We stayed at Grande Provence for three nights in February 2015 - in the self-contained Angel Suite. We thought it was wonderful....... The grounds were very pretty, the room was beautifully-appointed, the bed was fabulously comfortable, the breakfasts were super and the staff were unfailingly helpful. Our only (minor) complaints were that the rooms didn't have wi-fi and that the... More

We had a wonderful two night stay at this lovely boutique farmhouse – the Owner’s Cottage at Grande Provence Heritage Wine Estate in Franschhoek, October 2014. However, this place may not be everyone’s cup of tea. Others have reported that there is no one there at night and it’s true. If you need someone to be available 24/7, this is... More

My family of 4 stay at 2-bedroom cottage at Grande Provence Heritage Estate. We are amazed by the beautiful garden & gallery at day 1. On day 2, after our half day great white shark cage diving, the television set is dismantled and removed from our cottage without notifying us. Our guide has to call and help the staff to... More

The cottage was tastefully furnished, we had highly personalised service and the meals were lovely. Wonderful breakfast to start the day. The dinner at the main restaurant was exceptional and singularly the best we had in our entire trip to South Africa. Loved the Cabernet Sauvignon and brought a few bottles back home. A stunning place and one I will... More

Wow, this place is amazing, especially is you value attention to detail and attentive service. The team is friendly and made me feel right at home from the moment I arrived. From the beautiful, unpretentious decor to the luxury of a bubbling jacuzzi and loggia with a crackling fire, every element plays a role in creating a haven for relaxation.... More

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
