening to what appeared to be hundreds of birds in the surrounding trees. Absolutely wonderful.Anita and her husband have paid attention to the minutest of detail, to the point where I would quite honestly say that many of our 4 and 5 star hotels could come and learn a thing or two. Never before have we stayed over at a similarself catering that has been as tidy and organised as this and the fact that there is NO electricity was just the cherry on the top. We will most definitely be back."
