South Africa the definitive choice for romantic adventurers

In a recent article by Valerie Summers of Travellady Magazine , South Afican , and especially the winelands (near Cape Town), are described as a definitive choice for romantic adventurers.

She wrote the following:

“Our departure from Hermanus took us through the Cape Winelands, less than an hour’s drive from Cape Town.  We stopped for a sampling of the grape at Boschendal and Stellenbosch vineyards amidst the awe-inspiring scenery. Mountain roads snaked through craggy topped mountains, serene lakes sparkled in the sun and tall grasses swayed in the great expanses of open fields. 

Tucked away in the tranquil vineyards of the Franschhoek Valley, we stopped at the private wine and olive Estate of Domaines des Anges which painted an exquisite backdrop to the secluded La Residence retreat.  The low-keyed exterior did not prepare us for the gracious interior of old-world luxury complete with fine French antiques, sprawling sofas and exquisite Persian carpets.

Individually decorated guest rooms ran the gamut from cozy and charming to huge and opulent….the largest suite featuring not one but two toilets in its oversized bath parlor. A private butler, chef and chauffer with car were available to La Residence guests should they wish to leave this heavenly place.

South Africa the definitive choice for romantic adventurers.”
