When the only romance you’re receiving is the kiss of the spoon that feeds you muesli and yoghurt every morning, then it’s probably safe to assume that you need to embark on a romantic getaway. Reignite the flame with today’s Groupon: one night for two people, including breakfast for R450 at Oak Village Bed & Breakfast.
Set in the historical town centre of Stellenbosch, Oak Village Bed & Breakfast is an intimate and cosy guesthouse that exudes the charm of a nineteenth century butler. Each room, named after well-known South African wine variants such as Chenin Blanc and Pinotage, boasts an en suite bathroom, crisp linens, air conditioning and unique décor. Tea and coffee facilities are available for those who tend to exhibit owl-like behaviour from dusk ‘till dawn, or those who just have insatiable cravings for the esteemed elixirs. Though, with a bed cupping you into a gentle slumber, a warm and cosy house your home and the thought of a delicious breakfast awaiting you, a sound sleep will come sooner than the morning.
After rest in a comfy bed, that breakfast-feast you’ve been looking forward to will not at all disappoint. Dining in the area by the pool or the sunny dining room, your belly will send up thankful belches of appreciation while your eyes scout little Stellenbosch nuances in the décor. Filled from a breakfast for champions, you can embark on one of the many activities that the quaint town has to offer; seek out hiking trails, get loved up with a romantic horse-ride or decide how to hold hands while touring the Cape Winelands. With the bed, the breakfast and the host of activities the little town has to offer, you’re bound to leave with tummy full of butterflies and a flame reignited. If not for your partner, then for the Oak Village Bed & Breakfast and the charming, seemingly undisturbed town of Stellenbosch.
