Sea Point’s BEST Hot Spot – Glitz at the Ritz

The iconic Sea Point skyscraper has been a landmark for years. A tall shimmering structure that represented class and sophistication and boasted a revolving restaurant. Over the years it lost its sparkle but with an incredible team of engineers, architects, designers and a strong bold PR team that Ritz has reopened its name and [...]

Where to Eat, Drink and Sleep in Franschhoek

Holidays, Weekend getaways or mid week stay cations can often be hard to plan especially with us constantly wanting to be on the go. I recently spent a two day trip in the breathtaking Franschhoek Valley. I fall in love with this colonial town about 45 minutes out of Cape Town each time I can [...]

Keep calm and Curry on – Marigold Restaurant

In the heart of Franschhoek town centre is a new HOT spot that is the reason why culture and old world flare pumps through the very veins of the Franschhoek Valley and I am pretty sure it has to do with the heat that pumps through Head Chef Vanie Padayachee's kitchen doors. The incredibly talented seasoned [...]

Bosman Family Cellar

A sunny afternoon across the rolling hills of Wellington, about 15 minutes out of the town centre is the gorgeous family vineyard of the Bosman Cellar. An afternoon of fine wine, delicious food and fun company awaited us as we enjoyed the festivities of the afternoon. Here is a look at this leisurely weekend in [...]

Living the Grand Life – Grande Provence

Grande Provence is a heritage wine estate located in the gorgeous Franschhoek Valley. Surrounded by rolling mountains, it is on the Franschhoek Tram wine route and the perfect way to see an estate like this. A humble sign at the entrance on the main street does not prepare you for the incredible beauty that this [...]

No whining at Van Loveren

Van Loveren is a name that slips off most people’s tongues when in conversation about well known wine farms in the region. When there is a festival in the Robertson area Van Loveren is always packed. This is why I could not pass up the opportunity to visit the estate and put a location to the [...]

la pizza perfetta a Sofia’s

Pizza is probably the meal that unites people the most. Sports games, parents bribing kids by the simple statement of “we will get pizza for dinner OK,” even the popular phrase “pizza party everyyyday” is one that so many people recognize today.
