Three Romantic Escapes

Want to escape on a romantic getaway, but not sure where to go? In HL's May 2015 Travel Issue we featured 101 Dream Escapes you won't want to miss out on. Start planning a romantic getaway you'll never forget. Here are three beautiful places featured in HL‘s Travel Issue, perfect for a weekend away for two:

1. Farm 215 Nature Retreat, Fynbos Suites

You’ll feel blissfully immersed in nature when hiding out in these stylish modern lodgings set unobtrusively amid the wildly beautiful Cape Agulhas plains. Designed to sit lightly on the earth, the 3 suites are completely off the grid and an eco-minded approach underpins just about every aspect of this unique getaway. A bonus is having neighbouring Lomond wine estate offering tasting just metres away. Each suite sleeps 2. 219

2. Bloomestate

With its quaint restaurants and picturesque scenery, Swellendam is a gem of a town and this special spot makes a weekend break here all the better. When not browsing magazines in the spacious lounge building, swimming in the heated salt water pool or being pampered in the spa, you might simply enjoy relaxing in your fashionably appointed room. Our pick is the exclusive Red Cloud Room, which sleeps 2. 319

3. Karoo View Cottages

Enjoy the best of both worlds at these Prince Albert cottages, set close enough to the village to get a feel of its colourful life, yet sufficiently far removed for a peaceful break from it all. Pick fresh produce from the veggie tunnel for dinner and settle on the stoep to take in the tranquil surrounds. Sleeps 2. 416 See more romantic getaways in HL‘s May 2015 Travel issue.
