We now realise after years and years of therapy (we kid! we kid!) that we’re probably never going to live in a villa in Italy. But if we ever want to escape for a night, The Palazzo at Montecasino is where we’d go! From the moment you step inside, you can’t help but let the charm of Italy take over … think captivating murals, cobbled walkways and Tuscan-inspired architecture. On the foodie front, we can’t get enough of Medeo Restaurant’s delightful Mediterranean-inspired meals … prawn ravioli anyone? After you’ve eaten yourself into a food coma (and you will), you can retreat to one of the über-luxurious rooms … they’re so comfy you may never want to leave. If you ask us, this is the perfect spot to escape with your husband for a romantic night away. Where’s your fave spot to escape to in Joburg? Montecasino Boulevard, Johanneburg. Details: 011-510-3000
