The Covey Guest cottage in the Franschhoek valley

Surrounded by vineyards and located next door to a working winery – The Covey is situated 1.5km outside the village beneath the imposing Middagkrans Mountain.  The cottage, which is next door to the owners house, consists of a living room with galley kitchen, bedroom with king size bed and shower room.  Opening off the living room there is a private stoep and pretty walled flower garden. The cottage is comfortably furnished – 100% percale linen on the bed with feather pillows (or synthetic if you prefer) there are ceiling fans and plantation shutters on the windows. The fully equipped galley kitchen has an electric oven and gas hob, dishwasher and bar height table.  Outside on the stoep there are comfy chairs and a small table for eating al fresco, as well as a weber type BBQ. Beyond the cottage garden there is a tranquil lawn interspersed with mature trees. Use of the swimming pool is by arrangement. There are three lively but friendly dogs!
