The only question to contemplate is: country-house comfort or manor house panache?
Basse Provence Country House
Built in 1885, this historic Cape Dutch country house is situated across the Franschhoek river on Rickety Bridge’s neighbouring sister estate – offering a private sanctuary from the daytime activities. With just seven en-suite rooms, all kitted with air-conditioning, select DStv channels, minibars, tea and coffee facilities, hairdryers, irons and ironing boards and free wi-fi, not to mention majestic views of the vineyards and towering mountains, Basse Provence is certainly a winning choice.
Cost R1 960 (includes one night’s accommodation, breakfast, wine-tasting, complimentary starter with every main meal ordered during lunch, a bottle of wine, and 10% off any wine sales for two)
Rickety Bridge Manor House
Built in the 19th century, this stylishly renovated Cape Dutch manor has all the character of a historic home – from classic furniture and high wood-beamed ceilings, to a large country kitchen and cosy lounge (complete with a warming fireplace). Yet it still provides guests the feeling of being somewhere special. In addition to the beautiful tasting room – where visitors can sample a selection of estate wines – The Rickety Bridge Manor House is home to three en-suite rooms that offer the ultimate comfort throughout your stay.
Cost R2 500 (includes one night’s’ accommodation, breakfast, wine-tasting, complimentary starter with every main meal ordered during lunch, a bottle of wine, and 10% off any wine sales for two)
