Situated in the Constantia Winelands, this bucolic escape is on a working wine estate with space aplenty for kids to roam, three excellent eateries (from relaxed to sophisticated) and a blissful spa.
The kind of destination where city kids can run free, visit the stables and throw pebbles in the farm dam, Constantia Uitsig is rustic, yet it oozes sophistication. Accommodation is in plush country cottages (16 in total) and, for families, the family suite with two bedrooms, a kitchenette and a cosy lounge is ideal. This is akin to a five-star farm where you don’t have to lift a finger.
For You -
With gardens to explore, dining to be had (do try La Colobe for fine French rustic cuisine and Constantia Uitsig for family-friendly lazy lunches) and spectacular spa spoils to be enjoyed, you’ll be loathed to leave the property.
For Them +
After visiting the stables and running the estate flat, there’s a pool to quickly cool off in. Forest walks are a two-minute drive away and activities like horse-riding and quad biking can easily be arranged by the concierge.
