Hemel-en-Aarde Valley, South Africa
'Heaven-and-Earth'An hour or so out of Cape Town and on the way to watch whales at the seaside town of Hermanus, the Overberg mountains form the backdrop to a beautiful, lush valley. It was so picturesque by those who saw it the first time, that they named it literally "Heaven and Earth".
Now a premier wine region with superb restaurants and farm stalls, the pace is laid back, the air fresh and the mood content. Find your Zen in this valley where you can - almost - touch heaven!
