Awesome weekend away spot in the winelands







Alluvia wine (www.alluvia.co.za) estate in the Banhoek valley just outside of Stellenbosch (en route to Franschhoek) offers awesome self-catering guest houses complete with an incredible view – said to be the most photographed vineyard in Africa – dam for fishing, a driving range, a swimming pool and wine tasting of course.

We stayed in a three-bedroom house called Tukulu. Comfortable for two couple and two kids, or three couples or friends - you name it. There is DSTV, a fireplace, all the kitchen equipment needed, a braai and a great outside table overlooking the vineyards.

The rates per night in summer are R2800 excluding breakfast / R3100 including - breakfast Sleeps max 6. If the cost is divided between 6, it's less then R500 per person per night - making it really worth while.
