We went to Stanford for the long weekend with our friends Grant and Leonie and stayed at the amazing Stanford County Cottages. I didn’t know much about this quaint town until we actually got there. It’s a tiny town packed with plenty of vintage stores, little eateries and shops. We were highly recommended by our host Ansie to go to the most authentic Italian joint in the hood, Don Gelato - and what a treat it turned out to be. Its one of those places you feel like you can photograph anything and everything. The food was really good too.
Stanford is only a 150km drive from Cape Town and you feel like you have entered another time zone. Highly recommend this as a weekend escape - with wine, an indoor fireplace and spectacular nature around you, you basically have everything you need.
