Angala Boutique Hotel: Franschhoek

The Angala Boutique Hotel in Franschhoek is quite a surprise coming to the end of the bumpy dirt track that twists up through the vineyards behind Vrede en Lust to find this contemporary glass box with sweeping valley views and stylish furnishings. The modern design – comprising just 11 rooms dotted in terraced grounds – sits remarkably easy in this natural idyll.
