Getaway (South Africa) - - ESCAPE NEIGHBOURHOOD -

‘If you’re look­ing for lo­cal de­sign, the Mon­te­bello Cen­tre has it all, from the Mo­galak­wena Craft Art shop and a won­der­ful nurs­ery run by a mother and daugh­ter to ceram­ics and art stu­dios. It’s al­ways a treat to visit jew­ellery-maker Beloved Bead­works and see what Anna and her team are up to. The Gar­dener’s Cot­tage also serves de­li­cious scones, so def­i­nitely stay for tea.’ The prop­erty dates back to 1764, with the homestead and sta­bles built in the 19th cen­tury. Own­ers in­cluded one of the first beer brew­ers in the Cape, and Ce­cil Michaelis, the ‘fa­ther’ of the SA ceram­ics in­dus­try. To­day it has more than 20 stu­dios and work­shops, a forge, his­toric green­house and an or­ganic deli. mon­te­bello.co.za
