I am definitely not one to go out in winter, let alone travel during the winter but this trip was super romantic. The cold air outside was met by warm fireplaces, indoor heating, warm food and sherry all over town!
On arrival we were greeted and offered a glass of sherry or port which warmed us up instantly. Then we were escorted to our room, the Paulina Suit. It was magnificent! The heat had been turned up before our arrival to make it cosy. The large bed was covered with a feather duvet and faux fur blanket which added to the room's appeal. A large Jacuzzi bath with heated towel rails was what awaited us for the evening.
Our room was a ground floor suit which suited us best. It might not have had the thatch roof but we didn’t have to climb stairs.
Outside our room was an entrance hall which had brochures of surroundings farms and things to do as well as a lounge with a fireplace to sit and read in.
Breakfast was delicious! You could choose from a health, full English, continental breakfast to a regular omelette! My husband and I chose the continental for its croissant and muffin which came out freshly baked every morning!
The Basse Provence is situated right outside of Fraschhoek so you have the privacy of the farm vineyards and mountains but close enough to take a short 2 min drive into town.
I could not fault the service, the room or surroundings and we will definitely be returning...especially for the winter.
ps: I would definitely recommend eating at the restaurant Allora’s. They are a short distance from Basse Provence and have a free shuttle service so should you wish to take advantage of their extensive wine collection, you won’t have to worry about driving back. The food was excellent and it had a fine dining airs about it.
