Da anni ormai soggiorno al Saxon Lodge periodicamente, per visitare la costa sudafricana con tutte le sue bellezze paesaggistiche e faunistiche (grandi squali bianchi, balene, delfini, otarie e molto altro). Il Saxon Lodge è la mia casa, Dave e Caron - i gestori - sono la mia famiglia sudafricana. Non potrò mai descrivere appieno la loro simpatia, generosità e bontà, persone così meravigliose le incontri raramente sul tuo percorso e conoscerli è stato un ennesimo regalo che questo splendido Paese mi ha donato. Se soggiornerete al Saxon Lodge troverete privacy, camere molto grandi, bellissime, pulitissime e accessoriate (wifi internet, phon, shampoo, bagnoschiuma, saponette,asciugamani puliti ogni giorno, non vi preoccupate delle prese della corrente, hanno gli adattatori per le nostre spine). Un'altra grande sorpresa è stata il cibo: Caron è una cuoca straordinaria per qualunque piatto (e Dave e' il re della carne!), per non parlare dei dolci che per me sono praticamente un miracolo! Se siete vegetariani o celiaci non avete di che preoccuparvi, basta avvisarli prima. Ogni anno torno da loro, sono appena rientrata da dieci giorni fantastici e a settembre sarò di nuovo lì. Non posso far altro che ringraziarli di cuore, w Dave e Caron, w il Saxon Lodge!!!
I've been at Saxon Lodge for many years now, to visit the south african coast with all its landscapes and animal beauties (great white sharks, whales, dolphins, seals and much more). The Saxon Lodge is my house, Dave and Caron - the owners - are my south african family. I will never be able to describe completely their pleasantness, generosity and kindness, you rarely meet such beautiful people and meeting them has been another great gift from this beautiful country. If you are going to stay at the Saxon Lodge you will find privacy, big nice clean and super-accessorized rooms (wifi internet, hair drier, shampoo, shower cream, soaps, fresh towels every day... and don't worry about wall power socket, they have adapters for your plug). Food was another big surprise: Caron is a truly extraordinay chef for every dish she prepares (and Dave is the king of meat!), especially for the sweets that are quite a miracle to me! If you are vegetarian or celiac you have nothing to worry about, just tell them in advance. Every year I come back to them, I just came back from ten fantastic days and I will be there again in september. I can't do anything but thank them with all my heart, long live Dave and Caron, long live the Saxon Lodge!
