In the middle of no where with some over grown chickens . Food not great and with another hours driving we could have been in Francourt . A waste of two nights .

Sandy Beatty & Family


la Plume has a quiet and understated charm that soothes as soon as you arrive. The views over the farm, the Karoo desert and the distant mountains make for an amzing backdrop sitting on the verandah sipping tea, or something stronger if desired, while the sunsets behind the mountains. An oasis of peace and tranquility that offers balm to a weary traveller's heart and soul.
