After spending 3 days at L’Avenir, our impressions are strongly mixed: We experienced it as having wonderful facilities (spacious room with big wardrobe and en suite bath room, fantastic pool, decent rooms for breakfast and spending the evenings inside and outside) in the middle of an equally wonderful vineyard some minutes outside of Stellenbosch. The fantastic picnic basket provided by... More

After a long drive on a hot day and visiting busy wine estates, arriving at the peace and tranquility of L'Avenir was a real treat. It has a positive and warm vibe to it. In this case, small is indeed beautiful and we regretfully could only stay one night.

This is an interesting place. Only a small number of rooms right in the heart of a vineyard. It's for the most part sexily designed and the rooms were bright and clean. The infinity pool has stunning views. It's a bit of a flog into Stellenbosch itself but perfectly doable by cab. The only downer is that reception seemed a... More

I have been there with my family early January / 15 and it was very good. This is a charming hotel with few rooms, very comfortable, quiet and within a beautiful property. People who met us at the reception could not have been more friendly and helpful. We like it all, including the wines which were tasted in a nice... More

The Country Lodge was the best decision as a destination at the end of a long road! The reception was very friendly, checking in was a breeze. The room was very well appointed with the bathroom maybe the top feature. Or was that the private splash pool on our little patio? Or was it the complimentary wine? All of the... More

We arrived at the Guest House to be welcomed by a smiling Marshall. His mom, sister and himself work there which makes it very family run. From the time I booked this to the time we left, we had fabulous service. There is an honesty bar in the most serene lounge area. We had the honeymoon suite which had an... More

We have stayed at L'Avenir before and loved it but although we have tried to return several times this small lodge always seems to be fully booked. We were thrilled to finally succeed in getting a reservation for 2 nights in October and were not disappointed with the experience. Our room was gorgeous and the breakfasts on both mornings were...

I loved the view from my room so much, it was hard to close the curtains and get ready to sleep. But sleep I did and it was the deep happy sleep that goes with a supremely comfortable bed and quality linen. The spotless bathroom was wonderfully welcoming thanks to the under tile heating. The room was spacious and well... More

We had a wonderful reception and were made to feel at home - for me this is what I look for most in a place, the first impressions and whether one feels welcome. The grounds are lovely - a farm dam and rolling vineyards

Beautiful setting in the heart of the winelands, we had a wonderful stay and highly recommend it to anyone visiting the Stellenbosch winelands. Location is central to town and multiple wineries if you're planning on making a weekend of it!
