Before the French Huguenots received farms in what is now Franschhoek, the area was known as Olifantshoek (Elephant Corner) due to the large herds of elephants found there. The French Huguenots proceeded to plant some of the oldest vineyards in South Africa.

The tasteful Loft Rooms offer outstanding views of the Franschhoek Valley, while the delightful Garden Rooms, with direct access to the gardens, look out over the vineyards and orchards. The old wine cellar has been converted into a spacious Honeymoon Suite with a king-size bed, large bath, and double shower. The ceiling of the Honeymoon Suite is hand-painted with scenes of clouds and birds. All these luxurious rooms are equipped with air-conditioning, heated floors, satellite television, minibar fridges, and coffee/tea stations with Nespresso machines.


The guest house serves gourmet country breakfasts in an enchanting courtyard dining area under eighteenth-century oak trees.
