Overview of The Owner’s Cottage at Grande Provence

Resting below the Franschhoek mountains in arguably the Cape’s most beautiful wine region, The Owner’s Cottage at Grande Provence basks in the sun on the 325-year-old Grande Provence Estate. Surrounded by vineyards, this traditional Cape Dutch-style villa is nothing less than a testament to graceful living.

The Owners Cottage with its 5-star grading offers luxurious and private en-suite accommodation for a maximum of 14 guests, within a charming complex of historically significant Cape Dutch buildings. The manicured gardens boast a private swimming pool and a secluded patio deck overlooking the vineyards. A beautifully appointed loggia and entertainment area adjacent to the pool is perfect for relaxing. The Cottage can either be reserved for exclusive use by one guest or sharing with others on a Bed and Breakfast, multiple booking basis.

Explore this quaint valley near Cape Town with a visit to Franschhoek – which means ‘French corner’ – to enjoy the decadent delights of South Africa’s gourmet capital and savour some of the country’s finest vintages. And the Mother City little more than an hour’s drive away, this luxury accommodation makes an ideal combination with a Cape Town and Whale Coast holiday.
