The most exclusive stop on South Africa’s beautiful Garden Route, Plett (as it’s known locally) has something for everyone – from the world’s newest, smallest wine route, to top class restaurants, to educational or relaxed family activities.

Produce is fresh and local, the people are friendly and the weather almost always perfect.
