As the temperature rises, so does the year-end pressure for city rats. A quick weekend break-away is the perfect escape, and Irene Country Lodge the ultimate destination.
Irene is offering a summer promotion of only R750 pp per night sharing over weekends, valid from October 2008 to January 2009. This will include a private dinner on your patio, as well as a blissful massage of your choice.
Activities to enjoy on and around the property over the weekend includes: a lazy brunch in The Lakeside Country Kitchen Restaurant; a massage in your room; bird-watching on the rolling lawns of the property; visits to Irene Dairy Farm; Irene Flea Market and the Smuts House Museum. Restore body and mind by exploring the Hennops River hiking trail or the variety of wildlife in the Zwartkops Nature Reserve. There are over 100 species of birds settled in the sanctuary of the lake area on the property and is any nature lover’s dream.
The Irene area offers excellent golfing opportunities, with two adjacent 18 hole golf courses, and is in close proximity to the Centurion Cricket Stadium where international cricket matches and other events are regularly hosted. Other leisure options in the area include tennis, squash and a gymnasium. There are also an abundance of shopping centres and exquisite restaurants close by.
Alternatively, a summer weekend picnic in the shade of the oak trees is sure to be a treat for the whole family. The picnic basket from the kitchen at the lodge has variety of tasty treats and is ideal for day visitors to the property.
Unwinding during the week has a new meaning at Irene Country Lodge. Watching as the sun set over the lake on the banks of Irene’s rolling lawns, is an ideal end to the working day. Relax with an ice-cold cocktail on the water’s edge between 17h00 and 19h00 on weekdays, and enjoy another one on the house.
