friends of mine are going to die laaitjie in robertson for a weekend away.

Die Laaitjie is so called as it nestles in the smallest and last of the Dassieshoek valleys in the Langeberg mountains. Despite being so completely remote, the farm is only 7 kilometres from the centre of Robertson. The farm is situated alone in a bowl made by the surrounding mountains. 25 Ha of the farm consists of peach, pear and apricot trees, all of which fill the valley with colourful blossoms during the spring months. The mountains themselves are criss-crossed with hiking, walking and horse-riding trails suitable for all levels of expertise. Enjoy a gentle stroll to the river before breakfast, or spend a whole day exploring the ravines.

    it’s actually not that expensive at all, R250 per person per night for the self catering cottages and R500 per person per night for the main house (for 8 people)

    Die Laaitjie is one of my favourite places in the world! I’ve been there many times, and stayed both in the cottages and the manor house. I have also pointed people in that direction to get engaged at the rockpools, or simply escape the city – http://www.guywithcamera.co.za/latest-work/escape-to-robertson/
