Perched on the banks of the Touw River estuary, and cradled in the evergreen forests of the Garden Route National Park, it is the perfect luxurious hide-away from where to explore the wonders of the surrounding area – the pristine beaches, indigenous forests and fynbos, and mountain of this true Eden.
