Venue for 50th birthday for group of 15 friends

I am planning a 50th birthday celebration for my husband next year 2014. I have invited a group of family and friends to join us and we are now 15 people travelling from England. We will need 6 double rooms and one triple. The dates for the celebration are arrival on 26 Feb, for 5 nights, departing on 03 Mar

Can anyone suggest a suitable property that could accommodate our group in style. It would need to be serviced accommodation and not self catering and preferably in or close to Franschhoek.

Thank you in anticipation

Deb

Deb, hello!

I know you said no to self-catering, but these villas are fully-serviced, butler-ed and within walking distance of the village. They offer a driver within 5km radius. They will also organise a chef and staff for your 50th special dinner and I'm almost certain that they will offer a negotiable rate for a long stay and exclusive use... Speak to Peggy at La Clé des Montagne. She is super helpful and the villas are remarkable.

What an exciting, wonderful thing to do and thank you for choosing South Africa! Happy planning!

We always stay with $haron @ The Coach House in Franschhoek. She is a great host and they have, I think, 7 rooms which you could maybe book the whole place. Its 5 minutes from the main street which has lots good restaurants.

Hi Deb

i am the "Peggy" Alison referred to in her reply regarding a location for your husband's 50th. La Clé would be a perfect fit for your special occasion. Please do not hesitate to contact me for more details.

Thank you all for your advice. I have now booked the Franschhoek Manor which i know is going to be a great venue.

Thanks again
