After a soft landing on a grassy field, surrounded by spectacular views, you’ll be whisked away by your hosts to a cool and lush Camphor Forest – the magical setting for your “white tablecloth” picnic. This is the fancy-pants picnic for people who ‘don’t do’ picnics. A table and chairs are set in the shade of an ancient forest, a picnic basket of luxury goodies delivered to you, and magically, the stage is set for a romantic soiree in incredible surroundings.
After lunch, explore the estate… there is something for everyone – an historic homestead, old books, glorious gardens, a breath-taking winery, ancient camphor trees, fine dining, fabulous wines, and child friendly playgrounds. Vergelegen’s gardens are a veritable paradise, a show piece of a century’s worth of work by dedicated gardeners.
