What more could one want from a trip planned away with the family than their very own home away from home. Personal, exclusive, decadent and where to be spoilt is most definitely guaranteed, small groups of travellers and friends are tending more and more towards the privacy and comfort of this luxurious option when on holiday in South Africa.
With sole use of villas and homesteads offered around nearly every location in the country, one could become seriously accustomed to this fine way of living that is so different to the traditional hotel experience.
Whether on safari on a remote hilltop location, or on the cliff side of a beautiful coastal region or even within the heart of the Cape wine lands, this highly personalised experience is just a really superb way to enjoy the diversity of everything that is on offer!
Decorated by some of the country’s top interior designers, these beautiful private villas and homes are fully kitted out with all of the lavish comforts that you can expect to find in a five star hotel and their layers of shapes, colours and textures long to pamper your senses and your soul.
Of course they come complete with a chef and butler in addition to other members that make up the excellent teams of staff. A private vehicle and guide is at your disposal if staying at a private home when on safari. Child minders who are mothers themselves are on standby to watch over your little ones if required.
While some have the luxury of travelling as and when they would like, it is important that they remain connected as business requires and often dictates in today’s modern world. A private office and library is there to ensure your peace of mind where you can choose to do as little or as much as you would like to.
Infinity pools are a standard feature and sacred spaces designed for outdoor dining experiences have been created for added variety. Some boast their very own wine cellars for guests to personally make a selection on the day according to what they feel like. Guests can generally feel free to discuss and interact with the chef each day as to what they would like and what their preferences are.
This level of exclusivity and privacy can be the catalyst for a restorative and incredibly special experience for families and friends. It is highly recommended as one of the top experiences that one can have in South Africa.
