Village and Vintage was created with a gypsy heart and love for authentic homegrown products and experiences. Where life is about slowing down, leaving the daily devices behind (including a car) and finding time to just wander and explore. The essence behind every selection is ‘a short walk to a fabulous coffee’. We choose boutique and gorgeous stays in villages and unique settings that allow the traveler to walk down the road to a local coffee shop where the roast is great and the atmosphere warm and welcoming.
We have a growing a portfolio of cottages, villas, houses, apartments – each unique, each with huge character and each handpicked because of their individual touches, quirks, and charm.
A ‘you’re at home’ feeling whilst being away from it all.
Add to that we hand-pick experiences that you can’t necessarily find in the guides, ones that are authentic, tailored and homegrown. The homegrown roastery with coffee tasting, guided mountain bike tours, moonlight vineyard walks with renowned winemakers, a vintage VW camper wine tour or picnic… the list goes on. Step back in time a little, slow the spin and enjoy village life.
Our team travels have started in Franschhoek, our first love but are currently exploring far and wide to find extraordinary holiday and weekend escapes for fellow escapists. Quaint village or country settings where great food, coffee, and authentic experiences are on your doorstep. Allowing respite from the daily commute, juggle and rush.
