Toomuchloveliness: De Vrije

My New Favourite Burger at De Vrije in Stellenbosch

A few weekends ago we were out in Stellenbosch. We were um’ing and ah’ing between wine tasting, grabbing lunch or heading to Majeka House for an afternoon nap. I was voting for nap – but we were hungry! Luckily Jono remembered we hadn’t yet visited De Vrije, Bertus Basson’s new burger spot in the heart of…

Toomuchloveliness: Dylan Lewis Sculpture Garden

Dylan Lewis Sculpture Garden in Stellenbosch

This post is a bit of a moral dilemma for me. I started this blog to share all the good things. Buuut… if I share this… you’re all going to crash my new favourite spot. I have decided to put your needs above mine and share my hidden gem of the year. On a really…

Toomuchloveliness: Makaron at Majeka House

Tasting the Spring Menu at Makaron

I am a long standing fan of both Majeka House and Makaron their incredible restaurant. Majeka House is my number one recommendation for a splurge romantic weekend away.

Lanzerac Hotel and Spa: A luxury Stellenbosch Escape

Friends of mine had been raving about the recently reopened Lanzerac Hotel and Spa. Lanzerac has been closed for the last little while for renovations due to a fire which unfortunately destroyed large parts of the hotel. They are now open again and are better than ever! Lanzerac is a serious luxury choice in the…

Mushroom Foraging at Delheim

Mushroom Foraging at Delheim on a winter day

Foraging for my own mushrooms has been on my bucket list for the longest time. I love the idea of walking through the forest looking for mushrooms. And I especially love the idea of cooking delicious things with these wild mushrooms. But I have always been deathly scared of poisoning myself. Knowing my luck I…

Toomuchloveliness: Majeka House

Majeka House: Luxury Sleepovers in Stellenbosch

Majeka House is my favourite hotel in Stellenbosch. You would think with them being in the winelands they’d be on a lavish wine farm with rolling grounds. Majeka House is actually tucked away in the sleepy suburbs of Stellenbosch. The grounds are beautiful with giant cactus and bright blue furniture! I love the social areas…

Spier, Stellenbosch, Winelands

A Night Away with Spier in Stellenbosch

I spend as much time as possible in beautiful Stellenbosch. It is always a highlight to indulge in a night away in the Winelands. We recently enjoyed an night over at Spier where we were treated like royalty. We had a wonderful experience staying with them and below is our experience and a few of…

Our first trip out to the winelands for 2017 was Hartenberg Wine Estate and they have set a fantastic tone for the year of adventuring to come! Hartenberg is known for their picnics, their shiraz and their beautiful gardens. I have been to a picnic at Hartenberg before and really enjoyed the experience. This time…
