After 2 weeks on Safari Illyria was true culture shock. It was like stepping back in time. Stepping back to a time of elegance and refinement. From the moment we arrived till the moment we left we were treated like welcome guests. Our Salome suite was beautiful and our balcony overlooked the glorious portico and lawn. The whole house was full of beautiful crystal and silver. Our dinner was perfect. We were surprised by a special piano concert in the music room before dinner. How very special.
I had read about our wonderful hostess Marietjie but was still unprepared by her very special attention. Regrettably we were only here one night but even so felt like family.
I recommend this wonderful home if you want to be treated like royalty and family.
