The unit is furnished with antique furniture, carpets and paintings collected over many years. The large open plan kitchen and lounge has a fireplace to warm cold Winter’s nights and in Summer a glass sliding door leading to the veranda, allows a cool breeze to enter. Stunning views are to be had over the Riviersonderend Mountains and Klein Karoo.
