An exclusive itinerary which showcases the Last Word portfolio, a group of luxurious boutique properties, where the emphasis is always on offering the very best service possible and ensuring that the guest has the most private of stays. Complimentary mini-bars, pre-dinner canapes and super-sized suites are the hallmarks of this renowned collection and, with nowhere having more than 10 rooms or suites, a highly personalised experience is assured.
The many attractions of Cape Town are followed by time spent on the extraordinary beaches of the Cape Peninsula and in the beautiful wine region village of Franschhoek.
Exclusive to Africa Travel: Travel between 1 May and 30 September and receive an additional complimentary night at all three properties!
Depart London on the direct overnight flight to Cape Town.
On arrival collect hire car and drive into Cape Town to stay for two nights on bed & breakfast basis at the Last Word Constantia.
Situated in the Cape’s oldest and most beautiful wine valley just minutes from some of Constantia’s most highly-regarded wine estates, this is a country retreat which is close to the city – allowing the best of both worlds. Less than 20 minutes drive to the beach, this hideaway has just nine beautifully decorated suites, all with private patios, a separate lounge area and vast tiled bathroom. Magnificent breakfasts are served, spa treatments are available, and the verdant garden is home to a solar-heated outdoor swimming pool & sundeck.
Drive onward to stay for two nights on dinner, bed & breakfast basis at the Last Word Long Beach.
An elegant beach house-style stay beckons at The Long Beach, which sits in a picturesque lobster-fishing village at the end of one of the Cape’s most photogenic beaches. Miles of white sand and infinite views of the ocean make for a relaxing stay, where guests can simply enjoy the magnificent setting, or walk, surf or horse-ride on the beach. Each of the six spacious suites has a sea view and private patio, and there is also a solar heated swimming pool and a residents bar.
Continue to Franschhoek to stay for two nights on bed & breakfast basis at the Last Word Franschhoek.
The atmospheric village of Franschhoek is famed for its spectacular wine estates and eateries, and at its very heart lies this award-winning Huguenot-style villa. Enviably tucked away off the main street, the ten large bedrooms, two of which have access to private pools, are set in a charming garden just a short stroll away from numerous boutiques, bistros and wine-tasting opportunities. The superb staff have gained a loyal following amongst returning guests, for their superb levels of personalised service, with assistance with restaurant bookings & sightseeing ideas the norm.
Return hire car at Cape Town airport and depart on the direct overnight flight to the UK.
Arrive London early morning.
