2019 Is here and so is Agape Apartments

Posted on Tue January 1, 2019.

Find out why it is super cool to stay in your own self-catering apartment when exploring the Cape Wine Region and Cape Town.

Who is talking of cooking? Of course it is great to stand in front of the induction stove and AEG hot air oven, but not for New Year! One of the fantastic pros when staying in a cosmopolitan town with loads of international influences and cuisines, you can simply pop out to the many deli's, restaurants, specialty stores or markets and collect some amazing food, whatever tickles your fancy, for the special event. Our choice was to enjoy delectable sushi, collected from Oceans 8 Seafood and Sushi Restaurant in Somerset West as well as from the Food Lover's Market. We prepared the Salmon and Tuna sashimi ourselves and enjoyed an outstanding dinner on our patio at Agape Apartments, watching the sun set over False Bay. 

Lunch at the renowned Rust en Vrede Wine Estate, under the great oaks on Sunday, secured an excellent Jean Engelbrecht box of 6 bottles of 2018 Donkiesbaai Steen, which was perfectly paired to the sushi. I will leave it up to your imagination of how many bottles are left .... 

A great bottle of Graham Beck MCC Brut Pinot Noir Chardonnay saw us into the New Year, whilst watching the display of fireworks over Strand and Gordon's Bay. 

Whether it is a special occasion or whether one just wants to enjoy the freedom of staying in a luxury self-catering apartment, there are truly so many advantages of becoming one of the locals, shopping where it is the In Thing to do and to simply enjoy the good South African lifestyle. Of course we all love to go to the many outstanding restaurants which surround Agape Apartments, but it was really great, not quite foraging for our dinner, but choosing outstanding ingredients to be enjoyed in the most spectacular setting.
