- 41 Balmoral Avenue, Hurlingham, Sandton, 2196, Gauteng
Festina Lente is located in Hurlingham, a suburb which lies between Sandhurst and Parkmore, which form the lower ends of a triangle with the Sandton CBD. Boasting upmarket kudos, the leafy avenues of Hurlingham have large, spectacular properties and fine views like those from Hilltop Street over Sandton. An area of choice for Johannesburg’s elite, it is also a shopping mecca for international visitors as well as South Africa’se influential and trendy. Lying in the heart of Sandton, Hurlingham sits basking in its association with Sandton, the city’s most illustrious corporate address, but also a vibey hive of activity with shopping malls and sidewalk cafés, excellent restaurants and general joie de vivre. This is indeed the place to soak up the Jo’burg atmosphere. Nelson Mandela Square is a popular meeting place and the heart of Sandton’s shopping complexes. It’s lined with open-air eateries and lunch time sees the city’s financial and corporate district turn out in suits for lengthy lunches interjected by intense and unsolicited cell phone banter. Despite the high-end shopping experience it offers, there are also walking tours in Sandton that cover its history in eight languages and take in no less than 29 landmarks. In addition, there is also a bird sanctuary and various art galleries.
