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…

Stellenbosch University Botanical Gardens

I recently escaped to Stellenbosch for a weekend which is one of my favourite things to do. I normally find somewhere lovely and hidden away. This time we stayed at Bonne Esperance, which sounds like the name of a wine farm, but its actually a little Bed and Breakfast and Self Catering spot bang in…

The Full Vergenoegd Experience

This is going to be one of those names my mom will not be able to pronounce. My mom is straight out of Ireland and comes with a funny accent. Say Vergelegen in your most British accent and it sounds like an old Irish surname. It would be ver-gel-e-gen in case you’re looking for a…

Wedgeview Country House and Spa

After plenty of #SeeStellenboschValley adventuring we needed to kick up our heels and have a little rest and relaxation! I cannot think of a more perfect place than Wedgeview! Arriving at Wedgeview was like taking a deep breath! Goodness, but it was beautiful! Wedgeview was the perfect place for a time out! Even better we…

#SeeStellenboschValley and Where to Taste Along the Way

If you’ve been following along with my recent winelands adventures you will know all about our #DiscoverHelderberg trip! We did some amazing wine tastings, great food and wine pairings at Longridge, a five star lunch at Waterkloof and a gorgeous dinner and sleepover at 96 Winery Road! I thought all of this was too good…

Getting to know Webersburg

I am incredibly lucky most of the time. I get to have a normal life with this blog on the side for extra excitement. I get to write monologues about great risotto, paragraphs on pizza and get ridiculously excited about amazing wines. I get to do that whenever I want. But then over and above…

Dinner and a Sleep Over at 96 Winery Road

Again another #DiscoverHelderberg gem which I had tried at Taste of Cape Town and longed to visit! Their duck and cherry pie at Taste of Cape Town was sublime so at least I knew my main course before I even got there! Other gems include lunch at the ever beautiful Waterkloof, exciting wine tastings all…

#DiscoverHelderberg and Where to Taste Wine

I had the pleasure of joining a group of happy souls of the blogging, tweeting and instagraming variety for a two day #DiscoverHelderberg experience! And goodness did we discover! The Helderberg is one of five regions in Stellenbosch which I have until now spent very little time. And now I’m gunning for expert status! We…

Winter Special with Kleine Zalze Lodges and Terroir

On a beautiful winter’s day we headed out to Kleine Zalze Estate! They have an amazing winter special running which includes one night stay in their standard rooms with breakfast, a “Winter Plate” at Terroir with a glass of Kleine Zalze wine, a complimentary wine tasting and a bottle of wine on arrival all for…

An Escape to Majeka House

We recently headed out into the suburbs of Stellenbosch for a grand sleepover at Majeka House. We packed big bags full of books and laptops and swimming costumes. Swimming costumes in June? Most definitely at the five star Majeka House! The books came out within minutes of discovering our private pool and sun loungers and…
