Welcome to Gooding's Groves

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.

There are two spacious barn suites (Barn Suite 1 = + 41m² and Barn Suite 3 = + 33m²) on the edge of the dam, each with semi self-catering facilities, comfortable lounge- and dining area, well-equipped kitchen counter, shower room and verandas with braai amenities and equally picturesque views. These suites are not star graded.

For complete privacy, the free-standing Provençal–style Villa can be booked. Here you have sole access to a private and enclosed garden, plunge pool, two en-suite bedrooms, spacious lounge, dining and TV areas, well-appointed kitchen, and French doors opening on to a north-facing enclosed veranda.

In the morning, a scrumptious breakfast of your choosing can be savoured in the manor house´s large and tastefully appointed dining room.

Upon arrival, all guests are treated to a taste of our olive products with a glass of wine. Olive tastings - by appointment only.
