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…

Highlights of our recent weekend in Stellenbosch

This winter season we spent a weekend away in both Franschhoek and Stellenbosch. I had such fun putting together a recommended weekend in Franschhoek that I wanted to try the same for Stellenbosch! Here are my highlights and recommendations for a fantastic weekend in Stellenbosch! We’re covering what to eat, where to stay and most…

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…

Eating Everything at Hartenberg

Eating Everything at Hartenberg

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…

Lunch at The Tokara Estate

Tokara is perched on top of theĀ Helshoogte Pass outside Stellenbosch and offers visual delights both out the window and on the plates.…

Picnic Partying at Warwick Wine Estate

I really love picnics. I love the easy, fresh, delicious food. I love camping out in the sunshine. And they are even better when there is wine involved! Warwick in Stellenbosch is famous for their picnics and were one of the first farms to introduce a gourmet picnic on their rolling lawns. I have visited…

Delaire Graff for Art and Wine

I live a very curated life. I chase natural light, bright colours and vast landscapes. I am obsessed with dishes on white backgrounds, wine glass held up against a view and large flower arrangements. My “being a grown up” goal for 2016 was to buy my first piece of art. I bought a giant piece…

Bonne Esperance

  I love Cape Town – I truly do, but nothing is better than a quick city escape! We have some amazing getaway options from Stellenbosch to Franschhoek, Elgin and even Hermanus and Langebaan. We recently snuck away to Bonne Esperance for two nights in the sleepy town of Stellenbosch. We spent the weekend walking…
