PROVISIONAL TOUR INFORMATION:
A new Special Events venue in the Boland only one hour’s drive from Cape Town! Many people dream of escaping from the city to experience the good life in the countryside. Jaco Brand, owner of Picardi Place, was fortunate enough to make this dream a reality. In the few years that he has enjoyed the refreshing
authenticity that living close to the earth brings, he has learned to appreciate the challenges and triumphs each passing season brings – growing in gratitude every day. It is this gratitude that compels Jaco to share with visitors a variety of experiences displaying hospitality that reflects the boundlessness of the country surroundings.
Tuesday 4th February
We leave the city mid-morning and enjoy a leisurely drive up through the Huguenot Tunnel stopping at
interesting places to ‘gather’ – Settle in at Picardi Place and enjoy dinner in-house tonight, getting to know Jaco! (Dinner included / lunch own account)
Wednesday 5th February
After breakfast – We will share a “Wanna-Be-Italiano” cookery experience with Jaco. This is a FUN
morning that even the ‘non-cooker’ will enjoy – experience their perma-culture garden where you will pick vegetables and herbs and get involved in a small way to put our lunch together! Lunch will be under their big-’ol-tree with views to take your breath away. In the afternoon we will explore the Worcester area – perhaps even visiting their casino for a while! (Italiano Course Dinner included / lunch own account)
Thursday 6th February
After breakfast we will head to Du Doorns where in February their fabulous grapes are available. We will visit the Villion Farms Grand View packing shed and enjoy a mid-morning tasting of their export table grapes. After lunch at the Veldskoen Farm Stall (a tranquil oasis where you can shop to your hearts-content!) we will explore the Du Doorns valley! Heading back to Picardi Place in the late afternoon we will, once again, enjoy dinner in the area. (Grape tasting /Dinner included / lunch own account).
Friday 7th February
After breakfast we head back to Cape Town but this time we will not go through the tunnel, preferring to enjoy the views of the spectacular mountain pass before we head down to Franschhoek for lunch! Enjoy a ride on the Franschhoek Tram, giving you a different perspective of Franschhoek! (Franschhoek Tram included / lunch own account)
Planning is underway and we will shortly provide a comprehensive, priced information brochure.
