Here in South Africa we are truly spoilt when it comes to accommodation choices and holiday getaways. The calls from Europe and abroad always tempt us and yet we have so much right here on our doorstep. One of the fabulous places that we stayed at during our recent vacation was Augusta de Mist in Swellendam.
We arrived on a sweltering day and were greeted with chilled iced tea and an oasis of green. The garden at Augusta de Mist is really beyond gorgeous… overgrown and lush with plenty of secret nooks for reading and reflecting. And of course what initially attracted me was their eclectic and creative interiors.
Michel and Henk, the owners of this lovely establishment really have managed to tick all of the boxes… genuine hospitality, excellent service, attention to detail, outstanding food, luxury and comfort. And no this post is not sponsored! We had a fantastic stay and I would definitely recommend this country hideaway anytime. Hopefully my photos will convince you too…
