Annie le Roux - Owner

“In a corner of the world overtaken by modernity, Stone Cottage is as authentic as they come! What we have here is an exhilarating blast from the past, in the form of one of Plett’s oldest (if not the oldest) holiday homes.


Built by the Le Roux family nearly a century ago and still in the same family today, Stone Cottage is a museum of nostalgia and rich artefact. It started with the Le Roux clan from Uniondale loading the ox-wagon with ostrich eggs, fruit, veggies and a turkey or two, and rock-’n-rolling their way to Plett for the annual summer hols."
