self catering

India House

i was lucky enough to spend an evening at India House (so named for the bright blue old wooden door brought from Gujarat, India), a self-catering cottage in the Bastiaanskloof at the bottom of the Bainskloof Pass, less than 2 hours from Cape Town. the setting is so amazing that the beautiful decor and luxury finishes of the house itself are kind of just a bonus. not that anyone would complain about that swimming pool or lounging around on huge comfortable couches all day long. just beware of the baboons.

you can see more pics of the house and its lovely interior here. all photos by me.

friends of mine are going to die laaitjie in robertson for a weekend away.

Die Laaitjie is so called as it nestles in the smallest and last of the Dassieshoek valleys in the Langeberg mountains. Despite being so completely remote, the farm is only 7 kilometres from the centre of Robertson. The farm is situated alone in a bowl made by the surrounding mountains. 25 Ha of the farm consists of peach, pear and apricot trees, all of which fill the valley with colourful blossoms during the spring months. The mountains themselves are criss-crossed with hiking, walking and horse-riding trails suitable for all levels of expertise. Enjoy a gentle stroll to the river before breakfast, or spend a whole day exploring the ravines.
