It's hard to miss, but not easy to access. You have to get keys from elsewhere to fully explore the monument and the museum. It just sounded like too much admin and I wasn't that keen on going to the place across to get the...More

At the outskirts of this extremely calm and peacefull village you will find this monument as a remembrance of the limited yet important french influence in Sout-Africa, tolerated by the Dutch. Remarkable is the total absence of barbed wire or brick walls around the hotels...More

The monument itself is not much to see. However the setting in the surrounding landscape is beautiful. The history of the French Huguenots and the wine making is also interesting.

We took a stall to this memorial monument during the morning before it was to hot, and it was really intresting to read about the history. It is also very beautiful and the surroundings are amazing. Worth a visit to be familiar with the history.
