J’aime la Mer (I Love the Sea), offers up to 4 guests the opportunity to stay right on the beach in the beautiful fisherman's village of Paternoster. Only fifteen meters from the high-water mark, this ideally situated free standing self-catering cottage offers the best views of endless beaches. From here one can explore, delight in breathtaking sunsets or hike to nearby Tieties Bay and the Cape Columbine Lighthouse, built in 1936 - the last manned lighthouse to be built in South Africa.

During August the landscape bursts into colour when it's flower time on the West Coast. Whales and dolphins are a common sight in the pristine waters of the Atlantic ocean.
