We try to go away into our magnificent country areas as often as we can, as the Cape has so much bounty to offer. We stay at really lovely places, but sometimes we go to somewhere so perfect, so beautiful and so peaceful that we never want to leave. Our life is not geared to a pursuit of luxury, but natural beauty and experience are what we love. When we were married, Lynne said she didn’t need a 5 star life, just no camping (she is an ex girl guide and back packed around Europe a lot so camping days are done), but our own bedroom and a bathroom in a clean and neat place would be fine. We love being able to sit outside when we are in the country and not confined to a room and we love observing nature. Last week, we visited Angala, a superb boutique hotel nestled under the beautiful Drakenstein mountains near Franschhoek and, when we arrived, we found one of those places. This place works seamlessly, guests' every wish or whim is catered for, before they think of it. We absolutely loved our stay.
