A charming guest house and working olive farm a mere three kilometres from enchanting Franschhoek, Gooding´s Groves offers couples the ideal Winelands stay and an excellent base from which to explore the area. Expect top-drawer hospitality, complemented by a warm personal touch and understated four-star luxury surroundings.
The Cape Victorian-style manor house boasts elegant north- and south-facing verandas that present views of sprawling olive groves, vineyards and the surrounding mountains. Cool off in the beautiful pool or enjoy a picnic on the lush grass around the pond.
The four star manor house has eight luxury rooms, all with en-suite shower rooms and exquisite mountain views.
