Escape to Die Laaitjie for a little piece of heaven

The perfect place for a weekend of peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of city living. Only 2 hours drive from Cape Town, Die Laaitjie is set between the mountains in a valley with a river flowing through it, gorgeous views in all directions, country living and very limited cellphone reception (which is just great!).


Stormsvlei, be transported back to the 1700’s

Old world charm at its best, Stormsvlei Riverside Cottages are located in the Overberg on the banks of the Sonderend River, on a working dairy farm. This historic farm is 20km from Riviersonderend, just off theΒ N2 on the R317 leading to Bonnievale and Robertson.

Our visit to the elegant yet rustic Hawksmoor House

A quick 25 minutes drive from Cape Town, Hawksmoor House is the perfect couples retreat. We checked in here on a Thursday afternoon for a night of relaxation, peace and quiet and that’s exactly what we got. Hawksmoor House is part of the Lion Roars hotel group and is located on a magnificent wine farm near Stellenbosch in the Cape Winelands.
