The view from the Vrede Vallei is just amazing, you are surrounded by green mountains and there is nothing else around, only hills, domestic animals and a lake. The room is cosy and has a nice patio just in front of it. The breakfast is served in the owners living room, a beautiful big open space with a fireplace and...

Wonderful little gem around 8km outside Swellendam - with perfect hosts Lundi and Bennie. Farm breakfasts on beautiful old Porcelain plates (different each morning)! Farm atmosphere of ducks, chickens dog and cats - but never intrusive. A real pamper if you want to chill away from city lights. The access road is really not a problem - despite other reviews...

Away from stress, pressure and world issues... lundi and Benny are very kind and always willing to help you. They want you to be on vacation at Vrede Vallei. The rooms are basic but clean and even if we would loved to have WiFi.... we did not miss it!

Lundi and her husband lives there. They host guests in 3 available independent rooms. 2 rooms are small and room no...

The road, leading to the establishment is a bit of a hassle. But, as soon as you on hilltop. It certainly, looks worth it and definitely is. The hostess is really welcoming. The morning view, the breakfast was amazing. The bed is comfortable. Really, had a good time.

Wonderful place to stay. Out of the hustle and bustle of town but close enough to pop in for an eat or drink. Lundi was extremely friendly, helpful and looked after our every need. We did not get time to tackle any of the walking or MTB trails but I am keeping this place on my list for the next...

We arrived a bit later than we had hoped, so we missed getting to hang out on the little terrace in front of the rooms. Lundi was super welcoming, the bedding was very comfortable, and breakfast was great. We all loved the spinach and potato fritters! The garden is lovely and attracts hummingbirds with its beautiful flowers. The dirt road...

We arrived late with a taller than usual 6 year old. Our host, Lundi went out of her way in trying to accommodate the little one on a couch, and moving everything to a different room as my husband struggles a bit with the smell of fireplaces. Nothing was of too much effort, and the main house was open for...

Awesome view, hospitality and equipped room. The fire place in the room was the cherry on top. Close to Swellendam where you can enjoy a lunch and explore more of our history. Thank you for a lovely stay!! We will be back in the summer.
