Gooding’s Groves Olive Farm and Guest House in the Franschhoek winelands offers warm hospitality with a personal touch – an ideal four star getaway for couples. Surrounded by towering mountains, vineyards and mature olive trees this restored Cape Victorian manor house lies just three kilometres from the centre of the historical village. 

Here you can relax in the comfort of any one of our eight en-suite guest rooms. The Villa is a self-catering cottage with two en-suite rooms, private garden and swimming pool. The  three Barn Suites situated on the dam are comfortable and spacious with limited self-catering facilities.

The rooms in the Manor House have outside entrances with panoramic views of the Drakenstein and Franschhoek mountains, with the Wemmershoek mountains.

Enter the warm embrace of the lounge, library and reception room with roaring log fire in colder weather. If it’s a cooler more relaxed feel you’re after, folding glass doors open the dining room onto a shaded patio, for the full majesty of our signature view and vineyard, perfectly offset by the ever-changing colours of the craggy peaks of the Franschhoek mountains. 

Gooding’s Groves offers a luxury farm experience, typical of the Franschhoek way of life – a valley of splendid wines and culinary delights. Spectacular vineyards cover the mountain slopes settled over 300 years ago by the French Huguenots, who brought with them an age-old culture and appreciation of fine food and wine.

The atmosphere of this historical village never disappoints – a unique Cape treasure with its abundance of galleries, crafts, art and antique shops. For food lovers, Main Street is legendary for its coffee shops and restaurants. Indeed Franschhoek has become an epicurean retreat where visitors can savour the cuisine of over 30 top class restaurants. 

Less than 45 minutes from South Africa’s mother city, Cape Town, Franschhoek is also the ideal base to explore the Cape winelands.
