UNCOVER THE SPLENDOUR OF THE FRANSCHHOEK WINELANDS AT GRANDE PROVENCE
November 08, 2018
There are certain evergreen destinations throughout South Africa that are so innately beautiful, interesting and inspiring that it appeals to almost every single couple, family and group of friends. Grande Provence
in the Franschhoek valley of the Western Cape is one of these rare attractions.
Established in 1694, this wine farm sprawls over 47 lush acres that overlook the gorgeous valley and mountains below and beyond. The estate is known for producing exceptional wines, which can be sampled on a day trip, or enjoyed alongside a lingering lunch or dinner at The Restaurant
at Grande Provence, which is open 7 days a week.
Enjoy award-winning cuisine in a decidedly chic environment and take a stroll through the beautiful lush green sculpture gardens afterwards - what better way to spend a weekday or weekend afternoon?
Better yet - stay over! Accommodation is provided in The Owner's Cottage and La Provençale Villa in the vineyards. The former features 5 rooms, which may be booked individually or in its entirety for a group; the latter sleeps four, and the nightly rate includes exclusive use of the villa.
These gorgeous accommodation venues
feature everything you need for a stunning B&B stay, and provide the perfect base from which to explore the rest of the Franschhoek valley.
Naturally, Grande Provence
is also the ideal place to host a wedding, birthday or corporate retreat. The beautiful environment is tailormade for special events of all shapes and sizes. Guests are also invited to take advantage of various package deals during their visit. This includes value-for-money offerings on accommodation, food & wine experiences and more that have been tailored especially for gourmets, wine lovers, family getaways and romantic stays.
This is literally just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to all the wonderful experiences visitors can enjoy at Grande Provence
. For more information regarding wine tasting, dining experiences, accommodation options and more, visit their beautiful website, or get in touch with their reservations team directly.
