This popular Franschhoek estate is offering an exciting special, complete with breakfast, wine-tastings, and more.
Perched on the slopes of the Franschhoek Mountains with sweeping views of the valley beyond, Rickety Bridge Winery is a popular destination for travellers seeking a true Franschhoek wine-farm experience.
Home to two grand guesthouses, it’s also a favoured Winelands location for those looking to spend the night in country comfort, making it the perfect place to enjoy a scenic escape with your plus one.
Rickety Bridge is currently offering 10% off a night’s stay for two at the four-star Basse Provence Country House, where guests will be treated to a cheese platter and wine on arrival, a premium wine-tasting, discounted rates on lunch and wine purchases, and a full breakfast in the morning.
Built in 1885, the Cape Dutch country house is located across the Franschhoek River on Rickety Bridge’s sister estate – offering a private sanctuary from the daytime activities.
With just seven en-suite rooms (all kitted out with air-conditioning, select DStv channels, minibars, tea and coffee facilities, hairdryers, irons and ironing boards and free wifi) not to mention majestic vineyard and mountain views, Basse Provence provides guests with the feeling of being somewhere special.
In addition to the beautiful tasting room – where you’ll be treated to a premium wine-tasting experience – the winery is home to Paulina’s restaurant where you can enjoy bistro-style meals with a modern twist.
Overlooking rolling vineyards and mountains beyond, the eatery offers an extensive lunch menu including calamari salad, gnocchi, salmon roulade, beef carpaccio, butter chicken, pork belly and deconstructed mushroom lasagne, with desserts of baked cheesecake, brownie and panna cotta, to name a few.
Simply book your stay before end-October 2020 to experience the true allure of this Franschhoek escape.
