Conveniently surrounded by  Stilbaai, the blue flag beach, Albertinia home of the Aloe  and world class golf courses.

The Country House was established in the early 1800's on the farm Klein Soebattersvlakte between Riversdale and Stilbaai. History and fond memories were transferred into A Farm Story Country House in 2008 with today's accommodation in yesterdays style and traditional hospitality.
