Like many other millennials, I live in a small flat in the city where space comes at serious premiums and peace and quiet often needs to be found at yoga studios - because of this, I always jump at the chance to head out of town and play country-house-living.

It's hard to believe that it's been two years since Tintswalo Atlantic was almost destroyed in a Cape Town wildfire. If you visit the five-star boutique lodge today, you'll find a place that's risen from the ashes and resumed its position as one of the top spots for a luxury escape.
