Since 2010 Vygevallei, Vygevallei Estate has served as a cozy and inviting escape for guests from around the world. Situated on the R27 on the West Coast just under an hour from the thriving city of Cape Town, Vygevallei Estate makes the perfect getaway.

Here at Vygevallei Estate, we combine our passion for tourism with our dedication to top-notch customer service to provide our guests with nothing but the best experience when they stay with us. Our secluded location allows our guests to feel at one with nature, while remaining within an hour of several popular destinations. We’re available 24/7 to accommodate whatever you need, whether it’s fresh linens or recommendations for nearby activities.


We would love to host you!

Whether you’re a local looking for a secluded weekend getaway or an out-of-towner looking to explore Cape Town without staying in the city, Vygevallei Estate provides everything you need for a relaxing stay. Guests can socialise in the common lounge, enjoy meals in the open dining area, or take in breathtaking lake views from the veranda. In the evenings, grab a refreshing beverage from our Vygevallei Farm Stall and enjoy it by the glow of the outdoor fire pit.

Our seven spacious rooms each come equipped with adjoining bathrooms, complimentary WiFi, DSTV, and an in-room mini fridge. For larger groups or guests who want a full ‘home away from home’ experience, we also offer two full-sized cottages. Each cottage features three bedrooms, a kitchen, a bathroom, and a spacious lounge. Regardless of whether you book a room or a cottage, all of our stays include complimentary parking on the property.
