About the event
This retreat is one for lovers of wine, food, yoga and the outdoors. Imagine yoga in the vineyards, charming farm style accommodation, private wine-tastings, guided hikes into the Stellenbosch mountains, and gathering under the stars for an evening of music and delicious food.
The retreat will be hosted at Camberley Estate, a boutique wine farm situated between Stellenbosch and Franschhoek.
Camberley is known for its exceptional wines, wonderfully warm owners, and beautiful farm cottages overlooking the Simonsberg mountain.
Guests can look forward to private tastings in the cellar, delicious harvest tables of freshly made food from the area and yoga in one of the most beautiful farm gardens you'll ever see! We'll also explore the valley on foot enjoying beautiful hikes onto neighbouring farms and in the Banhoek Conservancy. An evening of music and food under the stars at Boschendal is sure to be a highlight of this retreat weekend, and there'll also be an opportunity to explore other nearby estates like Dalewood Cheese Farm, Thelema and Tokara to fully experience what the valley has to offer.
