A luxurious winelands escape

If you’re looking for a swish, intimate destination, we’ve found it for you. (It’s a pleasure)

A stay at La Petite Ferme – a top notch wine estate on the slopes of the Oliphants Pass and Middagkrans Mountain Range and overlooking the Franschhoek Valley – is a real treat.

With views forever, luxurious accommodation, and award-winning food and wines, you’d be clever to book this for a weekend or so these hols. Five beautifully appointed vineyard suites and five recently renovated Manor House suites (each with spectacular views, some with private terrace with built in daybeds and dedicated sun lounge pockets on which to relax and savour the view) … it would be easy to just settle down with a good book and a glass of wine. But a girl’s got to eat … and there’s a spectacular (and award-winning) restaurant which serves country cuisine with a fresh contemporary touch.

In addition, La Petite Ferme’s small and intimate boutique style cellar, managed by winemaker Wikus Pretorius, offers a full range of wines which includes red, white, rosé and Method Cap Classique. There the obvious wine tastings (must do), and for the energetic, half and full day Bike Adventures. More hedonistic? Book the Mobile Beauty Spa that brings the Spa experience directly to you. Or just lie around the pool, getting up only for a brief dip. Jolly romantic, close to the winelands and tourist attractions, is conveniently located less than three minutes from the pretty village of Franschhoek.
