One lucky reader stands the chance of winning a night’s stay for two at this boutique escape in the majestic Devon Valley in Stellenbosch.
Like a scene straight out of Under The Tuscan Sky, Sugarbird Manor perches atop a vineyard-covered hill, offering exquisite views of Devon Valley – if it wasn’t for the Helderberg, Simonsberg and Jonkershoek Mountains looming in the distance, you’d be forgiven for thinking you were in the heart of rural Italy.
Sugarbird Manor’s postcard-perfect location on a 20-hectare flower and grape farm is undoubtedly its drawcard, but its four self-catering cottages and beautiful guesthouse are not
without their own unique charm.
The cottages each have their own fully equipped kitchen, a lounge-dining area and an outdoor patio (as well as complimentary wi-fi, air-conditioning and DStv). Inside, pared-down furnishings, contemporary South African art and lashings of industrial-chic finishes, make stays here that much sweeter, while the shared cottage-only pool offers unfathomably beautiful views.
The large garden, swimming pool and plethora of walking paths on the estate mean you don’t actually have to leave, but should you wish to broaden your horizons, there are hiking trails and wine farms aplenty on your doorstep.
If this sounds like your dream getaway, then enter our competition below to experience it firsthand (including a visit from Phil, the resident pheasant, who knocks at your door every evening to bid you goodnight).
In addition, the lucky winner and their plus one will be treated to a bottle of award-winning Botanica Chenin Blanc (created by American owner Virginia Povall, which recently won five stars in the Platter’s Guide for the sixth consecutive year), and a heavenly 30-minute massage.
A farm fantasy come true.
