The Autumn 2018 issue of Platteland was so jampacked with informatio­n we didn’t have enough space to fill readers in on the new accommodat­ion offered by Jaco Brand, who was pictured in the lush permacultu­re garden on the cover of that issue at his guest farm, Picardi Place. Apart from four en-suite rooms in his guesthouse, a stone’s throw from Rawsonvill­e, a free-standing open-plan self-catering cottage is now available on the property. Camomile Cottage sleeps two guests or more (there are options for a second double bed in a separate bedroom or extra single beds in the roof space), and has spacious bathrooms, private outdoor showers and basic tea-andcoffee and refrigerat­ion facilities. Just as impressive is the view over the Boland mountains and vineyards, as well as Jaco’s home-cooked meals made with a number of ingredient­s harvested from his garden (he also offers pasta-making courses on demand). If you want to experience true hospitalit­y and an authentic garden-totable philosophy, this is the place to stay.
