Wanting a little honeymoon seclusion, but a beach isn't your bag? India House is the answer.
This gorgeous cottage, in the Bainskloof Valley, part of an Unesco World Heritage Site, is just 90 minutes' drive from Cape Town - but it feels like a new world. Step through the bright turquoise door (imported from Gujarat, India, and from which the cottage gets its name) and the inside is cool white and cheerfully modern.
A nice touch is the dozens of candleholders built into the house's walls, so you can create that perfect romantic vibe. Looking to cool off? (Summers here get hot!). Head to the crystal-clear pool, or even take a dip in the river next to the cottage.
WOW FACTOR Try your hand at horseback riding through the region's stunning vineyards - and stop off for a glass along the way.
