Glorious Spring has arrived on The Garden Route

Knysna Spring blog

Of the many South African destinations, Knysna, Plett & Noetzie are the perfect location for Spring holiday relaxation. 

They are all teeming with new life and the little seedlings aren’t the only things stirring this spring. From sampling the current harvest of wines to gourmet meals, sun, surf and sightseeing, Knysna, Plett & Noetzie have it all.

The month of September traditionally heralds spring in this part of the world and coastal beauty is unrivalled when it comes to the Garden Route and Wilderness. No surprise then,  that the name ‘Knysna’ is derived from a Khoikhoi word meaning “ferns”!

Knysna has an average of 9 hours sunshine during spring, so take advantage, pack those bags and head out to South Africa for some fresh sea air.

The stunning nature reserves in the coastal area come highly recommended for heart-stopping beauty. Try the Featherbed Nature Reserve, which can be located via ferry from the Knysna Lagoon not far from any of our properties. Walk alongside forested paths to the ancient Khoi Khoi caves transporting you back in time. It’s rival, and by no means less breathtaking, is the Steenbok nature reserve (also in Knysna), which offers an interpretive boardwalk and an indigenous garden.

Not forgetting the wine connoisseur, Knysna offers high calibre wine estates that offer tasting excursions daily. Packwood Wine Estate for example, produces an awarding winning Sauvignon Blanc and a Pinot Noir MCC served with lunch on a beautiful terrace.

After a day out, why not wind down with a refreshing glass of locally harvested wine – on the patio of a beautiful luxury villa? Knysna, Noetzie and Plett offer premium beachfront holiday rentals where your home is literally your castle.

Let our homes put that spring back into your step this month! We look forward to seeing you!
