In-between travelling the world, Ryk Neethling likes to come home to a place that offers the best of country living

WHERE DID YOU GROW UP?

I was born and bred in Bloemfontein.

WHERE DO YOU LIVE NOW AND WHY?

I live on Val de Vie Estate in the Western Cape, because it offers the best lifestyle in South Africa in my opinion. And I am one of the owners.

WHAT DID YOU WANT TO BE WHEN YOU WERE LITTLE?

A lawyer and a rugby player.

WHAT ARE YOU TODAY?

Marketing Director at Val de Vie, property developer and entrepreneur.

WHAT IS IMPORTANT TO YOU?

To always be passionate about what I do. Also, to make the most of my opportunities and make a difference in the lives of others.

WHAT DO YOU DO IN YOUR FREE TIME?

I enjoy reading, travelling and spending time in the outdoors.

WHICH MOMENT IN YOUR LIFE WILL YOU NEVER FORGET?

Walking into the filled-to-capacity Centennial Olympic Stadium in Atlanta as an 18-year-old and realising that my dream of becoming an Olympian was a reality.

WHERE DO YOU FEEL MOST AT HOME AND WHY?

At Val de Vie. It is safe and beautiful, and has every type of amenity I could ever need, including a winery, restaurants, gyms, pools and golf courses. It truly is country living at its best.

COULD YOU LIVE SOMEWHERE ELSE APART FROM IN THE WESTERN CAPE?

At this moment I really can’t think of a better place to live.

WHAT DOES YOUR DREAM HOME LOOK LIKE?

I am busy designing it at the moment…
