Fraai Uitzicht

Fraai Uitzicht

A manor house, welcoming cottages, elegant gardens, and historic winery combine at the exceptional Fraai Uitzicht Historic Wine and Guest Farm. On scenic route 62 in the picturesque Robertson Valley, this 1798 Cape Dutch style farm is surrounded by the Langeberg Hills and is one of South Africa’s top guesthouse destinations.

Nine individual cottages and suites cater to a variety of guest needs, from the budget-friendly Garden Suites to the more upscale and spacious Cottages, which feature bathrobes, unique oval bath, walk-in shower, outdoor shower, extra-length king-size bed, handcrafted Egyptian cotton linen, under-floor heating, DSTV, and fireplace. All suites and cottages offer bar, fresh fruit, tea and coffee facilities, terrace, and air conditioning.

The on-site restaurant, Justin Bonello @ Fraai Uitzicht 1798, serves up fine cuisine in an informal setting. Traditional AGA stove, friendly service, country-style cuisine, seasonal fresh dishes, and hand-picked herbs combine for an experience guests keep coming back for. Unique desserts and the best of local wines finish off a meal in style.

A visit to Fraai Uitzicht’s wine cellar is an experience all its own. As the oldest wine cellar in the valley, it boasts original woodwork, handcrafted beams and some of the most spectacular wines in the area. Each year, only 5,000 to 6,000 bottles are produced on the farm, where grapes flourish on the cool southern slopes. Produced under the Klass Boogds label, the resulting vintage is a sought-after and complex Merlot.

Many satisfied guests return year after year, and new friends constantly gather at Fraai Uitzicht. A recent guest commented, “Heading for Stellenbosch we were absolutely lucky to have found Fraai Uitzicht guesthouse and winery. The access from the parking area to the entrance of the main building promises the best there can be and indeed … dreams come true. We were three couples and stayed in great rooms with all possible comfort and amenities. … We had dinner in their restaurant that serves excellent food both for quality and presentation. The host and his staff are most friendly and even entertaining. Breakfast was fabulous with a bottle of pink quality sparkling wine served. Heaven!! The establishment is perfectly located amidst its vineyards and with great views of the surrounding mountains. Excellent value for money. We would recommend this place to all who visit the area.”
