At Le Grand Jardin, all paths – and there are many – lead to pleasure. Ensconced in the Winelands’ Devon Valley, with a five-hectare garden all to yourself, this lavish, family-friendly villa is like nothing you’ve experienced before. How many holiday homes do you know of that have a life-sized Tintin rocket in the kids’
bedroom, a chandelier strung up over a giant-lily-pad pond, and a jetty with a rowing boat? How about a zipline over a dam, a teepee and gypsy caravan, a vintage 1940s carousel, an alfresco steam room built into a rock and a jacuzzi under ancient oaks? The list goes on. 

Part pleasure dome, part regal retreat, this Herbert Baker-style home is one of those rare properties that appeal to adventure-seeking four-year-olds and 40-year-old style savants alike! Sleeps 15 in six rooms (three in the
Manor House, three in the Pool Pavilion); one is a family suite. A private chef comes at an additional cost.
