X-Factor: This is the Cape winelands lifestyle at its best: oodles of space for families, ever-changing mountain views that stretch forever and an abundance of fruit, wine and locally grown produce – including the best beef in the world, of course. We're talking about Brenaissance, and its beautiful Manor House up the Devon Valley. Set on a hilltop, and literally ten minutes from historic Stellenbosch, it's a superb base for anyone booking for Woordfees or Garden Town - or a complete escape for couples who want to enjoy a sophisticated but relaxed trip together.
Why book with us? Brenaissance Manor House is available exclusively to Art House Collection and their guests.
X-Factor: If South Africa’s Stellenbosch Winelands are hailed as the ‘Kingdom of Cabernet’, then the slopes of the Helderberg are surely its royal court. Here, surrounded by vineyards renowned for producing some of South Africa’s most iconic Bordeaux-style reds, are three new places to stay: there are two modern villas and the recently refurbished five-bedroom historic manor house, dating to 1838. Surrounded by endless lawn (loved by kids) and with magnificent mountain views from the wide stoep shaded by stately oak trees, the manor house is at the heart of this working wine farm and just a short walk from the modern cellar.
Why book with us? We’re uniquely placed to curate art experiences in the Winelands: email email@example.com to find out more!
X-Factor: On the hillside above, Views Forever does just what it promises: gives you panoramic views right across the Cape Winelands to both oceans, Table Mountain and Cape Point - never mind the mountain peaks behind. It's quite possibly the best view to book right now... Ideally suited to multi-gen gatherings or a getaway with friends in all seasons: the contemporary interiors include two fireplaces (one in the kitchen) and the poolside pizza oven, all of which lend themselves perfectly to convivial gatherings.
Why book with us? All of our properties are personally selected by our team: speak to us if you're booking a multigenerational trip with family as we can help you combine properties so that you're all close together.
X-Factor: Hidden in the cleft of a valley between the vineyards, the sun-filled Olive Garden Villa is, by contrast, a contemporary country escape with a central hearth for winter warmth. It has superb views of the Helderberg peaks over the olive trees and pool. It’s also close to the five bedroomed Manor House and so its an ideal weekend escape for four or you can book both for friends. Most families love the fact that this is a fully working farm. Butler service and breakfast included too!
Why book with us? We've explored these hidden valleys and know the area well, so can offer hands-on advice on the area if you're a first-time visitor to our Winelands.
X-Factor: Summer roses bloom abundantly here, and shafts of late afternoon sunlight create magic in this garden that's full of surprises at every turn. The country air is always gloriously redolent with the comforting smell of woodsmoke, and life here is celebrated fully. The decor is one-of-a-kind, an artwork in itself: from the handpainted wallpaper by African Sketchbook to the magnificent handcrafted copper wall leading in the plush velvet lounge, and the characterful pub with its literary quotes embossed on the leather walls. An old-world garden awaits with its delightful carousel, gypsy caravan and glasshouse – heaven for kids who'll no doubt want to stay here while you explore the town and its galleries!
Why book with us? Because we know you'll love this spot! We also have other beautiful homes in this valley if you're here for a wedding or special occasion...
