“Tranquility defined”
Reviewed March 24, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Middelplaas lies in a secluded valley some 10 kms off the R62 near to Calitzdorp and is reached by a good dirt road - secluded but not isolated. Two bedrooms (one double, one single) a living room with aircon; kitchen/diner; shower room. Piping hot water with good water pressure. Simply but comfortably furnished. Lovely outdoor braai facilities (buy meat, especially lamb, from the butcher in Calitzdorp - outstanding). No TV or portable telephone reception but excellent wifi. It has olive trees on two sides, the access road (which is a dead end and carries only the occasional farm vehicle) on a third and open fields with stunning views up into the Swartberg range on the fourth. No light pollution at night means magical skies. A short walk brings one down to the river and a manicured picnic spot with a swimming facility - ideal place on a hot day. Pleasant, easy walk laid out along the river bank. Two interesting walks of different lengths/energy requirements mapped out across the road from the house. Plenty of birdlife to be identified. Some outstanding local drives through or over the Swartberg via poorts or passes respectively provide access to areas of astonishing beauty. There's more than enough to do, if you really need to be up and about - but the real beauty of this place is its peacefulness which encourages sitting under a tree with a good book, or even just sitting. A real recharge for the soul.

“Wonderful”
Reviewed May 28, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Stayed here in May for 3 nights and was wonderfully peaceful. The cottage had everything you needed nice outdoor stoop, beautiful views, sheep,lambs and a zebra on the olive farm and a lovely picnic area on the river . Enjoyed it and would go back again, thank you to the hosts it was a very pleasurable stay.
