When they imagined a home in Franschhoek, James and Marc had a similar vision: to recreate the life they both experienced as boys growing up in Italy, dining Alfresco and roaming freely in nature, surrounded by the sound of cicadas.

Fly Fishing

Begin the day with your local, skilled guide collecting you early in the morning. 

The fish tend to be most active from 8 am until 12 pm. Gear up and let the local pro show you the tricks of the trade for casting your way to a prize trout. This is no ordinary day of fishing though, one of the best-kept secrets known as the ‘Cape Streams’ awaits exploring! 

Renowned as one of the top stream fisheries in the world for stalking wild trout, a series of pristinely managed rivers in the Du Toits Kloof Mountain range, a mere 25 minutes drive from 7 Koppies, provides the perfect backdrop for your day out. Cool, crystal waters and breath-taking views come part and parcel with your private experience. Changing flies and all equipment is handled by your guide and when the fish aren’t biting- the snacks and beverages are at least flowing.

The Berg River Dam is another hidden ‘outdoor’ gem with numerous trails to explore, leading to spectacular views over our valley.
