This beautiful farm in the foothills of the Du Toits Kloof mountains dates back to 1692. Graded 4 stars by the South African Tourism Grading Council the 9 bedroom boutique hotel won Best Value and Top Accommodation awards in 2016 and 2017.
The comfortable and commodious interior is a passionate blend of Cape Dutch buildings and modern conveniences in a scenic setting just 8 km outside Paarl town. The bedrooms are all very spacious, and with its luxurious ambiance and period furnishings it clearly conveys the owner's understanding of a sophisticated lifestyle, without sacrifying that homely feel and comfort, all in a "farm" like atmosphere.
Catering mostly to the corporate market, and in season to the international and local holiday traveler market, the hotel enjoys high occupancy levels. Rooms all have mini bars, TV with DStv, WiFi, airconditioning and sumptuous en suite bathrooms, some with a shower ánd bath tub. Once you sink into the crisp white cotton linen you will not want to leave.
In summer guests can enjoy the sparkling pool around the braai and pizza oven and covered patio area while they gaze upon the towering mountains to the east. In winter relax around the capacious lounge with fireplace, sipping glühwein, while Napoleon looks down on you approvingly. Or maybe forlornly?
With a few clever alterations the +- 180m² barn can be converted into a cosy wedding venue to take advantage of Paarl's lucrative "wedding season" market between September and March. Corporate and other event venues are in high demand throughout the year. A comprehensive Historical Impact Assessment document, with building plans for a cellar and production facility is available for perusal.
The land surrounding the homestead is planted to shiraz, chenin blanc, pinotage and cabernet sauvignon vineyards, which is supplied to Boland Cellar on a quota/shareholder agreement. The balance of the available land is planted to guava trees. Domestic use water is from a borehole and irrigation water from the large earth dam filled by rain water.
The farm is sold as a going concern and thus includes all antique furniture and fittings. Six staff cottages across the road can be converted into additional rental units if you prefer your staff to live off site. One of the 9 bedrooms of the main homestead is in fact a fully self contained flatlet, perfect for an on site live in manager. Please call for an appointment to view this Winelands gem.
