Tea in Paarl

Earlier this week I was treated to a day out in Paarl with my dear friend Candy. I was in awe of the lovely old buildings with even the residential areas maintaining the charm of this historical area. Visitors to Paarl can clearly see the French and Dutch elements in the architecture left over from the settlers. We had tea at a pretty hotel in town, Pontac Manor and I loved taking in the gardens and little touches in the furnishing which made it feel as if we were dining during a simpler time. I was so excited to find a secret garden type door to share with everyone... If you get a chance I highly recommend a trip. Its about an hour outside Cape Town but the drive is picturesque towards the end. Next time, I'm heading to Fairview Wine Estate to see the goats/goat tower. Over and out*
