This property in the tony Constantia winelands dates back to the 1700s, but it was redone in 2012 with a distinctly modern sensibility. The 19 rooms have gilded mirrors, under-floor heating, impossibly soft robes, and plush seating, all the makings of a opulent but cozy retreat. One of our favorite mischievous touches: the fun desk chair in the shape of a woman's backside.
