For months I have been wanting to get us all to Canettevallei in Stellenbosch!
“There’s a few things I’ve learned in life: always throw salt over your left shoulder, keep rosemary by your garden gate, plant lavender for good luck and fall in love whenever you can” – William Shakespeare
PLAN ONE—We all know the month of June can produce rain! If there is NO rain we will head to Canettevallei.
Canettevallei is a wine and lavender farm that lies tucked away in Stellenboschkloof, a quiet valley situated about 10 km outside Stellenbosch. After travels to France and specifically Provence, they decided in 2005 to plant lavender in front of their home on the farm. Their main products are lavender essential oil andlavender rice, the sweet-smelling dried flowers of the lavender plant. Lavender is at it’s best from May to October – so come and walk amongst the lavender fields OR browse their little shop on site!
PLAN TWO—If there is rain on 27th June we will head straight to Spier and visit their Artisan Studio. Come watch the mosaic artists at work creating masterpieces.
Lunch will be at the Barrique restaurant in their semi-private dining room. Barrique is a family owned restaurant that has been operating on the Vredenheim wine estate for the past 20 years!
A FULL day to while away the winter blues! Why sit alone at home on a cold wintry day?
Come with Time Out and join the friendly people on the coach! Something GREAT to EXPERIENCE.
