Its trim, perfectly manicured grounds, tidy white buildings with thatched roofs and centuries old buildings will make you think a section of Flanders has been magically transported to South Africa. In a way it was: Steenberg is the oldest farm in the valley, having been established by the Dutch in 1682 to provide provisions for ships on the spice route.
Tip: The grounds are basically level with smooth paths and you will encounter very few steps.
Tip: The bedrooms are also upstairs. If a flight of stairs bothers you, request one of the 21 rooms in the Manor House - on the National Register - and Barn.
What to do there?
Count on manager Gaby Gramm to keep it all humming smoothly.
Need pampering? You will love the on-site spa and hairdresser.
