In April I spent nearly 3 weeks in one of Dieu Donne's selfcatering units, together with my two children visiting from Bangkok. Never before have I experienced the well known saying of "home away from away" being so true !! Whenever we would be out and about, coming back to Dieu Donne, every time felt like coming HOME .

What an excellent location. I loved the interior decoration and the effort that was put into it. It was welcoming and comfortable and it felt luxurious and at the same time relaxing. The best part - it was actually affordable. We only stayed 2 nights, but we will definitely be back. I wished they served breakfast.

As they say, Dieu Donne is the perfect place to relax and compose yourself in French Provincial style amongst the vineyards before you venture into Stellenbosch and neighbouring regions for wine tasting and enjoying great meals in spectacular locations.

An elegantly decorated guesthouse for the discerning traveller in an absolutely gorgeous setting. Views of the mountain, vineyards and Cape Town lights at night. Owners Michelle and Andrew very welcoming, respecting privacy yet very accommodating to the needs of their guests. A very quiet, peaceful haven.

Website says "child friendly" bookings.com asks ages of children yet the owner tells guests with children, after they have paid and checked in, that they are not welcome at Dieu Donne as she has Persian carpets!

Lunch at the restaurant was an experience. We had a table by the window over looking the vineyards, the mountains & the valley. Totally breath taking. It was a surreal experience. The food was sublime. The starters were fried calamari, grilled calamari, charcuterie platter, pork belly, Greek salad, pate & tempura langoustines. The latter were particularly scrumptious. Most of the... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Dieu Donne, Stellenbosch is a self catering Boutique Guest House in the Winelands. The farm is high up in the Helderberg mountains, surrounded by vineyards as far as the eye can see. The views are breathtaking in this romantic setting, across to Table Mountain and to the sea on the left. Voted one of SA’s ‘best farm stays’ in the AA awards. Resident owner Michelle Viret and her team provide guests with friendly personal attention.The home has been renovated in French Provincial Style, and each unit has been furnished with guest care and comfort in mind and the attention to detail is superb. The bathrooms in particular are exceptionally good, with large walk-in showers and excellent LED floor lighting detail. The kitchens are well equipped with high quality stylish crockery and utensils. The bed presentation is very attractive and the overall effect is one of stylish luxury and quality.This tranquil setting offers a relaxing stay in the Winelands of the Boland. There is easy access to various wonderful winefarms and restaurants. The environment is safe and secure with guests being able to do long walks around the vineyards – or explore the beauty on a Mountain bike.Dieu ... more   less
