This villa is located in a secure complex which also contains what Golf Digest this year described as the most scenic golf course in South Africa. A very modern villa, with light fittings and appliances from the future. The 50 mile drive up to the resort past Pringle Bay is one of the most stunning coastal drives in the world. We repeatedly stopped for photos and the breathtaking view and despite being late the owner was on hand to take me through the house and explain how it worked. There are just so many places within easy distance such as Franchhoek, Stanford, Hermanus and the Hemel en Aarde Valley. This is the Cape at its best. Will go back.”
