Het Kasteel op Champagne Ridge is de perfecte vakantie voor degenen die vrede en rust willen hebben. Zet op het balkon en geniet van de ongelooflijke uitzichten, terwijl antilopen weiden op het zoete gras voor dit zelfstandige milieuvriendelijke huis. Het kasteel ligt op slechts 18 km van de stad Kiserian op een weersweg weg in het hart van Masai, weg van de drukte van de stad. Het is niet ongebruikelijk om kudden koeien en geiten weg te geven, terwijl de kudde u welkom in het gebied

The Castle on Champagne Ridge is the perfect getaway for those who want peace and tranquillity. Sit on the balcony and soak in the incredible views while antelope graze on the sweet grass in front of this self sufficient eco friendly home.

The Castle is located only 18kms from Kiserian town on an all weather dirt road in the heart of Masai land away from the hustle and bustle of the city. It is not unusual to have to give way to herds of cows and goats while herdsman welcome you to the area

De ruimte

Let op: de kaart die onze locatie toont is onjuist, dit komt doordat G Maps onze locatie niet herkent! Wij zijn gevestigd op Champagne Ridge, die van Magadi Road ligt vlakbij het verre einde van de Ngong Hills niet de Ngong Town End; Die ook verklaart waarom we zo'n geweldig uitzicht en wild hebben! Het kasteel op Champagne Ridge loopt op zonne- en windkracht en we oogsten ons eigen water; Zo erg milieuvriendelijk. Het huis is een open plan ontwerp dat de verbluffende uitkijkpunten en buiten leefruimtes maximaliseert. De woonkamer heeft de meest comfortabele Italiaanse leren bank die een middagslap garandeert. De open keuken biedt het beste uitzicht op elke keuken in Afrika. De grote mahonie-eettafel is perfect om te genieten van maaltijden met familie en vrienden. Het balkon is uitgerust met een openlucht eettafel met comfortabele safari stijl stoelen, terwijl de BBQ grill iedereen verleidt om diner te grillen! Er zijn een paar luie stoelen die perfect zijn om te chillen terwijl u een goed boek leest of bij het uitzicht kijkt of voor die sneaky cat nap. Het Kasteel op Champagne Ridge heeft ook een bibliotheek gevuld met een scala aan boeken die u kunt genieten tijdens uw verblijf en enkele spelletjes zoals monopolie, kaarten en domino's. Andere nuttige items zijn een tv en dvd-speler met een reeks films op dvd en een ipod docking station, zodat u naar uw favoriete muziek kunt luisteren. We hebben ook een waterfilter meegeleverd, zodat u geen flessen water bij u hoeft te brengen (beter voor het milieu!) En er is thee, koffie en suiker, evenals zout en peper en een paar andere specerijen in de keuken. Er zijn 5 slaapplaatsen, 2 slaapkamers beneden en 3 slaapplaatsen op de mezzanine verdieping gescheiden met een unieke indoor canvas tent! De mezzanine heeft een overdekt balkon en woonkamer met een prachtig uitzicht op de Rift Valley. Het gebied is zeer veilig om te lopen bovenop de klif of als u meer energieke uitoefening bent, dan kunt u binnen en buiten de vallei wandelen. We hebben een paar stamgasten die hun mountainbikes of motorfietsen brengen om het gebied te verkennen. . Wandelen in onze omgeving is fantastisch, we hebben een natuurlijke lente en traditionele Masai grotten die bezocht kunnen worden (Masai grotten die niet door de ouders of jonge Masai krijgers worden gebruikt); Er is ook een enorme oude gedraaide gele acacia boom die je zal afvragen hoe het vorm kreeg! De uitzichten zijn ongelooflijk en als we geluk hebben, zullen we dik dik, rock hyrax, vervet apen en eland spotten! Wij zijn slechts 10 minuten van het Champagne 4x4 Park een up and coming 4x4 off-road en rally event center. 30 minuten van Kiserian en 45 minuten van Ngong Town.

Please Note: The map showing our location is incorrect, this is due to G Maps not recognising our location! We are located on Champagne Ridge which is off Magadi Road near the far end of the Ngong Hills not the Ngong Town end; which also explains why we have such amazing views and wildlife!

The Castle on Champagne Ridge runs on solar and wind power and we harvest our own water; so very eco friendly.

The house is an open plan design maximising the stunning outlook and outdoor living areas. The living area boasts the most comfortable Italian leather sofa guaranteed to induce an afternoon nap, the open plan kitchen offers the best views of any kitchen in Africa and the large mahogany dining table is perfect to enjoy meals with family and friends.

The balcony is kitted with an outdoor dining table with comfortable safari style chairs while the BBQ grill tempts anyone to grill dinner! There are a couple of lazy chairs which are perfect for chilling while reading a great book or staring at the view or for that sneaky cat nap.

The Castle on Champagne Ridge also has a library filled with a range of books for you to enjoy while staying and some games like monopoly, cards and dominoes.

Other useful items include a TV and DVD player with a range of movies on DVD as well as an ipod docking station so you can listen to your favourite music.

We have also included a water filter so you don't have to bring bottled water with you (better for the environment!) and there is tea, coffee and sugar as well as salt and pepper and a few other spices in the kitchen.

There are 5 sleeping areas, 2 bedrooms downstairs and 3 sleeping areas on the mezzanine floor separated with a unique indoor canvas tent! The mezzanine has an indoor balcony and living area with stunning views of the Rift Valley.

The area is very safe to go walking on top of the cliff or if you are up for more energetic exercise then you can hike in and out of the valley, we have a few regulars who bring their mountain bikes or motor bikes to explore the area.

Hiking in our area is fantastic, we have a natural spring and traditional Masai caves which can be visited (Masai caves subject to not being used by the Elders or young Masai warriors); there is also a huge old twisted yellow acacia tree which will have you wondering how it got its shape! The views are incredible and if we are lucky we will spot dik dik, rock hyrax, vervet monkeys and eland!!

We are located only 10 minutes from Champagne 4x4 Park an up and coming 4x4 off road and rally event centre. 30 minutes from Kiserian and 45 minutes from Ngong Town.

A wonderful place to relax away from the hussle of the city. We were looking for a place to chill after our honeymoon before returning to real life. It was perfect for that! The views are amazing and the house is unique! It is much further out than we were expecting, but the directions are (URL HIDDEN) just felt like a very long drive, especially the first time out. But 100% worth it! The hosts are INCREDIBLE....not just great hosts, but generally wonderful people who are doing great things for their community. They are very knowledgable and talented people who are very interesting to talk to, yet give plenty of privacy as well.

We loved the view and the space- beautiful lofted ceilings and so spacious (we were two, but it could comfortably fit six). The terrace has an outstanding view of the Rift Valley, perfect for sundowners and dinner. Theimo and the dogs couldn't have been more welcoming. Lovely for a week writing retreat (which is what we were after) close to the city, or for a weekend shindig outside the city. The wind whips through at night, so that the house creaks remind you that you are definitely not in Nairobi anymore (and made the Nairobi girl amongst us convinced someone was about to break in. They weren't). We'll be back and are excited to see what the new building will be like.

Debroah was awesome in communicating and answering all my questions leading up to our trip. We were welcomed by bottles of wine for our birthday celebration which was so thoughtful. The house is just lovely, gorgeous view, beautiful big layout. We were 6 people but never felt like we were in each other's faces. It is one of the easier homes to get to in champagne ridge. Our group did a walk with Deborah and got to see the masai caves. Their pups are super cute and sweet but allergies prevented me from playing with them. I loved that they were self sustainable and powered by solar and rain water. We will definitely be back and hope to stay more than one night. Thanks for everything Deborah!

I could give 5 stars for the view alone! Deborah and Thiemo were very gracious hosts, they were incredibly responsive and helpful to any need. The Castle is certainly a unique place and the private guest area (stand alone HUGE house) is just perfect. The balcony/patio/veranda is expansive with incredible views - we were content to sit here an entire Sunday after a nice morning hike. The land is beautiful and well kept, plenty of nice trails ahead (if you don't regularly hike it would be worth it to have Debs and the dogs show you a few trails, Debs is more than willing to show you the way). Again, the house is very welcoming with an open layout, a lovely kitchen fully equipped and an unparalleled outdoor BBQ/grill. We will certainly be back. We followed step-by-step "route 2" in the directions without a map and made it just fine, departing Nairobi late (5pm) Thiemo reassured us after a quick call they would be willing to find us along the way if we were lost or broken-down. Fortunately, this wasn't required but this gesture went a long way and was the undertone of a lovely weekend. 5 stars, cannot recommend a better quick retreat from NBO.

Originally from Adelaide, Australia I have lived on the African continent since 2003 working in tourism as well as running our own community solar power project Napenda Solar Community. I have spent the better part of my working life outside of Australia working and living all over the World.

Our place in Kenya is our refuge, a place to relax and recharge the batteries. I love to cook so spend my free time in the kitchen working on some new recipe or simply experimenting with various ingredients and textures.

We have a small organic garden which we try and grow some veggies, our area is semi desert so this poses as a challenge during the dry season.

We have 3 dogs; Sally, Turbo and Stella, who are thoroughly spoilt, although they may not agree! They love their daily walks, swimming in the dam and playing soccer (football).

I live with my husband, 3 dogs and our recently adopted kitten Siggi, we love travelling and the dogs love camping!
