  • Hi, would I have the whole place to myself if I book?

    Hi Yes you would, but you would only have access to the amount of rooms you book. So if you are 2 people, you get 1 room. The other rooms are locked, so while you would have the house to yourselves, you only have access to the one bedroom.

Allie's Cottage is your home-away-from home, in that you just need your personal effects to move in and feel snug and comfortable. The cottage has a lovely outdoor covered braai / BBQ area, with comfy seating, overlooking the garden and pool, which personifies a typical South African outdoors lifestyle. The three bedrooms are comfortable, and each has their own aircon, which you will appreciate particularly in our hot summer months. Allie's Cottage has a Flat screen TV with DSTV, off-street parking and its own alarm system. Please note that WiFi is NO longer available at the cottage, as the power outages have wreaked havoc with it. We look forward to welcoming you to Allie's Cottage, and to the Riebeek Valley.

I enjoy travelling, reading and spending time with my family. My husband and I worked in the travel industry, and have been fortunate enough to travel quite substantially. I have found on my travels that I prefer comfort, practicality and warmth over bells and whistles, and that is the ambience we have tried create at Allie's Cottage.

Riebeek Kasteel & Riebeek West are two of the oldest towns in South Africa. Riebeek Kasteel boasts the oldest hotel in South Africa, along with numerous well known and highly rated eateries. The town of Riebeek Kasteel is the more 'quirky, lively and arty' of the two towns, and is home to more or less 3000 residents including some of South Africa’s most well-known artists attracted by the picturesque surroundings of the valley, as the village and surrounds are especially popular for its aesthetic beauty and rural atmosphere. ​The town is referred as “the best kept secret of the Western Cape” and "Franschhoek of 15 years ago"
