Volmoed Cottage


In the middle of the Klein Karoo

Volmoed Cottage was renovated by our family with the idea to use as a week-end break-away. We have a busy life with four young children. The task seemed impossible at first. The cottage is more than a hundred years old. Crooked doors and off centre walls is part of the beauty of this little house.

It is perfectly safe here and we do not even lock our doors. This house is my family’s favourite place and I would like to share it with you Please Note: No wifi!!! There is cable TV….something I did not want,but had to give in to for watching Sport. Relax here and enjoy your loved ones!
