Wander off to a hidden world
Discover old-world charm that invites you to curl up with a book in the summer house or in front of a roaring fire in winter….Set against the vineyard backdrop of heritage-rich Stellenbosch. We invite you to reminisce and be reminded of life’s simple pleasures…where time stands still and life is celebrated surrounded by space, art, and the grandeur of a long forgotten era. The elegant Sir Herbert Baker-style manor house is surrounded by 500 rose bushes, lavender fields and the tranquillity of rolling lawns extending to the dam with an eco-pool…feel what it’s like to swim in nature again.
Here it’s all about you and your family
Enjoy a chilled glass of wine on the pizza deck, while your kids explore their newfound freedom, as they forget about screens for a while. There’s a secret hideaway with tree walks, a zipline across the dam for the more adventurous, an oversized wigwam/Teepee tent to fuel their imagination, tortoises and dogs to love and home baked pizza to enjoy….
Relax, Surrounded By Art, Music And Space
Le Grand Jardin embodies living the La Dolce Vita life – lawns that go on forever, shade from the 100 year old trees, and a garden that invites you to escape from the rush of everyday. The villa is designed for play, and pleasure with your family, hidden away in the heart of the picturesque Devon Valley wine region. Relax and enjoy the solitude of a journey’s end never to be forgotten.
From our blog
It may be one of the world’s top wine destinations and a gourmet hotspot, but with plenty of child-friendly wine estates, lots of outdoor activities and less than an hour’s drive from Cape Town, the Cape Winelands is hard to beat as a winter destination for families. We’ve been taking our daughter (now 12) every year since she was born. Here are some of our top picks, where kids can have fun...
Le Jardin It's truly a luxury Prime Location for a lovely relaxed and chilled holiday, along with many wine tasting events around this area.
If it wasn't for our cousin's wedding, we would have never known this place existed. And what a place it is! One of the most beautiful places in Stellies. A must-see.
A Secret Hideaway just outside Stellenbosch. Most amazing garden, loads to do for kids. Amazing staff. Best of all is the Glasshouse.
