Great value for Money! Superb service, the room was great and spacious. Dirk the winemaker really made our stay and takes the time to get to know you and share his knowledge. Was a fascinating experience having dinner with Matt Manning cooking his one ingredient course across all 5 dishes! We will be back!

We stayed here for part of our honeymoon. Lovely French style vineyard setting. Great breakfast and friendly service. Room was spacious and quiet. Not far from town centre with restaurants on the main rd. large common reading/tv area. Swimming pool was just a little cool but it was wintertime!

Thank you for making our stay unforgettable! Warm welcome, great service and staff very helpful. Even though we were only an hour from home we felt like we far away on a breakaway when we woke up with this serene, peaceful surrounding. We also did wine tasting and wine shopping the next day and had a fabulous time. Thank you... More

We were very, very well looked after by all the charming staff who went out of their way to accommodate us (we arrived late and they had an excellent dinner waiting for us); the rooms were delightful, well appointed and spacious,with extremely comfortable beds.

Set in the beautiful vineyards of the estate of L'Avenir, this elegantly sophisticated and private boutique lodge offers everything. Quiet retreat, lovely breakfasts and light meals combined with a beautiful swimming pool and very comfortable pool loungers. Very well located in terms of accessing the lovely town of Stellenbosch where you will find a wide variety of Restaurants and shops.
