ACCOMMODATION IN DARLING
This pretty little country town has it all. It’s about an hour’s drive from Cape Town, there are great wineries nearby, and it has a spectacularly diverse floral display in spring. It also has Pieter Dirk Uys, aka Evita Bezuidenhout. This renowned actor, comic and social commentator has made the town his home, enhancing it with his unique style and converting the disused railway station into a theatre, restaurant and tourist attraction. Other artists followed, and the town is a cultural gem.
