My husband and I spent three wonderful days at the Alba House in Paarl in November 2012. Initially, we planned only to stay for 2 days but were fortunately able to extend our stay to 3 nights. Ivana and John are great hosts who run a wonderful B&B. We stayed in the Superior Double Room which has a stunning view of the mountains and is lovely decorated. The breakfasts which Ivana prepared where really delicious and included everything you want to have for a great start into the day. John and Ivana recommended different trips within the area e.g. to visit the Paarl Mountain or other places in the Winelands which we really enjoyed. Paarl was the perfect point to start these day trips and even Cape Town is just a 40 minutes drive. Next time, we come back to South Africa, we definitely come back to stay again at the Alba House. Thanks for the lovely time; it has been a great part of our honeymoon.
