Recently my wife went for a nice leisurely drive through the Franschhoek Pass. The majestic mountains and beautiful lakes provide, arguably, some of the most spectacular scenery in the Overberg region.
It is a fairly long drive, so one needs a few hours to spare but one comes away truly inspired. Highly recommended for the stressed up townee!
And on a balmy day, such as we experienced, you might see a troop of baboons performing on the side of the road. A nice bonus!
