Situated in a secluded hamlet on the wild and beautiful Cape south coast about an hour from Cape Town, our character house, set in the indigenous 'fynbos' is the perfect romantic retreat.
FIRE: Pringle Bay can be windy. Be careful when having a 'braai' / barbeque. Bring your own firewood.
BABOONS: You need to be aware that there are baboons in the area and so don't leave fruit etc visible. Also, ensure that doors and windows are closed when you leave for the beach or for a walk.
FRENCH DRAIN : No foreign object. Only toilet paper.
COFFEE GRANULES: Please dispose of coffee granules in the garden and not down the drain.
WATER: Please use sparingly as we are in the middle of a drought
GARBAGE: There is no garbage removal and so you'll need to take it with you and drop off at the recycling depot on your way home and out of Pringle Bay.
SMOKING : Please don't smoke in the house.

I'd love to share either one of our three special places with you. Our hideaway in a wine village in Burgundy, or our love nest in Pringle Bay or our home in leafy Newlands.
Our home in Newlands is ideal for two couples or a small family who want to spend the festive season in Cape Town. It is a cool, airy house and a great retreat after a hot day on the beach or mountain. It is central and within easy, safe walking distance of local neighbourhood restaurants, delis, etc
The Love Nest in Pringle Bay is perfect for nature lovers who want to be near the beach and mountains but still close to village shops and local restaurants.
Our bolthole in Burgundy is ideal for people who like cycling off to market in search of fresh local produce, cooking beautiful meals and pairing them with the best wines in the world!
I have had a love affair with France since high school. My appreciation of Burgundy's fine wines came later...! I (with my husband and daughter) live in Cape Town and spend part of the year in France. What we love about our village and surrounds is that nothing seems to have changed for 500 years and you get the impression that nothing will, at least for the next 100 years!
My husband is a brilliant 'bricoleur' (handyman) and has lovingly restored our house.
We love the slow lifestyle, the cuisine, the friendly locals. Being in Burgundy brings us back in touch with the simple pleasures in life. That being said, the bright lights and buzz of Lyon or Paris are a short train ride away
