We had a very nice and quiet stay at De Molen Guest House. The house was lovely and the beautiful and leafy garden flaunted with herbs and fruit-trees and had a nice little pool. The staff was very friendly, easygoing and accommodating. Breakfast was great with lots of fresh fruit,

Beautiful view from the mountains. it is a very old house with lovely details. Big rooms and a practical bathroom, nothing special. The only thing: you can hear a lot... In the morning an excellent breakfast with an amazing view on the deck. Perfect for a night an visit the environment, not far from CPT airport.

The cottage for two is not suitable for elderly people: cannot be reached by car, from the parking there is a steep lane of 50-100 meters. To the pool there are another steep 50 meters. Furthermore the "living" seems suitable for backpackers, two wooden kitchen chairs for the tv. We booked the cottage for 30 days and paid 14 days...

It was our second time in De Molen Guest House. And we loved it once again! It is a quiet place nicely located on the hill, near all the interesting things we wanted to visit: such as the wine-resorts, golfclubs, beaches, etc.
