Full property description

The "Burgundy Bourgogne" cottages are a hidden treasure amidst fifty hectares of vines, olive groves and lavender and centuries old oaks in a quiet corner of the fabled valley of Franschhoek.

The accommodation is split into the main Manor house and three cottages. The Manor House was built in 1791 and is now a Heritage site. It has been meticulously restored and beautifully furnished. The bedrooms are luxurious and comfortable with big windows that embrace the stunning scenery that surround the house. The interiors are an eclectic mix of new but keeping the character and spirit of the original house. The open plan dining room is perfect to relax and enjoy a good read and in winter. The fireplace makes it a great place for entertaining and having a glass of wine with friends.

The remaining three quaint thatched homesteads Lavender, Olive and Rose are spread out so you feel like you have your privacy and space. A great spot for a group of friends or those looking for a relaxing getaway!

Location

Area description

Franschhoek is a pretty and historic village at the heart of the Cape Winelands just an hour and a half's drive from Cape Town. It is rightly known as one of South Africa’s culinary hot-spots, with numerous regular winners of top SA restaurants awards lining its one main street or perched on the lofty mountain slopes of this narrow valley with majestic views all around.

Chic cafes and bistros make for popular lunch spots and there are ample shopping opportunities to enjoy as well when not visiting the many excellent Franschhoek wine estates, old and new that offer superb wine tasting experiences, as well as also often catering to visitors for lunch and dinner.
