The quaint little town of Darling has stolen my heart and while I dream of one day buying a beautiful house with windows that look out on the vineyards, for now I just have to be content with counting down the days until I can visit again.
Here are my Top 5 Reasons to visit Darling now:
Darling is famous for the Spring Wildflowers and the time to visit is now! From the end of August until October, the hills come alive with a variety of Wildflowers.
Wine and Craft Beer
Darling boasts many award-winning wine farms and one amazing Craft Beer Brewery: Darling Brew. So whatever your taste, you will find it in this adorable town. I visited Ormonde Wines on my recent visit and they offer Wine Tastings, Chocolate & Wine Pairing and delicious Picnics.
Evita se Perron
Take in a show at Evita se Perron and get entertained by the fabulous Pieter-Dirk Uys on many topics affecting South Africa: it’s people, it’s politics and so much more.
Everyone that knows me, knows that I have a sweet tooth and Darling Sweet is like manna from heaven. Choose from a variety of amazing flavours, mine is Tannie Evita’s Classic Toffee. You can also watch the toffees being made and enjoy a toffee tasting with Fritz.
Darling has a variety of accommodation options available, but the last time I stay there, I stayed at The Granary Petite Hotel. It was very comfortable and as neat as a pin. Breakfast was served at Chicory Cheese Cafe which is located in the same building as the hotel. I stayed as a guest of West Coast Way SA and The Granary Petite Hotel.
So if you are looking for a little road trip to a quaint little town full of culture, great food & drink, look no further than Darling.
