We were here over 3 days for a friends wedding. We stayed down the road but spent a fair bit of time here and the rooms were great. Very spacious with a modern feel to them. The staff were very friendly and went out of their way to help you. The views were stunning and all the food was delicious.... More

Our 2 night stay at this vineyard was sensational. The staff were over the top kind and helpful, nothing was too much to ask. The rooms were just divine, the facilities tremendous. Just to be able to amble around the vineyard and watch the sunset from the balcony was stunning. We had a (Braai) BBQ at the poolside one evening... More

My husband and I did not like the B&B we originally booked in Franschhoek, so we had to quickly find a place to stay for two nights in the area. After a quick TripAdvisor and Booking.com search, I booked a last-minute cottage at Vrede en Lust. Overall, the property is absolutely gorgeous, but we faced some water issues that negatively...

Thanks for your review B.G._Chicago! I have to apologize for the water issue. As a farm we are dependent on borehole water and at Vrede en Lust we are blessed with good quality water from 2 deep (300'+) boreholes. The borehole water gets filtered and undergoes ozone treatment to ensure its perfect for guests, the winery and the restaurant. What... More

We went there in January and the sunset is magic sitting having a drink by the wine yards Food and service is very good. We had a set menue. We all thought it was very very good. But would have preferred a la Carte. The building is so beautiful.

We got married here early in 2015, and it truly was the most beautiful wedding venue imaginable. Elzahn, Lynn and her team were fantastic, and put on a great occasion. And chef JP was marvelous too. We scouted a few potential venues for the wedding, and went with Vrede en Lust, and it definitely didn't disappoint. Everyone was blown away... More

Vrede en Lust's wines are fantastic, their food is wonderful and the experience is down to earth, yet value for money. I would recommend it to anyone. Make sure to eat at the restaurant and taste wine! The waiters are friendly and the whole experience was excellent! Well done!

We had 21 guests staying at VNL for our wedding this past weekend. Not only were the rooms really nice, the accommodation manager, Linn, was really good in getting everyone in their respective rooms and also letting us have a late breakfast to recover from the previous night's festivities.

We stayed here, with our parents, for 3 nights in october 2014. And we had a wonderful stay. The staff is so welcoming and helpful. The estate and everything surrounding it is absolutely beautiful!! We would definitely stay here again.

I visited several wineries in the Franschhoek area and I found this to be one of the best. The winery itself was gorgeous and the view from the back patio was amazing. I sampled several of the wines, and although all were good, the Jess Rose was the most unique and refreshing. The staff members were also inviting and friendly,... More

We stayed four nights in Jaques which was excellent very comfortable and spacious. We received a very warm welcome on our late arrival from Corne who helped us to settle in and even found us a bottle of wonderful red wine. During our stay both Lynne and Corne were always helpful and made us feel very welcome. The breakfast was... More
