Check In: Babylonstoren

Cape Winelands, South Africa

In the debut issue of Wayfare–an extremely well-designed, brand-new online travel magazine–I wrote about photographer Bob Coscarelli and his wife Karen Valentine’s one-night farm and food adventure at Babylonstoren in the South African winelands. It’s a stunning sprawl of a place in the Cape Dutch vernacular, where all eight acres are wide-open for the exploring, picking and tasting. Their brief stay reminded me how much enjoyment you can pack into a single day. Answer: a lot, apparently. Preferably in the form of orchard traipsing, herbal baths and fireside picnics. And since every vista and vignette is as stunning as the next, here are a few bonus photographs from their trip that really capture the intimacy of the spaces–and how the interior and garden feel so connected.
