Boschendal
Winelands

For a taste of tranquil farm living, head to this picturesque wine estate outside Franschoek, one hour’s drive from Cape Town. Founded in 1685, Boschendal is one of the oldest farms in the country and offers both comfort and stylish simplicity. The accommodation ranges from the historic Herbert Baker (the Lutyens of South Africa) designed Rhodes Cottage (complete with eco-friendly pool) to beautifully renovated farm labourer cottages, sprawled across a South African national heritage site. Note that to reach some of the cottages you will require own transport.

Go fruit picking in season and savour the unique atmosphere along the trails. This is true rural living and we love the authentic atmosphere. Take in the imposing outline of the Simonsberg Mountain and go swimming in the dams – natural luxury at its best.  Seasonal vineyard tours, horse riding and wine tastings are all must-do experiences while staying here. Finish the day with pampering at the Farm Spa. 

Dining options embrace the farms organic ethos; eat at the Werf Restaurant, Farm Shop & Deli, or Le Pique Nique. Alternatively, have meal baskets brought to your cottage or buy some fresh produce at the deli. A great option for families or couples seeking a private retreat.

You either get the point of Africa or you don’t. What draws me backyear after year is that it is like the world with the lid off.

We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
