Elegant Places is a luxury travel agency based in South Africa that specialised in establishments that are Cape Dutch is style suited to the ideal destination wedding or honeymoon. With this in mind we book you into the finest places and combine that with a personalised service. From fabulous manor homes to understated farm houses we've found these 'gems' for the ultimate in luxury and romance.

Elegant Places was established in September 2011. I've a passion for Cape Dutch architecture and see this as a niche in the South Africa market. No where else in the world are these types of establishments shown so consistency and have so much time taken care of, with attention to detail, to reflect their former glory.

Through that I've set-up relationships with my pre-selected suppliers that are the best reflection of an old age past brought up to modern times. I've access to these beautiful properties to show you how lovely they are and where time simply stands still.

The styled 'gables' follow certain characteristics and features that all faithfully followed. All plastered with absolute precision that are masterpieces in their own right. However their intricacies show that they are all different, from simple lines or ornate swishes and twirls. Like all individuals they reflect their own personality that shines through.

Come on an adventure with me as we peak through the 300 year old Cape Oak trees and step into a world that is like no other.

Together with a splash of an African Safari or beach escape to Zanzibar for the ultimate African Experience.

Travel Agent or Not?

Travel prices are set by the suppliers (resorts, cruise lines, tour companies, etc.) and they have already factored in a travel agent's commission. If you work hand-in-hand with a travel professional, you benefit from his/her experience, guidance, and expert advice, and it costs you the same as if you did all the work yourself. The agent makes a living on the commissions paid from the travel supplier, you don't pay any extra for your honeymoon, and you get all that help and advice for free.

Elegant Places will provide a free quote based on your requirements i.e. dates, room standard, type of lodging - winelands/safari, max price etc within 48 hours.
