RHODES STOEPSITFEES 2018 … a great success!

Standard

The stoeps were all swept and ready for our annual Rhodes Stoepsitfees 2018 last weekend!  Great conversations with the locals were had on the stoeps with food and drinks on offer.  The vibe in the village was really awesome!

Art, photography, piano recitals, wool spinning, pottery, felting, fun run, history chats, spa, open gardens, vegetable market and gin tasting were some of the stoep events on offer.  A highlight was most definitely our special guest Ludwig Taschner, who gave us a serious education on growing and caring for roses and has most generously donated 100 roses to our village.  We look forward to having Ludwig back again next year!

We are also proud to say that our village has been shortlisted for ‘Town of the Year’!

Make sure you book your accommodation in advance for next year’s Stoepsitfees:

Rhodes Cottages together with ex biker, avid traveler, teacher and tour guide, Charl Wessells, organized a hugely successful bike rally over the past long weekend in Rhodes.  The bikers explored our mountains and passes and enjoyed the hospitality of strategically planned brunches and dinners en route by our local farming families in the Rhodes, New England, Wartrail and Bokspruit areas.  Talks on our local botany, geology and history were given by some of our interesting characters.   Looking forward to the next one!
