We stayed in the Angel suite for a night without the kids and were looking forward to a luxurious getaway. It started off well enough with the room tastefully decorated, a large bathroom and a gorgeous fireplace. The staff were very helpful and we enjoyed a great lunch at the estate restaurant. Upon returning to our room, we tried to... More

My husband and I spent the night in the Honeymoon Cottage which was tastefully decorated and extremely comfortable and situated in the vineyards of Franschhoek. It was a particularly cold evening and we were warmly greeted with a delicious sherry and underfloor heating that took the edge off the cold weather. Dinner in The Restaurant was included in the rate... More

Having visited the cottage on numerous occasions, we knew what to expect. However, little did I know that my husband and June had been planning a surprise birthday that involved transporting our friends in from London and Cape Town! It was the most memorable, overwhelming weekend of my life and I truly would not have wanted to spend it anywhere... More

This was the second time that we stayed at the Owner's Cottage of Grande Provence and it was as memorable as the last time. It is idyllically situated between the vineyards of Franschoek. The whole estate is extremely tastefully done both from and architectural as well as from an interior decorating point of view. The restaurant is excellent and the... More

The one thing to note here is that grande provence is not a top starred hotel & does not offer the amenities and conveniences of a hotel. I would say that the vibe here is more guest house/b&b. if this is what you are used to or looking for you might enjoy this experience, unfortunately it was not the right... More

We had previously stayed at the owners cottage where we had our wedding, which was simply amazing. The chance to return and experience the incredible hospitality and setting was just too appealing. After celebrating our wedding at the owners cottage with 30 friends this was always going to be a different trip. However, we were not disappointed. Such a relaxing... More

A magical setting with stunning gardens, romantic, relaxing, discreet, private... June and her staff were wonderful, with so many little special touches. You can trust... More

We recently stayed at the Owner's Cottage at Grande Provence Estate. I had been to the estate earlier to check on the accommodation options and was greeted by June, who showed me the different options available. I decided to choose La Provencale as it was a little more secluded, was completely private and was a beautiful set up. Leading up... More

My boyfriend and I had a romantic stay at Grande Provence Estate. Everything was just perfect, great service and very nice location between the vineyards. Thanks so much to June and her team for this stay. Can't wait to go back there!

We were lucky enough to win our two night stay in the beautiful Owners Residence. June and her staff were very helpful and friendly and made our stay very special. This is a very private residence and I can see why Royalty, celebrities and statesman favourite it. The pool area and outside seating is stunning and the roaring fires and... More
