Our first Gourmet Getaway Swellendam at the end of May was a roaring success! We were so thrilled at the positive energy and feedback that surrounded it. Cannot thank you all enough for the wonderful response!
We’re hoping to make them a monthly occurrence every winter every year, but for now, we have one at the end of July and another at the end of August. Part of the glorious feedback that we received was a great idea for a shuttle service so that guests didn’t have to drink & drive after lunch or dinner. We listened and have included it in the next package.
A reminder that the package includes 2 nights’ accommodation with breakfasts in a Luxury Room, dinner with Chef Jason and wine-pairing with Olivedale at Schoone Oordt; dinner at La Sosta with Chefs Salvatore & Nina and wine-pairing with Arendsig and finally, lunches at Tredici & Grace+Merci. Excellent value and a really lekker vibe. Trust me.
Some of the amazing comments received from our beautiful guests, thank you…
‘I am so glad that we got to be a part of your first ever gourmet getaway. Well done to you and your team for all the hard work and effort. Everywhere we went, the staff were friendly and made a lot of effort to give us great service.’
‘Thank you for a wonderful weekend. We enjoyed every moment and felt thoroughly pampered in our lovely room. Our friends had a great time too and I am sure that the good news will spread.’
‘You must be so pleased on how your first gourmet weekend went. We wish to congratulate you on all the effort and planning that made it such a memorable weekend. The restaurants and accommodation sectors of the Swellendam community surpassed themselves as a collective. Well done to all involved.’
We had the very very lovely Thobi-Rose join us for the weekend all the way from Jo’burg and we couldn’t have been happier with the content she generated. Have a look here. Such a pleasure to welcome her and Lizwe Khumbuza to our country town. We are looking at doing a curated Gourmet Getaway Swellendam with her mid September, so watch this space.
A gentle reminder to book soon for end July, our first Gourmet Getaway Swellendam sold out within a few days of sending our newsletter (and we have a few bookings in place already).
But wait… that’s not all.
Because we absolutely LOVE Sanbona and Joubert-Tradauw (who doesn’t love the quiet and peace and amazing people of The Karoo?), we couldn’t resist another partnership. We’ve put together this fantastic weekend package that also includes The Drostdy and Jan Harmsgat. Take a look.
This fantastic deal is available every weekend for the whole of August and September, including the long weekends, so treat yourselves to a very special ‘take a deep breath’ experience.
