This was our third Christmas at Grande Provence and we were expecting great things. Sadly, our hopes did not materialise. Money had been taken from our credit card quite early on (and quite a substantial amount) but our email with the card details was never acknowledged so we weren't quite sure what the amount included. Previously, it had included a... More

Beautiful place to have dinner. The food was faultless. Service was very disappointing. Waiters talking all the time to each other, no one in charge, asked for wine list for dessert wines twice but did not appear, finally had to ask for the bill 3 times! The hurricane lights on the tables look great but the paraffin smell not good.... More

This is a place for a beautiful experience of all the senses. The whole estate oozes of its and South Arica´s historical roots, my advice is to take good time to roam the grounds, the artwork and the surroundings. I even managed to find a private spot and meditate in this magnificent environment! To me the most impressive thing was... More

This is an absolutely stunning place. The art work ever present in the garden adds a touch of glamour to this already classy place. We ate outside and enjoyed very good service, excellent food and generally a great time. When the sun goes down, the lighting around the property adds to the charm. Inside, the dining area is sumptuous and... More

The ambience of this place is wonderful and the estate itself fascinating, but I found the wine disappointing. The food was excellent. The artwork on the state is well worth a visit.
