For those seeking sanctuary in semi-rural surrounds - this is it.

A member of the Last Word family of seriously luxurious boutique guest houses, The Constantia was once a private home and it still has a warm and welcoming feel to it. It's tucked away off one of Constantia's popular thoroughfares and with its classic interior decoration and sprawling garden it feels like a smart home-from-home. I last visited in early spring and I could just imagine bagging myself a lounger and spending the day sunning myself by the pool while breathing in the scents of fresh garden flowers.

The beautiful gardens and large pool terrace are worthy of a mention and there is also a spacious lounge for relaxing indoors.
