Prince Albert is an almost compulsory stopover for any north-south trip I make because it is one of South Africa’s most delightful villages… and more importantly, it is home to one of my favourite people. Elaine Hurford has been a close friend for about 30 years and I always find her sense of style and insights inspiring.
We stayed in a house that Elaine has on her books for sale* and a special ‘thank you’ is due to Elise Senekal for having us and especially Beezus to stay. “Bokkie” is a frequent visitor and has his meals on the lawn in front of the house, so pets are usually a no-no here.
Miller’s House is a delight — two luxurious, en-suite, air-conditioned bedrooms — but it’s the stoep and setting that make it really special. It’s set right alongside a dam… with a rowing boat moored a few steps from the front door!
Prince Albert itself was as spellbinding as ever. The following are Tania’s take on a walkabout the village.
