A working book of South African travel, interiors and lifestyle.
What makes the perfect holiday in South Africa? Increasingly, there is a nostalgic longing for simple country living, a need to satisfy the urge to decamp from the city to a bolt hole somewhere remote from everyday life.
From bush to beach, from city to wilderness, ‘Perfect Hideaways in South Africa’ features a range of holiday homes that, by virtue of their unique locations, offer varieties of different experiences. They’re found on remote escarpments of the Western Cape hinterland, in the vineyard-filled valleys of the Boland and among the mountains of the Overberg. And whether or not they’re on the edge of small country towns in the Sandveld and the Swartland, each has been invested with the passions and personality of its owner.
‘Perfect Hideaways in South Africa’ is a lavishly illustrated book of South African travel, interiors and lifestyle written by Paul Duncan and published for Perfect Hideaways by Africa Press. His new imprint brings to the reader curated worlds with authentic, accessible and engaging content of which the significance is more than just a passing celebration of ‘local is best’.
“Beautiful photography and written in such a way that you feel you are there lazing under the baobab tree, paddling in the lagoon, floating in the azure pool. Love it!”
– Laura, London
“It is a stunner of a book. Filled with the most beautiful of places, some of which we know and some we don’t. I just feel all summery and ‘I should be on holiday’ as I read through the embarrassment of riches on offer.”
– Michael Olivier, food and wine writer, published author and broadcaster, Cape Town
