Sometimes a place steals your heart and it becomes home, forever. For me, it’s the Overberg and her surroundings. I grew up in Caledon and spent countless summer and winter holidays in Hermanus. There were many weekends too; the ocean was just around the corner thanks to Hemel-en-Aarde’s old winding dirt road connecting the farms. This was long before this part of the world became prized winelands. When I started working, I’d sometimes catch the bus home from Cape Town. And our only stop the Botrivier café, where the main road splits to run along the sea, past Kleinmond to Hermanus and further on towards Stanford, or meander amongst wheat fields en route to Caledon. When the bus pulled in at this little café, I knew it was just half an hour…

new & now

1. WHITE, WHITER, WHITEST White is the epitome of positivity, hygiene and calm – everything that we are currently striving for. Almost a new beginning. By using white for the majority of a room and not making it too cluttered, you will instantly create a sense of peace. In this lounge, the wallpaper from GROEN (groenjan.co.za) also registers as white. Here you can read, work and even take a siesta. 2. THIS IS WHERE IT ALL HAPPENS The kitchen has become the new social gathering place where we also work and have virtual meetings. Everyone spends more time cooking. Gran’s old recipe book has been rediscovered and we get all nostalgic while we create and celebrate family favourites. Cleaning is also a big trend.

treasured coast

A traveling Dutch schoolmaster, Hermanus Pieters, herded his sheep along an elephant path through the Hemel-and-Aarde Valley in the 1830s and decided to set up camp at a freshwater fountain on the shores of the Indian ocean. He could not have guessed that his name would live on through this little settlement where the fish virtually caught themselves. The first fishermen to launch their boats from the Old Harbour simply called it Visbaai, or Fish Bay, as the fish were so plentiful. It was not until 1857 that the hamlet was named Hermanuspietersfontein, which was shortened to Hermanus in 1902. The length of “Hermanuspietersfontein” proved too cumbersome for Mr. Gift, postmaster at the time, who decided his mail sorting would benefit from the shorter form. I must confess to wondering “why…

LOVELYAS WELL AS DELICIOUS We wanted to work with nature MARELIZE IVANOV The most beautiful time of day on Sophia Farm is early morning, just after sunrise.

At any given moment, you’ll find about ten varieties of edible flowers (around 26 altogether) here. They are handpicked while jolly honeysuckers chirp away in the background, devouring…
