Franschhoek Swings into Spring Media Day

On 2 and 3 August 2018 Franschhoek Wine Valley hosted a few influencers in Franschhoek to showcase what’s new and happening this Spring! The group experienced the Sculpture Walk at La Motte, had lunch at the new Le Petit Manoir, visited the new tasting room at Paserene Wine Estate, enjoyed sundowners at Haut Espoir and finished off a busy day with dinner at the new Beleef restaurant in the village. They stayed at La Petite Dauphine for the night. The next day their senses were taken to new heights with a visit to the new Kumanov purfumery, followed by a game drive and wine tasting at Chamonix Estate. Their visit ended on a high note with lunch at La Petite Colombe. Read more about our influencers’ experiences below:

Swing into Spring in Franschhoek Part 1 – by One Stiletto at a time

Our day started with an informative Fleurs de La Motte / Sculpture Walk lead by Museum Curator, Eliz-Marié Schoonbee. The sculptures are truly breathtaking with the largest one being the elegant Wine Bearer, standing four metres tall and weighing 560 kilograms who welcomes one to the estate at the entrance. The smaller sculptures dotted around the estate and in the museum are all as entrancing.

Swing into Spring in Franschhoek Part 2by One Stiletto at a time

As dusk was falling, we headed to our suites at La Petite Dauphine. The chill was gently biting the air so to walk into a cosy cottage with views of the mountains gently coloured with the pink from the fading sun was exactly what we needed. It was time to charge our phones and devices and recharge under a warming shower. P.S La Petite Dauphine has L’Occitane amenities.

Fall in love with FranschhoekBy The Rabbit Haus

I’ve received dozens of messages from friends asking for travel advice. Everyone wants that first-hand recommendation on places to stay and things to do in certain towns. I’m exactly the same, which is how I’ve discovered so many incredible places. I’m lucky that both Francois and I work in tourism and love traveling, so we often nip away for mini breaks and excursions around Cape Town.

Put La Petite Colombe on your Fine Dining Bucket List – by 9 Lives.co.za

You don’t eat at La Petite Colombe. You sit back and experience all the ways food can be transformed, manipulated and celebrated. The sister restaurant of the award-winning La Colombe in Constantia, Cape Town, opened its doors late last year and since then they’ve been doing a fine job at wooing every foodie who walks through their doors. It’s really no surprise that they were awarded the Eat Out New Restaurant of the Year in 2017.
