HISTORIC CAPE DUTCH HOMESTEAD

Franschhoek Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Magnificent Historic Cape Dutch Homestead in heart of wine country

Lekkerwijn sleeps up to 12 adults comfortably. This Historic Cape Dutch Homestead was the home of a founder of the Cape Export Fruit Industry and is full of his Cape Antique collection. The Old homestead was built in the 1700's and there is a bedroom wing addition designed by Sir Herbert Baker, making a protected courtyard in the middle of the house. There are 7 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms (4 en-suite). 3 sitting rooms, large dinning room and children's playroom. The property is staffed and breakfast is included in the rate. A staff member will be on hand in the kitchen to help with food prepartion. Bedrooms and bathrooms are serviced.

Large grounds and gardens surround the homestead with 100 year old trees. Swimming pool. Numerous miniature animals to entertain kids (and adults!) including miniature Transkei pigs, dwarf goats and rabbits. We have a driver that can be made available to take guests to and from local restaurants, wineries and the airport. Trained Baby sitter available.

Lekkerwijn can accommodate more than 12 people staying, but this needs to be negotiated with the owners. Lekkerwijn is furnished to a high standard, having earned 4 stars from the Tourism grading council of South Africa.

Lekkerwijn is in the heart of the historic Cape wine country close to Franschhoek and 15 minutes drive to Stellenbosch and Paarl. Walk to our 3 neighbouring wineries (Boschendal, Allee Bleue and Solms Delta) all of which have great restaurants, picnics and wine tasting. We are 10-15 minutes drive from a number of the top restaurants in the country, as well as the most historic towns/villages in the country (Franschhoek, Stellenbosch and Paarl), which all have museums, art galleries, gardens and houses of historic interest. Literally 100's of wineries surround us offerring wine tasting and great restaurants, gardens and art/culpture.

Lekkerwijn stables horses and riding is available next door at Delta Crest riding estate. Cycling is very popular in the area, both over the pass to stellebosch and up the valley to Franschhoek. Numerous gold courses are close by inclduing Pearl valley, Paarl & Boschenmeer, Devonvale, Stellendrift and Kleine Zalze.

Magnificent mountains all around with great views and hikes.

We have an information available on all local sites and activities of interest.

Lekkerwijn is only 45 minutes drive from Cape Town, making it a good base to make day trips into cape Town if wanted. Many inland villages, winelands and sites are also within easy reach.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We were made most welcome at Lekkerwijn - this was just so relaxing - really comfortable rooms, excellent breakfasts and a most welcome plunge pool. The position is perfect for the food and wine of Franschoek and we would recommend this property to anyone. It was lovely to have a dog to cuddle and tortoises and peacocks to admire. It was also brilliant that Geoff was kind enough to make our restaurant bookings for us.
