With acres of gardens and spectacular views across the Constantia Valley, this idyllic getaway makes the world beyond disappear. Built within the former winery and manor house of an 18th-century wine estate, large and elegant rooms are furnished in either a grand English-country or more pared-down, contemporary look. Rooms on the Hohenhort side are gorgeous, with four-poster beds, fine draperies, reproduction antiques, and (upstairs) amazing views across the valley from
private decks. Numerous exquisitely outfitted public areas from a library to nooks and crannies across the stunning garden mean you're never short on private places to disappear. Two fantastic on-site restaurants (the upscale Greenhouse, and the more casual Conservatory) and excellent, gracious service complete the picture.
