107 Dorp­straat This dinky, con­tem­po­rary ho­tel and wine bar offers eight lux­ury rooms; each is in­di­vid­u­ally dec­o­rated and features a queen-size bed, ‘work sta­tion’ and triple-glazed win­dows. There is also a new self-cater­ing fam­ily room in the block be­hind. From R950 pp shar­ing B&B. 107dorp.co.za Rozen­dal If you pre­fer a farm­stay at­mos­phere, re­plete with pot-bel­lied pigs, al­pacas, horses and chick­ens, and don’t mind other guests in close prox­im­ity, this clus­ter of 16 units on an el­e­vated slope is rec­om­mended (and great to take over as a group). Or­der a cheese plat­ter and bub­bly for sun­down – the stoep is a de­light­ful place from which to watch the town lights flicker on. Rozen­dal pro­duces ex­cep­tional vine­gars, and a tast­ing is in­cluded in the price. From R955 pp shar­ing B&B. rozen­dal.co.za

Ma­jeka House This gor­geous bou­tique prop­erty was recog­nised in 2017 for its de­sign ex­cel­lence by Condé Nast Jo­hansens, and is owner-man­aged with great

com­mit­ment and flair. It’s a class act in the heart of the sub­urbs, with su­perb din­ing in its award-win­ning restau­rant. From R1 290 pp shar­ing B&B; ask about the win­ter spe­cials. ma­jeka­house.co.za

Su­gar­bird Manor I’ve men­tioned the su­perla­tive views from the Helshoogte Pass, but the Devon Val­ley offers some pretty awe­some vis­tas too. Su­gar­bird Manor, a four-star guest house on Pro­tea Heights farm, makes the most of them – par­tic­u­larly rooms 4, 5, 8 and 9, and the in­fin­ity pool.

The Home­stead at Olden­burg Vine­yards. At the end of a dirt road in a val­ley off Helshoogte Pass, this lux­u­ri­ously ap­pointed manor house with a moun­tain range in its back­yard must be seen to be be­lieved. It sleeps up to 12 in six bed­rooms, and the rate in­cludes canapés and bub­bly on ar­rival, sun­downer snacks and drinks (in­clud­ing the es­tate’s wine) and break­fast. From R22 300 for eight (two-night min­i­mum stay). old­en­burgvine­yards.com
