Intiem = Intimate - Heerlike olyf- en wynproe! Evita se perron was giggerlsnaaks. Delicious olive and wine tasting! Evita se Perron was hilarious.

About Darling - Darling may be a small town but has so much to offer tourists. We had a memorable stay in Darling. We attended the Wild Flower Show, Pieter Dirk Uys's show, the Darling Museum and took trips into the country to see wildflowers. Darling is also close to several wineries of distinction. The Duckitts Orchid Nursery just outside Darling is another fabulous place to visit and purchase some lovely orchids.

Darling - Central to so many attractions - Darling is close enough to Cape Town for a weekend away without a long drive. I was surprised, when I planned my family trip, to discover how central darling actually is. You can get to so many places with only a 15-minute drive. From beer tasting, wine tasting, olive tasting, beaches and a game farm. I am sure there is much more that I did not see. The local people are extremely friendly. It was wonderful to see that local businesses supported each other by displaying local art for sale and recommending other local venues. We found this at a number of places we went to. A real community feel. Appearances can be deceiving. We went to a local restaurant for pizza and I was a bit apprehensive when we arrived. What a gem of a place. The food was exceptional. Two of us had pizza and the other two burgers. The food was fresh and plentiful and the service was friendly. Service was slow but it didn't put a damper on the evening. Darling is a surprising destination that I would recommend for a relaxing weekend.
