Meals: Fully self-catering. Plenty of restaurants close by in Knysna. Kilzers Kitchen 'Cook & Look' dining experience every Wednesday (in season), booking essential. Kilzers (outdoor) Kitchen at the Knysna Night Market most Friday evenings.
Directions: From George on N2, turn left up Lloyd Street before first set of traffic lights into Knysna. After about 100m at the T-junction, follow signs for "Guadeloupe Self Catering" all the way to the top of the hill & left down into Roos Bolton Crescent - we are at the end of the cul de sac.
Jenny and Albin are the culinary personalities behind Kilzers Kitchen, the Knysna-based cookery school and occasional pop-up restaurant (which fans of GG and others 'in the know' may have discovered already). Their lovely self-catering apartments above the cookery school are bright and breezy, with crisp, white linen, huge windows and balconies with stunning views over the Knysna Lagoon. These airy, loft-style apartments are a perfect base from which to explore the Garden Route and come furnished with everything you would expect to find in a home-from-home. The kitchens are fully equipped if you want to cook for yourself, but you will probably spend most of your time out and about, packing picnics to munch on forest trails, on the beach, sailing the lagoon, watching the birds, driving or hiking the mountain passes, stopping at farm stalls... you get the idea. If you have the time, why not sign up for a cookery class or two (these can be tailor-made to your group's interests); or better yet, come for a 'vacation education' cookery retreat and spend one or two weeks living and breathing food and cooking, going on visits to local cheese-makers and learning to select and cook the finest local ingredients. At the very least, make sure you stay over on a Wednesday and book yourself a spot at the Kilzer's famous Cook and Look evening and sample Jenny’s fabulous limoncello made from fresh unsprayed lemons stolen from the neighbour’s lemon tree! Yum!
