    If ever you need tranquility, then heading to merry widow! peaceful 'lekker' and memorable place with a charming host who is mindful and also an 'eccellente' chef de cuisine. Don't missed the lovely local market on saturdays. We can't wait to come back!

    Stayed in the Stone cottage, outfitted lovely, very cold but the gas heater and electric sheets made all the difference for a great sleep on a great King-sized bed. Well positioned in this quaint little farm town. Next to local market and interesting shops.

Don't expect something clinical but the beds are comfortable, with beautiful linen and each room has a lovely little coffee/tea station with a small bar fridge. An...More
