Wine, Cheese, Bread & Olives go hand & hand to me. Thus this was the perfect place to stay at. The Guest house is perfectly situated just outside of Franschoek, and right next to the La Motte wine estate - which sets the benchmark for wine tasting experiences! The Guest house is beautifully decorated, rooms are spacious & comfortable - which worked perfectly for us traveling with a toddler! The manager of the guest house, Mareaze is a gracious hostess who went out of her way to make sure we experienced the perfect "homely" experience on the olive farm. Even offering to take our toddler off our hands for 30 min to go feed the chickens! 30 min to mom & dad to relax is priceless!!! They also grow & bottle their own olives, and as someone who really enjoys eating & tasting different olives, these were DELICIOUS! We definately wont hesitate recommending this place to anyone traveling thru Franschoek!
