Overview and History
In 2004 Derk Blaisse and Charlotte Daneel purchased Skilderkrans and Coetzeesfontein which boasted an old, partly stone, partly brick ruin which provided the resident sheep an excellent shelter. To begin with, they decided to renovate it as a get away.
The magic of Sneeuberg has been passionately crafted by owner and interior decorator Charlotte Daneel. Charlotte Daneel, who with her partner Derk Blaisse, has fulfilled a yearning to return to the places she knew and loved as a child.
In 2012 Sneeuberg Nature Reserve and seven neighboring landowners created the Compassberg Protected Environment, comprising about 42 000 hectare, under the auspices of the Eastern Cape Parks and Tourism Agency's Stewardship Program.
