Romancing the vine.
Near a tree, by a river, there’s a cottage in the woods. Well, there are five cottages, actually and they’re surrounding vineyards and a pear orchard and the majestic Franschhoek Mountains in the distance.
Owned by the Parkfelt family, the original workers’ quarters and stables have been carefully renovated and turned into monastic – and utterly stylish – self-catering cottages. Set among fruit groves and herb gardens, the property offers a slew of scenic walks and an intimate environment in which to unwind.
Couples can choose to stay in one of three romantic one-bedroom cottages – the Scandi-chic Blanc or Noir or the recently renovated Chestnut cottage – all of which have their own private plunge pools and outdoor patios and views to die for.
From now until end-August 2021, couples can enjoy 40% off midweek stays in one of the three one-bedroom cottages (and 25% off on the weekend).
Cost R2 040 per couple per night (Chestnut, midweek)
R2 160 per couple per night (Blanc + Noir, midweek)
R 2 550 per couple per night (Chestnut, weekend)
R2 700 per couple per night (Blanc + Noir, weekend)
The details Each cottage has one bedroom, sleeping 2 guests in total.
Valid until 31 August 2021
