friends of mine are going todie 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.
Christina Salway and John Moskowitz spent weekends from October to May renovating their 700-square-foot 1920s cottage - their first home purchase. A converted garage on the left is now a living room that has been enclosed with salvaged windows and glass-paned doors.
