‘Experience a Luxurious Overnight Country Escape to Avianto’

Although Johannesburg is known as the ‘Mother City’ of South Africa and the place where the majority of South Africans reside and travel to and fro, there are small pockets of heavenly countryside scattered around the outskirts of this large and diverse city.

One of them is the splendid Avianto, located Muldersdrift, a picturesque rural area situated 27 kilometres northwest Johannesburg, and easily accessible from Pretoria too. Adjacent to the Crocodile River, with blue skies, lush greenery, and staggering views, Avianto is close to the city, unexpected and remarkable.

With its stone archways and winding cobbled paths around the sprawling compound filled with flowerbeds, it’s easy to think for a minute you’re wandering around the streets of Rome or a Tuscan village.

The Hotel at Avianto is set slightly apart from the main function venues, and tucked away along the meandering pathways, Avianto’s 30 luxury rooms and five suites exude the understated elegance of an Italian country estate and feature air-conditioning, room service, mini bars, safes, plush bath towels, and luxurious beds and linen. 

There are lower and upper-level rooms. Some are hidden and covered up by bushes and trees, like secret garden hideaways. secluded by greenery.

Anke Ferreira

I am a wife, a mother and an entrepreneur, but most of all I am an adventurer at heart. Currently I live in an area called the ‘Deep South or South Peninsula’ in Cape Town, South Africa, only 2-3 miles from the Ocean. I am privileged to work and stay in one of the most beautiful places in the world, or so I believe. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Law, specialise in Sports Massage and Manage a Creative, Art and Design NPO called ‘The Thinking Fund’. I enjoy out of the box thinking in business, but probably should have pursued a career in the Creative Arts or Literature.

I have a poem published in a Parenting Book, written by a South African Author and I hope to one day have more of my own poems and writings published.

My hobbies include running, reading, art, traveling, tasting cuisines from different establishments and cultures, drinking wine and writing poetry, but what I love is sharing these experiences with others, much like a play on words, you are able to bring your own story and imagination to life in the mind of the reader.

Life has taken me on various journeys, and each one tells its own unique story...as 'Our story only ends when we stop creating the narrative!'
