“Beautiful accommodation”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

Stayed for 2 nights in the gorgeous cottages on the vineyard. Bags of room and character. Wine tasting is a bonus and very worthwhile. Vrede en Lust is about 15 minutes from Franschhoek and is not well signposted from the main road, so drove past initially. Fantastic pool area and a very chilled atmosphere. Worth a day trip or staying overnight. Could quite happily live here!

Visited numerous wineries on 28 &29th October with my guests from Switzerland and found the service, attention to detail, information, location views and wines to be a most commendable experience. Martinique and her assistants were were simply OUTSTANDING. Looking forward to opening my bottle of Vrede en Lust Malbec. THANK YOU for making our day !

Great venue for a wine tasting session followed by lunch in the open complete with fine water spray to cool you in the summer sun. Excellent food . Live music for Sunday lunch. Booking advised.
