Situated on one of the world’s most beautiful mountain passes, Clouds Wine and Guest Estate is one of the jewels of the Helshoogte. The relatively small, private estate is a working farm that still produces its own wine. It also offers premium guest accommodation that blends designer luxury with all the modcons. A stylish destination surrounded by incredible views, a stay at Clouds is difficult to forget.
The estate came to pass because a Dutch couple holidayed in South Africa back in the year 2000, and fell in love with the wine, the food, the landscape and, the historical connections with their homeland… Great lovers of wine and good design, Paul Burema and Jolanda van Haperen dreamed of owning their own wine farm. A dream that finally came true when they were able to purchase a modest estate with extraordinary views, a guesthouse and a set of villas.
They then set about remodelling the existing guesthouse into a contemporary structure that cleverly opened up to the views. They also landscaped the grounds, and brought in Dutch designer pieces and South African art for the interiors. And voila, Clouds as we know it today was born!
