That was my second visit to Vrede en Lust winery. I just love this place, stunning view, cozy, nice decor and great wines. Friendly staff. Worth to stop by just to appreciate the view, have a wine tasting or a lunch !!! Very nice smell of freshly baked bread coming from the restaurant when you park your car, wonderful!

We spent two nights at Vrede en Lust during a week long tour of Cape Town. We stayed in one of their Vineyard Suites, which had spectacular views of both the vineyards and mountains, and was modern and stylishly furnished. The service at the estate was fantastic, and we thoroughly enjoyed the wine and Lindt Chocolate tasting that was on... More

This has to be my favourite wine estate in the Wine lands. The most spectacular wines, stunning food and the ultimate view... You will fall inlove with the country side the moment you set foot into the estate. The service was excellent and they took great care of my younger brother. This is a MUST visit when you are in...

Was here for one night for a wedding staying in the manor house. Very beautiful. Nice wines, good spot for lunch or a coffee as well. Great views from the winery. Worth a stop off for sure on a wine trail, or to stay for the night.

This is one of the most beautiful places I have been in Franschhoek. The staff were helpful and friendly. The rooms amazing and spacious. The food is divine (definitely try the brownies) and the view is gorgeous. I would not trade my wedding location for anywhere else in the world.

We stayed for three nights for a family wedding. It's beautiful. We stayed in the modern rooms which had a small terrace and bifold doors opening onto a view of the vineyard and the mountains beyond. Other friends and family stayed in the main, older part of the building which was also beautiful. The food was wonderful, whether it was... More

My wife and I were spending two nights in a chalet, which forms part of the traditional buildings of the impressive estate. Our stay was prepared perfectly by Annalize, who booked for us also the restaurants (thanks again for it!). The chalet was very clean and nicely furnished also with a very comfortable bed. The breakfast was excellent, served at... More
