One of the best things about traveling abroad, other than simply traveling abroad, is the opportunity to purchase all sorts of wonderful European decorating magazines at the airport. Case in point, Elle Decoration UK Country. A large beautiful book filled with amazing country homes all over the world. All I had to do was open the front cover and I fell in love with this South African gem. ‘Zevenrivieren was built in the 18th century, and is a great example of Cape Dutch architecture. While the house had been neglected over the years, the current owners were keen to restore the beautiful property, which is located in the Banhoek Valley surrounded by mountains and vineyards. The results are breathtaking. My kinda place – 18th century house and a glass of wine straight from the source.
