Just 5 km into the beautiful Hemel-en-Aarde Valley, you'll come across Earth Cottage. It's the ideal self-catering breakaway - on a small equestrian farm, on the Hermanus Wine Route.

Le logement
Bordering the renowned Hamilton Russell Vineyards and flanked by equally famous Bouchard Findlayson Estate, Earth Cottage is perfectly positioned for anyone wanting to explore the Walker Bay Wine District's beautiful wine route and its 15 estates.

You'll have the entire semi-detached cottage to yourselves.

Earth Cottage is comfortable and cosy.

It is the ideal self-catering bridal retreat or stay-over for a couple, or perhaps a family of three. Basic DSTV comes standard. So does free, uncapped Internet.

The split-level lounge and dining area offers a cool retreat in summer. Relaxed indoor/outdoor living is a feature of the cottage. Our Arabian horses are almost always in sight.

In the kitchen you'll find a four-burner gas stove, microwave/convection/grill oven combination, kettle, a large double-door fridge/freezer, washing machine and ample cutlery and crockery.

Towels, linen and fire wood will be ready for you.

Our water comes from the mountain falls. The brownish colour of the water – in the taps and in the fish pond – is the result of the roots of fynbos plants “dyeing” it.

At Earth Cottage, you'll become intensely aware of nature, even though it is a working smallholding. We live close to the earth here.

The pleasures of the rest of the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley, Hermanus, Walker Bay, the lagune and Onrust are just down the road. La Vierge Restaurant is a mere 2 km away.

The entire cottage will be your home during your stay. It is a fully self-contained cottage, with its own access steps from the parking area, which is reached by tarred road. No need to travel on any dirt road. The cottage is separated from the main house by an art studio, so it is private and orientated west while the house faces east.

ACCESSIBILITY: A flight of stairs leads down to the cottage. The steps are uneven in height and width, and could be daunting or challenging for older or infirm vistors and people with special needs. Help is at hand to carry your luggage; just ask. Inside, there’s one step from kitchen to lounge, and another from lounge to bathroom. Two steps lead down from the lounge to the bedroom.

We live in the main house on the premises, so your hosts, Tino and Liane will be there to welcome you.

The town of Hermanus, once a quaint fishing village, offers Africa's best land-based whale watching. More or less parallel to the coastline, the Hemel-en-Aarde Vallei (meaning Heaven and Earth Valley) is a fertile tract of land where vineyards and orchards offer their abundance. A number of famous wine estates produce and sell their prized wines here in the valley, and many of these establishments have their own restaurants.

If you're traveling from Cape Town, it's easy: before you reach Hermanus,
about 3 km out of town, there is a large intersection with traffic lights.
On your left, you'll see a Great Wall. That 's the Hemel-en-Aarde Estate..
Across the road there is an Engen garage (petrol station). You need to
turn left, onto the R320, the Hemel-en-Aarde Road, away from the coast. 5
km along the road, you'll see the entrance to Hamilton Russell Vineyards.
About 300 m further, a road marked with a blue concrete sign that reads
"Mountain Rose" leads right, off the R320. 

Take this little road and stay on the tar. Do not turn off onto any dirt road. About 300 metres further you'll reach the only building, to your right. This is Earth Cottage.

THE WATER has a brownish colour. This is pure mountain spring water, simply tainted by the roots of fynbos plants. It is safe for cooking, washing up, bathing and drinking. If you’re squeamish, don’t worry: drinking water is provided.

THIS IS A WORKING FARM. This is a place of animals and we live in harmony with nature. Faunae include insects and other creepy crawlies, fynbos mice, our beautiful Golden Retrievers who will be your charming neighbours, the Arabian horses, various birds and insects, especially in summer. We prefer to use fly screens rather than pesticides, and to relocate - rather than eradicate - any pesky critters.

Où se situe le logement

Hermanus, Cap-Occidental, Afrique du Sud

Earth Cottage is near the whale-watching coast of Hermanus, on the Wine Route that runs through the beautiful Hemel-en-Aarde Valley.

The cottage is tucked away on a smallholding in the valley, and yet it's only 6 km from the beach. You'll be within easy reach of the 15 wine estates long the R320 route. No need to travel on any dirt road, even though the cottage is on a smallholding; a tarred road leads right to your garden gate!
