Welcome to Botuin Cottage

Botuin Cottages & Olive Farm is situated on the outskirts of Vanrhynsdorp. It is a 5 hectare farm with 400 olive trees. Apart from the olives, we also grow lucern and a wide variety of fruit trees.

We believe in sustainable farming and thus everything is done with love and by hand.  We grow our own vegetables and a wide variety of fruit – pomegranates, quinces and figs, available in season.  We also have a herb garden and guests are welcome to pick some fresh produce.  

Japie manufactures exceptional wooden furniture and all the cottages are equipped with his handwork.  

Salome makes handstitched and handcrafted leather bags on order.


Botuin offers 3 cottages. They are all open-plan units. Kalamata Cottage and Mission Cottage both have one double bed and one single bed. Mission Cottage also has a sleeper couch for a larger family. Frantoio Cottage has 2 single beds in the open-plan area with a separate bedroom with a double bed.
All the Cottages are fully equipped with all kitchen necessities, DSTV, air-conditioning and private braai facilities.


Handcrafted Leather  specially designed, timeless heritage piece made with love and inspired by nature.

All our products are made with love and time.  Each piece of leather is chosen carefully for superior quality and the products are lined with equally superior pigskin.


We have approximately 400 olive trees on the farm: Frantoio, Mission and Kalamata varieties. We produce Extra Virgin Olive Oil as well as table olives and Olive Tapenade.


There are so much more to our area than wine and flowers. Vanrhynsdorp is ideally situated to explore all the different attractions within an 80km radius.


Everything has beauty in it. And everything tells a story. And to me each piece of leather is a living story, a tribute to the majestic animals that will live on forever.
