I was born in Madagascar, and love travelling & discovering new places and meeting new people. I love everything French... the French country side, French films -my all time favourite is "Les Untouchables" ! I am passionate about food, good conviviality, beautiful interiors , the Arts ! I love Cape Town,& (the Garden route), it is cosmopolitan and there is so much beauty and so much to do! I try and replica the comforts of "our homes" in our self catering spaces to make them comfy so you feel welcomed and feel it is your own. I also love sea views. In Cape Town we enjoy shows , hikes up Lions head, surfing in Muizenberg & Blouberg, lingering in Galleries, savouring the beauty of wine farms ,eating in good restaurants & walks on the Mouille Pt promenade.Ask us ,we have local knowledge of all the cool places... My favourite book is the Nightingale & I can't live without my family, friends ,music and dancing .
Contact me if you would like to stay in Knysna at Water's Edge or in Plettenberg bay!
