I found this lovely Italian villa in Langebaan of all places when out on a training run. One of the great things about running is that you see so much more of the world around you, so when I finished my run I grabben my camera and went straight out to take this shot.
I still find it a little strange seing such an Italin looking house in the middle of the west-coast fishing village of Langebaan.
Living in the Cape, you are surrounded by beautiful old Cape Dutch houses. This is the main residence at Buitenverwachting in Constantia. Imaging waking up every morning to that wonderful view of the Constantia vineyards?
Of course while you are there, visit the tasting room, and stock up on their wonderful wines. Or stay for a picnic or a meal in their excellent restaurant.
If you are lucky you might even be able to visit the cellar and see the wines quietly maturing in the barrels.
