Farm Stay

Description

Experience Overberg hospitality at Rouxwil Country House – whether you savour their excellent cuisine, do a personalised farm tour, sip sundowners in nature, or just relax and be pampered and spoilt!

You will be welcomed with typical Overberg hospitality and, from arrival, emphasis is placed on individual interests and comfort. With its relaxed atmosphere, this will soon feel like home to you.

Rouxwil is a working wheat and sheep farm, situated in the heart of the Overberg, between Hermanus and Franschoek, and close to the towns of Greyton and Caledon, 
1 hour from Cape Town.

You will find it nestled between vast, rolling hills of wheat fields, orchards and majestic mountains, covered in protea fynbos – providing an ever changing kaleidoscope of colours, a paradise for landscape photographers.

Thys and O’nel Roux are the owners of Rouxwil and here they welcome all their vistitors with their warm hospitality. This young and energetic couple love to share what they have with guests.

Through years of experience they know their guests will be their friends before their leave.

Facilities

On your arrival at Rouxwil you will be struck by how two worlds combine, as you make yourself at home in the luxurious suites at the heart of their friendly farm.

Rouxwil offers three luxurious individually decorated suites, with all the modern comforts you need, in private spacious surroundings, with magnificent, unspoiled views.

Hillside Suites:  Three luxuriously designed suites in complete seclusion,with all the modern comforts you need.  From your own private verandah you will look out onto a view of the valley. Look down across the farm dam which is covered from July till December with “waterblommetjies” – a fragrant water flower which is a delicacy of the Overberg
Stone courtyards, with calming water features, embrace your full, spacious bathroom. This will make your feel you’re in your own private paradise.

HILLSIDE OAK:  Rekindle memories of a forgotten grace and surround yourself with the Colonial grandeur of oak, leather and brass.

HILLSIDE MAHOGANY:  Here contemporary design awaits you, with beautiful attention to detail, right up to a “double trouble” shower. Here honeymooners are specially pampered in an environment

HILLSIDE TEAK:  Enjoy to be spoiled in luxury and comfort in a combination of teak and iron work. Laze in your king size bed, with stone designed head board, and enjoy the views from your bed. Shower under African stars in your private outside shower, or shower together in a walk in double shower.

Activities

FARM TOURS

Thys’s knowledge of the area makes the personalised farm tour an unforgettable experience. Thys goes to great lengths to personally show you what the Overberg is all about.

Every season is completely different and with an expert guide like Thys, it will come to life for you.

During the tour, enjoy convivial sundowners in nature, providing an ever changing kaleidoscope of colours, a paradise for landscape photographers. Abundant bird life, and watch the national bird, the Blue Crane in its natural habitat. You will see Blue Crane nests and eggs, as well a baby Blue Cranes in season.

Autumn [April to May] is the wheat planting season and a very busy time for the farmer. You will be able to experience first hand what it takes to put bread on the table!

During the winter months [June to August] the Overberg is a patchwork of different shades of green and although some call it the secret season, it should not be, as this is one of the most beautiful times of the year on the farm. The homestead is surrounded with some of the finest pastoral scenery and sheep and their lambs graze right up to the garden fence. Thys will demonstrate with his sheepdog how sheep is handled with the greatest ease.

Our spring begins in September, when the Caledon area is in full bloom.

At the heart of the Cape Floral Kingdom, the countryside is rich in native flowers like Fynbos and Proteas, not to mention the endless orchards with their pink and white blossoms. As far as the eye can see, the wheat is now a sea of green waves in the breeze, broken here and there by bright yellow patches of flowering Canola.

The wheat starts to ripen in early summer and if you pay a visit during Harvest time in October and November, the hills will be patterned in a quilted tapestry of cut wheat.

The only problem you will face is deciding when to come to Rouxwil. You may find the only solution is to return year after year.
