Wonderful stay of 7 nights in late October. Felt like I was staying in a replica of Versailles - so luxerious and beautiful with many flowers. Food was very good too. Staff was wonderful. Only thing not perfect was that the internet was intermittent. Highy recommend.

We started our day with a lovely breakfast at our villa, L'ermitage, and left around 9:30 for Capetown. It was rather cloudy and misty when we left and unfortunately Table Mountain was covered by its "table cloth". So we passed on it for now (will try to go up when it is clear). In Capetown, we toured Bo Kaap with its colourful houses and walked …
