Being from Tuscany, this was a trip back in time for me as I have rarely been back since arriving in SA 40 (gulp!) years ago. When it dawned on me that my 2nd wedding annisersary was coming up...I searched and found this place on the net. Less then an hour away from home it sounded perfect, so I booked the Honeymoon Suite. What a beautiful place it turned out to be, with gorgeous attention to every detail. The biggest surprise, other than the sparkling wine on ice in the suite, fresh fruit, a romantic dinner for two in the uppermost terrace had to be the standard of the food...absolutely top class!
