We were lucky enough to stay here to attend a friends wedding. We stayed in a vineyard suite. Decoration was modern but comfortable and shower room was huge. Stunning views all around. Breakfast was provided and although buffet style gave a good selection. Pool area was clean and well kept. Whilst there we also tried the bistro/bakery which was equally...

My wife and I went for a Valentines Day lunch which was fine, but it was disappointing that the view is of the car park. After we had eaten we took our drinks to the tasting area which has a magnificent view. The tables there are very spread out with large pots taking up a lot of the space. I...

This is one of my favourite estates in Franshoek. The terrace is beautiful and the view is really relaxing. We went for a wine tasting and liked a lot of their wines. The Jess is a really good rose, the margerite a lovely white and their flagship red was also very interesting.

My husband and I had our destination wedding at Vrede en Lust on 14 December 2016. We booked the entire venue as well as surrounding accommodation at neighbouring estates for 3 nights and it was the best decision we could have EVER made!

of our three trips to franschoek over the last few years we took the purple route tram and this was the first stop and I have to say was the best tasting experience we have ever had. The staff were amazing and the wines were wonderful. Add that to the scenery and it's somewhere not to be missed.

What a absolutely surprise. The breakfast was good,the sourdough bread add the rest. After that we had the best wine tasting experience. The girls in red definitely know the wine, where it was cultivated. Please don't pass this winery it is fully operating on solar power. Whow! I love it, more words, you will think they are paying me😊

We recently stayed for a wedding. The attention to detail was great; the rooms were great, we loved the environment, the wines were great and service was great with friendly staff. The wedding arrangements went well and the food at the wedding breakfast was excellent. This would have been a 5* review, however, the breakfast, particularly the scrambled eggs (there...

We stayed here for a wedding. We had a fantastic time, the rooms are high quality, the area is fantastic and the wine as you would expect is just amazing. The breakfast however was a disaster. When you ask for a coffee or tea you may get it right away or they may forget, that's 50/50. When it arrives the...

The surrounding landscape is absolutely magnificent. It is our favourite wine estate in South Africa. The rooms are spacious and very clean (with a bottle of tasty wine in the fridge). Impressive estate with a good home bakery (with the most delicious bread in the world). All in all an amazing experience.
