Marie Claire (South Africa) - - SOCIAL REPORT -

The top Lenvy-in­duc­ing hol­i­day is a demon­stra­tion of your so­cial skills and style. It’s uid, in­volves end­less turnover of guests, long, self-catered lunches and din­ners and pic­turesque sur­round­ings. You score envy points for 1) how many peo­ple pass through, 2) the mix of gen­er­a­tions, in­clud­ing glam­orous oc­ca­sional vis­i­tors, 3) know­ing the area/com­mu­nity ties, 4) in­ven­tive cook­ing, and 5) some kind of ad­ven­ture. Hol­i­day Envy is a bit like House Envy; in the end, what counts is re­source­ful­ness and air. The fact that your friends found this bar­gain villa and the clean­est beach and the best sh mar­ket, and all their chil­dren’s friends came, and they got in­volved in the lo­cal vil­lage tal­ent con­test, and didn’t inch at cater­ing for 20 – th­ese are the facts that keep you awake at night when you’re do­ing three nights, just the four of you, in Durbs.
