Franschhoek & The Winelands
Channel your inner Karen Blixen of ‘Out of Africa’ fame at this supremely romantic farmhouse and game reserve in the Ribeek Valley. Just over one hour’s drive from Cape Town, Bartholomeus Klip is set beneath a spectacular mountain range and offers a wealth of activities from fishing to wildlife spotting – what could be more fabulous than zebras grazing in the sunset?
Four double bedrooms are available within the main house along with a separate outside suite boasting a secluded veranda with a sweeping mountain view. The independent Wild Olive House & Cottage is ideal for families with its own swimming pool. Nothing is too much trouble for the twin owners, Leslie and Louise Gillet who run the place with aplomb and innate hospitality. The food is five-star quality using the finest local ingredients and delightful small touches are everywhere. This is a place to treasure and return to again and again.
