Perfect isolation

 

OK, so I do carry on about the delights of La Verdure Farm in Franschhoek, about the total feeling of getting away from EVERYTHING that bothers you, to a place that is so special one can return there time after time without ever getting bored.

The only thing missing is you!

There are four cottages on the farm, all self catering so you can watch the sun go down on a perfect day while your barbie does the work. On the other hand, you are near enough to the delights of Franschhoek, which was packed on a recent visit, so you can dip in and out of its top places to go.  I personally love the feeling of isolation, with the wind in the trees on the slopes of the mountain the only reminder that you are on earth.

While there do get to do a tasting of Jonathan Lermer’s Franschhoek Distillery’s award winning treasures, made right there on La Verdure. There is a slivovitz made from plums on the farm, a superb gin made for his wedding to lovely wife Anné, super Rum, and an absinthe which is just the thing to settle any gripe your tummy might make after food. Jonathan is also now making, in collaboration with Huguenot Chocolates, irresistible chocolates featuring his superb spirits. Try not to buy them—I defy you!
