Die Laaitjie is tucked away in the mountains, at the base of Arangieskop, about 7km from Robertson on the Dassieshoek Road. It consists of 330 ha of fynbos and hiking trails, waterfalls, rock pools as well as four dams - a bird watchers paradise. The area is also popular with local trail runners and mountain bikers who love the pristine nature of the mountains. The curious name is from when one family owned most of the area, and as the smallest of the farms and last in a row, they named it from the 'tag' game where the prize is hidden in a tiny drawer.
The owners first discovered the farm in 2006 and immediately fell in love with the stunning natural surroundings. The house was somewhat neglected and over the years a series of unsympathetic additions had been made. What followed was an extensive renovation project that culminated in the stylish yet comfortable house it is today.
Die Laaitjie is ideal for an escape from the city - only a 2 hour drive from Cape Town. Three fully equipped two bedroomed cottages, and a main house with 3 bedrooms.
Despite being so completely remote, the farm is only 7 kilometres from the centre of Robertson. A long, scenic gravel road leads to Die Laaitjie, a 330 Ha farm situated alone in a bowl made by the surrounding mountains.
