Green Fig Guesthouse, Suurbraak

From R200 PPS

 

Overview

The Green Fig Bed and Breakfast started under the name Green Fig Cottage more than 6 years ago with the Buffeljags River and the Langeberg Mountain as boundary. Historically, the Attaqua Tribe occupied the area and because of its natural beauty, they called it Xairu, meaning "beautiful". The earliest Dutch cattle traders translated the name to Paradise. It was established as a mission station in 1812 by the London Mission Society and later in 1875 taken over by the Algemeende Sending Kerk. Till today, almost two hundred years later, the locals, like their ancestors, have retained a connection with the earth and sky in this fynbos-adorned and birdlife- rich region. Donkey carts frequent the streets and horses, sheep and cattle graze in the Gardens behind houses everywhere. In some sense, time has stood still at Suurbraak.

A spacious dining facility can accommodate 30 guests for breakfast, lunch or supper. The 7 rooms all have separate stoeps that offer a beautiful view over the Buffeljags River and Langeberg Mountain Range. The rooms offer privacy although it blends in with the communal garden and court yard. Service is good, rates are reasonable and food is prepared and served in uniquely village style.
There is no doubt that Suurbraak on the R324 is one of the most beautiful villages in the Western Cape. Situated 250km from Cape Town (20km northeast of Swellendam, 32km west of Heidelberg and 24km southwest of Barrydale) next to the Buffeljags River and almost overpowering Langeberg Mountains. Suurbraak is nestled amongst streams of running water and sheltered by giant oaks.

Guest Comments

The service we received was out of this world, nothing was to much trouble. We will definitely be staying there again!.
- Keith Ireland

This was a most refreshing experience - the only reason to keep a window closed is to keep the mosquitoes out!! The guest house is comfortable - we were served delicious tomato bredie and fresh salad for supper.We thoroughly enjoyed the sense of a caring, crime-free community in the village of Zuurbraak -children playing on the green,animals grazing along the road and friendly greetings on our walk around town. Rural peace at its best!
