About Us

We are a proudly South African couple who divide our time between the picturesque Karoo town of Prince Albert and the small coastal city of Port Elizabeth. Louise is the former features editor of Port Elizabeth newspapers The Herald and Weekend Post, and Salvelio is an artist and photographer with a strong Latin heritage. We love nothing more than discovering interesting food, art and vintage finds wherever our travels take us, whether in Salvelio’s ancestral home in the province of Salamanca, Spain or in beautiful South Africa at the southern tip of Africa. Inspired by our mutual love of the Karoo, we bought an 1860s Victorian home in the historic heart of Prince Albert at the end of 2016, and have transformed it into a charming country getaway for visitors from around the globe.
