Winter specials in Darling!

Darling, less than an hour’s drive from Cape Town… but a million miles away, offers great value getaways for the 2012 winter season.

The current economic climate has led to the need for tourists world-wide to trim spend wherever possible and Darling’s tourism community has come together to ensure that value is the order of the day when travelers visit this peaceful, safe and charming West Coast village.

Complimentary wine tasting (something not many wine cellars offer nowadays), country walks in flower reserves, close proximity to the 16 Mile Beach, galleries and the best small town museum in the country at a measly R10 entrance fee are just some of the free or inexpensive activities that beckon.

The time to recharge in a time-strapped world means looking for destinations that are close-by but significantly removed from city life.

With guesthouses and restaurants charging very reasonable prices compared to the more established tourism destinations and very affordable wines to be purchased from all of the local cellars, the visitor is assured that not only will they receive great value but they will leave feeling rested and restored.

Come see why it’s called “Darling”!
