Wine, wine and more wine! But as I quickly discovered, Grande Provence is not just the ideal wine-lovers getaway. Nestled amongst 47-acres of lush vines in the heart of the magnificent Franschoek valley, it's for anyone who appreciates fine living. Steeped in history, this destination offers the finest in modern conveniences, technology and luxury accommodation. The magnificent Cape Dutch architecture, 300-year old oak trees and manicured gardens combine to create a truly sophisticated backdrop.
And who wouldn't fall in love with the wonderful 18th century style Manor House overlooking it all, or the Owner's Cottage comprising five stunningly designed bedrooms, including a Honeymoon Suite, a spacious lounge, kitchen and conservatory. As for my favourite pastimes, eating and drinking, well, the cuisine is predictably excellent, and of-course you get the best in award-winning wines. This is the high life after all, and I for one can definitely get used to it!
