LIFESTYLE

 

This is a serene way of life; a mixture of country and small village living.  The reserve is a gated community in that there is a main access gate and a fence surrounding the 291 hectare property. Plots are located in a central grid on the property with each erf  separated from the other by a conservancy area of fynbos.  You have the sense of belonging to a community but also being private.

The vast Agulhas Plain harbours some of the richest biodiversity on earth. L’ Agulhas Nature reserve and its surroundings land and water offer a truly unique and tranquil lifestyle for its residents with an utterly amazing quality of life
