There is a whole lot of magic when meandering through towering trees and mountainous landscapes and unplugging from the hustle and bustle of city life and plugging into the serenity of Mother Nature is a beautiful way to recharge your batteries.
What better than with a quaint cabin in the woods, right?
The Western Cape is home to a few of these magical spots, including Protea Farm which is nestled in the famous KOO Valley.
This valley is the perfect destination for nature lovers and those looking for something a bit more rustic, with a sea of greenery and rugged landscapes ensuring picture-perfect views.
The farm itself is located on the slopes of the famous Langeberg Mountains with tractor excursions available for visitors in search of the perfect views.
However, it’s the farm’s Pine Tree accommodation that will have you giggling like a kid on Christmas day. This peaceful cottage is located on the edge of one of the farm’s dams and is ideal for couples looking to enjoy a romantic getaway.
Relax on the deck and soak up the tranquillity of this location or head out and do a little exploring, there are tons to do and countless hiking trails to trod.
The cottage is the epitome of “no fuss, no muss” as it provides an open pan accommodation with all the necessities you will need, including a fully-equipped kitchen.
There are also a few other accommodation options on Protea Farm with Panorama and Waterblommetjie being popular options due to their spaciousness.
The soft murmur of nature and a chance to kick back and relax? There’s nothing more we would rather ask for.
