If warm hosting, gourmet food and eye-watering natural beauty in the heart of the winelands doesn’t sound like your sort of thing then turn away now, because Angala Boutique Hotel is all of these things. Aubrey, ever the attentive host (and a connoisseur on local wineries), came out to greet me with great warmth.…

… Now you don’t have to so much as turn your head to see fabulous views over the vineyards, farmland and the dam that so immaculately mirrors the high Simonsberg Mountains. Local wooden carvings and Tisha's words of inspiration hide amongst the indigenous garden where you will also find the eco-pool that uses aquatic plants to filter the water. Peter and Tisha Cunliffe, the owners, have recently completely redesigned Angala in modern sophisticated French country style: restored French oak, natural fabrics, scatter cushions placed just so and delicate shades of grey. Much is new including the huge covered terraces outside the restaurant and the enlarged and upgraded luxury suites with their outdoor showers. Half an hour later the new executive chef was conjuring up the gourmet creations that are one of Angala’s major draw cards – in fact, guests generally eschew Franschhoek’s offerings in favour of their local, often organic, always home-made culinary compositions with fresh ingredients either home-grown or locally sourced. The best thing? You can spend the day hiking, touring, wine-tasting, or perhaps just drinking up the peace and a local vintage by the eco-pool... and not have to get in the car to find a great meal at the end of it all.
