Situated in a fertile valley between two mountains, the picturesque village of Franschhoek bills itself as a culinary heaven, with renowned wine estates dotting its surroundings.
Venture out of the city with trips to Honingklip Brewery & Restaurant (in Botrivier), Shark Diving (in Gansbaai) and Hermanus (Grotto Beach & Dolphin & Whale Watching). Dedicate the 9th (Fri) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. Next up on the itinerary: take a memorable drive along Franschhoek Pass, pause for some photo ops at The Huguenot Memorial Monument, contemplate the long history of Boschendal Wine Estate, and do a tasting at La Motte Wine Estate.
