The COVID-19 pandemic has put everybody’s resilience to the test and there still is no end in sight.
Luckily, as lockdown restrictions continue to ease and the travel industry begins its revival, there is no longer a need for people to remain locked away in their homes.
Instead, they have the opportunity to venture out in search of some hard-earned spoils to lift the spirits and melt the stress away. Here are some options from South Africa’s scenic Garden Route.
Luxury stay at The Manor House at Fancourt
Some travellers will be looking for an adrenaline-inducing adventure while others will be hoping to sit back, relax and indulge in life’s more sophisticated pleasures.
Those seeking the latter should consider a stay at The Manor House at Fancourt, near George, where they can savour stunning Garden Route views and warm, generous hospitality at its finest.
“The Manor House was built in the 1850s in the style of a Cotswold mansion and it has served as a restful, romantic haven for guests for many decades.
“The most notable aspects of the Manor House include its gorgeous garden complete with a peaceful gazebo, its private dining decks, swimming pool and library – just calling for you to curl up with a good book,” Fancourt sales and marketing director Peter Dros said.
