Perfect Escape Into Karoo Living
It’s rare to find a country retreat as unique and authentic as Penhill Farm Estate. A scenic 75-minute drive away from Cape Town, you’ll spot its towering twin palms long before the outcrop of white-washed buildings set on endless emerald lawns comes into view. This stunning oasis set in the Nuy Valley offers guests a perfect escape into karoo living.
Find the Nuy Valley on the West Coast Way Cape Way Route. Turn off the R60 and onto the Nuy Valley Road into a pastural delight. Flat farmlands stretch for miles on either side, but the road looks directly on to the majestic Langeberg Mountains. The air is dry and still and this rural wonderland makes you want to kick off your shoes, talk in a whisper and gaze at your surroundings. Along about ten kilometers of quiet rural road you will find a few excellent wineries, the Willow Creek Olive Estate and the luxurious Leipzig Country House and winery. A detour into this lush valley is well worth it.
