If you are not instantly smitten by Daniëlskraal, I suggest you put down this book immediately, as it's probably not your cup of tea. As you turn off the R62 into the pretty little town of Calitzdorp, you may wonder where on earth you're going as you drive straight out the other side again. Even more so when you reach the romantically named 'Waterworks dirt road' (ask Sally who named it that!). But romantic it is, and smitten you will be once you reach the Daniel's Kraal valley. The luxurious farmhouse, which can be taken by the room on a B&B basis or as a whole house self-catering, was built in 1836 and lies on a long-since abandoned ox wagon trade route and to this day is a welcome sight for the sore eyes of weary travellers. Irresistible sofas strewn with plump, feather-filled cushions on the deep stone 'stoep', overlook lush green lawns and roses, a darkly inviting pool flanked by parasols and sun-loungers, vineyards stretching lazily toward the mountains as cheeky chickens dig up Sally's herb garden in the dappled shade. You'll struggle to tear yourself away, but try hard because there are hikes and wildlife and port tastings a-plenty to be discovered. Sally and Chris are the perfect hosts and live just up the driveway if you need anything. There is also the most adorable little pink cottage on the farm which is just the right size for two adults.
