Just one hour from Cape Town a quite different South Africa awaits, one where quaint white cottages are dotted among vineyards and mountains and where fine dining and, of course, fine vintages come to the fore. The nearby towns and villages of Paarl, Stellenbosch and Franschhoek are full of architectural delights, quaint galleries and enticing bistros. Of course, the Chardonnays, Sauvignon Blancs and Pinot Noirs will also add a little extra something to your stay!
