East of Oudtshoorn, in the Little Karoo, is a gem of a place called Oulap Country House. Designed and built by Jans and Almeri, your hosts, Oulap commands stunning views from the top of its own hilltop.

Outside there is a swimming pool (take care when using the pool as there are no depth markings), while inside you will find a cellar bar, lounges and eclectic libraries of books and films. Almeri's cuisine is excellent and dinner is always a relaxed affair, with lively conversation accompanying a good bottle of wine.
