We may still be up to our ears in snow, frost and the icy winds of winter here in the northern hemisphere, but way down below the equator in sunny South Africa, the temperatures are rising to a rather hot and sweaty 38 degrees!
Summer has most definitely arrived in the Western Cape, and as our guests lay sunning themselves beside the pool at WedgeView Country House and Spa, a chilled Sauvignon Blanc in one hand, and a great book in the other, I cannot help but feel slightly envious about their South African Adventure.
Wedgeview Country House & Spa is located just outside the picturesque university town of Stellenbosch, on a one-hectare plot of land. Owned and managed by family Bakker along with their magnificent team, this luxury five-star property is surrounded by beautiful gardens, verdant vineyards, breathtaking scenery, and offers the superior service one would expect from such a property.
Ranked #1 B&B/Inn in Stellenbosch on TripAdvisor, this elegant private country residence offers all the amenities one would expect from a five-star hotel, and combines it with authentic South African hospitality, which is second to none (in my humble opinion!).
The rooms are comfortable yet luxurious, the breakfast is hearty yet served in such a way that you savour every bite, the grounds and swimming pool are pristine, the Spa has all the treatments one could possibly wish for, and to top it all off, WedgeView is committed to sustainable and responsible development.
So, while I look outside my window to see snow, rain, and grey skies, I know that our dear guests are having the time of their lives at WedgeView Country House & Spa – and that makes winter a whole lot brighter!
