INFO & ACCOMMODATION
We've planned a beautiful weekend escape, up the authentic western coastline of Africa to Lambert's Bay and we want you to join us! We will retreat at the most charming fisherman's cottage which is surrounded by fynbos and humming with birdlife. There is a vlei just past the fynbos ahead of you, and the sea is a 5 min walk from the cottage for a stroll/swim along the deserted beach (or a fun surf at Yoyo's). This really is the perfect getaway for those of you who need to switch off from city living and connect with yourselves again.
The best thing about the house is that there is no electricity, so is the evening ritual of lighting all the paraffin and solar lanterns come dusk. There is a long stoep where the daily yoga classes are held; headed by a long table and fireplace on one end for sharing meals and stories. The other highlight is the hot outdoor shower with just you and the elements. The cottage sleeps 6; between the main bedroom (king bed for 2), loft (2 singles) and built in 2 single beds beside the large indoor fireplace. This allows for an intimate weekend of really getting to know each other and small and personal yoga classes and conversations.
Climb into one of the hammocks on the stoep with your book, magazine or journal or enjoy a delicious afternoon siesta before the evening yin yoga class.
All food for the weekend is catered for which includes: dinner on Friday night with a glass of wine; breakfast, lunch and supper on Saturday and a brunch on Sunday. Yogi tea, fresh coffee and crunchy apples are waiting for you after morning yoga. Please bring any special milk or snacks that you can't live without and your drinks of choice for the weekend (we do love our sundowners).
Lambert's Bay is a 3 hour drive from Cape Town. You can arrive any time from 1pm onwards on the Friday but by 5.30pm latest, if possible, to make the welcome yoga class. We will send you our recommended route to get there.
