River View Cottages

Do you ever dream of being in a place so remote and far removed that nothing in life can get to you? Well, River View Cottages situated in Matjiesvlei valley is that kind of place. Today, I was having one of those days where I wanted to escape from reality and I was reminded of our road trip through the Little Karoo to get to River View. River View is just outside of Calitzdorp and is owned by Bronwyn and Colin Lumb, who left the fast paced city life for the quiet Karoo.

Imagine no cellephone reception, the nearest store is a 20 minute drive, the only way to explore the valley surrounds is by foot; having long and lazy meals and reading a book with no distractions… That is what I want right now. Here are a few of the images I took early the morning after our first night and thereafter a few snaps of the cottage interior in the evening.
