A family holiday at Kurland Estate is magical at any time of the year, but especially so for Kurland’s owners over Christmas because they relish the chance to have the whole family together.

Not only is there plenty of space for the whole family (and their extended families) to stay together in one place, but they love that Kurland gives them a chance to experience the best of both worlds: Plettenberg Bay during the festive season, with all of its hustle and bustle, and Kurland at the height of summer, a beautifully calm sanctuary of luxury country living that offers peace, quiet and quality time together.

“I never tire of the magical, homely (and spacious!) kitchen we gather in to prepare and cook our delicious Christmas feasts,” Nicky says. “We have hams, turkeys, Christmas cakes, mince pies, and all the trimmings. We also look forward to foraging in the pine forests for the ultimate Christmas tree and then gather as is our family tradition to decorate the tree. We all know, then, that Christmas has arrived!”

Sundowners on the verandah, children coming and going, and enjoying the activity that the Estate’s polo fields generate during the summer tournament season are typical occurrences that the Elphicks and their extended families have come to love about Kurland during the festive season. And these same experiences are the reason why so many of Kurland’s guests return to the Estate year after year at different times.

If you’re looking for a magical place to celebrate with friends and loved ones, no matter what the season or occasion, Kurland’s Homestead and Villa offer privacy, luxury, flexibility, and, most importantly, space to breathe and enjoy spending quality time surrounded by the people you love.
