The original Piet-My-Vrou Cottage (before renovations)

Surrounded by rolling hills of yellow and green, lies our quaint farm, Drayton. The majestic abutting mountain has been watching over her since the beginning of the Overberg.

This paradise has been our home for the last twenty years. Our loving and random family consist of Mom René-Louise, Dad Tienie and the kids – Kobus, Lize and Michiel. Drayton is a working sheep-and-grain farm. Each year we plant Canola, wheat, barley and oats with lots of love and care.

If you listen closely, you will hear the bleating of the sheep, the calling of the Piet-my-Vrou and the burbling of the nearby stream.

Your hosts Tienie and René-Louise

We highly recommend taking a leisurely stroll any time of the day to explore our beautiful farm. You will be enchanted by the breathtaking scenery and the soothing silence. Here, sitting around a fire, watching the sun set and enjoying good company is a magical and special experience.

We are only 10 minutes away from Caledon where all of your necessities can be obtained. If you feel like visiting the beach and making a day trip of it, we are only a quick 40-minute drive from the very popular Hermanus. We recommend taking the Hemel-en-Aarde road, as it leads through a picturesque valley with award winning wine farms and family friendly restaurants.

Our farm, with all it has to offer, can be enjoyed by old and young. We guarantee that you will leave feeling recharged, rejuvenated and relaxed.

We had a lovely weekend at Piet-my-Vrou cottage and the children absolutely loved staying on the farm. Rene-Louise was absolutely brilliant, so friendly, and baked delicious bread. Thank you very much!

Rene brought us delicious, freshly baked bread to enjoy with our dinner and Tienie brought firewood. We spent the afternoon sitting on the patio and marveling at the incredible bird life in the area. The water is mountain water so not good for drinking, but perfect for everything else. We had warm showers and comfy beds. It was a lovely, relaxing way to spend the evening.

The containers are just the right size if you need a soft, clean, bed to climb into after a day mountain biking in the area. We enjoyed our stay – and especially reflecting on the adventures of the day while sitting by the fire at night.

Iets anders met ‘n pragtige uitsig op die berge. Hier kan jy kom rustig raak. Luister na al die voëls se gekwetter, hoor die kraanvoëls en uile en kyk vir die berge en mooi sonsondergang.

Baie lekker, mooi en rustig. Het baie lekker gebly, het soveel karakter, wens ons kon bietjie langer bly. Was ook lekker naby aan die trou-venue.

Thank you very much we had a wonderful time and totally fell in love with the place. We will definitely be booking with you again for another stay.

If you’re looking to ‘unplug’ for a while … go stay at Piet-my-Vrou to experience the truly authentic farm atmosphere. The cottage is quaint and has all the basics your heart could desire! We’ve been back for a visit (short and longer stays) 5 times … and hope to come back again many more times!
