LeleleLora@Lovedale - legit & lekker
« on: October 22, 2012, 08:32:21 am »
I was hunting around for places to stay and found this



Website 1
Website 2
"LeleleLora@Lovedale is a comfortable fully equipped farm house on the beautiful 400 hectares Free State Lovedale farm close to Reitz overlooking the Wilge River ideal for fishing, 4x 4 excursions and hiking or biking."

Looks like an awesome place and it's only R200/person/night.
I contacted the owner (August) via email and cell, and made a reservation.
The catch is he refuses to give me the specific location of the place until I've paid in full, which to me is very weird. The closest I get is "36km from Reitz".

Anyone know this place? Am I just being paranoid?

I know the owner and his wife, strange that they do not want to give you the specific location  ::)
(Edit: on second thought, this could to avoid the type of thing which happened to Uiltjie and his family recently)

If you are dealing with Marlene Wessels directly, I am sure all will be well.

If you have any specific questions feel free to PM me.

This photo was taken there by my daughter last year.

Groovy. Thanks Dogs.
Heading edited appropriately; I wouldn't want to bring the place into unnecessary disrepute.

I'm dealing with August from Farmstay.co.za.

Looking forward to going! It's only in the middle of November though so there's a bit of a wait :sip:
Will post a RR of the weekend.

Cheers for now.

Final note; WHAT a great spot!

The place has bedding for 9 at most, but it would be crowded. The four of us were very comfortable. The place is kitted beautifully, with great fittings, ceiling fans, marble counters, separate deep freeze, dishwasher...awesome.

I will definitely be returning.

No ride report to speak of unfortunately. The ride there was hurried, and ended with me riding in the dark through the most epic thunderstorm the Free State could muster. How I was struck by lightning I don't know.

The ride back was chilled, but more direct than I would have liked due to a pet emergency at home  :P

Looks great, a small RR report please and some details.
Just because your past did not turn out like you wanted it to does not mean your marriage will not be better than you ever imagined it could be.
