Lyonesse Villa is located on the slopes on Table Mountain, close to Constantia Nek (for those not too familiar with the layout of Cape Town, this is the back of the mountain - the side you usually see in photos is the front).
The views are absolutely incredible from here, and there are balconies all along the front of the villa to take advantage of this.
If you click through to Cape Town Daily Photo Extras, you'll see a whole lot of photos of the 2-acre indigenous garden. Seeing the wealth of colours and textures in the garden made me realise again just how diverse and beautiful the Cape Floral Kingdom is.
This is the last in our series of posts about Lyonesse Villa (see #1, #2 and #3, and visit Cape Town Daily Photo Extras for more photos of the house and garden). Thanks to our hosts, Ric and Robyn, for treating us to a superb weekend away!
