The bed was so comfortable, my husband and I honestly had the best night's sleep we have had n years. Elmarie was delightful and has the most infectious laugh. We felt very at home, and well-looked after.

We popped into L'Avenir by chance and am so glad we did. The blind tasting is loads of fun and a great way to test your pallet, the charcuterie and cheese board is SO delicious (those figs...mmmm) and awesome value for money and, the service is attentive, friendly and relaxed. The only thing that ruined the experience were the ludicrous... More

What a very nice place. Very friendly - relaxed. Home cooked breakfast. Their white Chenin Blanc was the best we tasted in any wine tasting. Would we go back? Yes, Yes, and Yes. Very relaxed and private. No views from our room bur the added luxury of total privacy.

We had a couple of great days here. Top location, excellent facilities, beautiful rooms, and very friendly staff. Close to stellenbosch and all the wine farms. Definitely something to go back to in the future!

We stayed in Room 1 which has it's own splash pool. It is spacious and beautiful. On night two I stayed in Room 4. It was smaller and without it's own pool, but it was equally lovely and very well appointed. The linen was lovely and crisp. The mattress very nice. The pillows soft and feathery! There are four rooms... More

After a great Birthday in the winelands, my wife treated me to a night at the L'Avenir guest house. We were warmly welcomed on arrival and showed to our comfortable, well appointed room. The overall feel of the venue was traditional wine region accommodation and the bubbly was superb. After a relaxing sun downer at the pool, we were served... More
