Tranquil beauty - we enjoyed horseback riding, 4x4 tour, caves, whale watching, the spa and of course the food. There were other activities offered but our kids loved the horses.

Grootbos, the Cape's best kept secret. Amazing for walking, running, mountain biking, and horse riding as often as you want.

The villas are gorgeous, and little touches like lit fires upon one's return from dinner, and hot water bottles in bed made it extra special.

Our villa was really great, a sea view straight out from the bed, a beautiful fireplace and one of the best bathrooms I've ever seen!
