Festive season or season of festivities, no matter how you look at it, summer is here and brings with it dinner parties, cocktail parties, weddings, baby showers, and just about any reason to get out and socialise is a good enough of a reason to do so. Capetonians and tourists alike know there is no shortage for choice when it comes to venues in and around Cape Town and as lovely as it is to have all these options it often proves to be as much of a pain as a blessing, in that it’s just so hard to decide which venue you would like to go to. Luckily The Alphen Boutique Hotel has not one, two but three options for you to choose from so you can now enjoy various atmospheres in one magical venue.
Enjoy a tea party at la Belle
There is no need to travel to France to enjoy a quaint bistro style lunch or tea party; in fact you need not leave Cape Town. Simply pull into La Belle with a group of friends and enjoy an array of delicious confectionaries with the finest warm beverages under the historical oak trees on our estate. La Belle is the perfect venue for your baby showers, kitchen teas, catch up lunch session with friends or if you’re simply looking for an intimate lunch venue, this is definitely the place for you.
Take La Belle home with you
Not everyone is an avid baker and even fewer so are any good at it… none the less many people prefer entertaining in the comfort of their own home… Imagine being able to host your very own high tea with a spread fit for royalty? Now you can, Simply pre-order your baked goods and confectionaries from La Belle, plate them on your favourite server and pretend you were up all night slaving away to produce the amazing myriad of delicious treats presented to your guests… It’s the only way to entertain!
