Eat with your eyes

The Cape Craft & Design Institute’s (CCDI) Handmade Collection 2012 is on display in our restaurant – a collection of the best handmade products from the Western Cape. The beautiful works range from ceramics and textiles to glassware and upcycled materials. From 264 entries the judging panel decided on 70 final, outstanding objects.


CCDI chairperson Bart Verveckken said this: ““The panel has always been looking for products that are not only very well made, but have a strong visual or conceptual appeal; objects with a wow factor.”


Come see for yourself, and feel free to browse with a glass of bubbly in-hand.

Flying high

Five days jetting – well helicoptering – across the Western Cape with stopovers at beautiful restaurants, wine estates and hotels—one of which is us!

The official blurb is: “‘the ultra-V.I.P.’ Southern Cape Helicopter Trip from Civair is designed around the needs and wants of our most discerning, adventurous clients. This trip incorporates 5 days of ultimate luxury, excitement, romance, relaxation and adventure all in one trip.”


You’ll arrive at us on day five to be wined and dined. To start the trip the helicopter will carve right around the Cape Peninsula then head over to the Constantia Valley, dip into Elgin, Hermanus and Gaansbaai; and at each stop luxury awaits in the form of gourmet cuisine, spa treatments and plenty of Cape wine. For more information call: +27 (0)21 034 4488 or email: info@civair.co.za
