When it comes to finding an exclusive getaway in Franschhoek, with creature comforts best described as world class, one would certainly struggle to find anywhere that could rival the grace and beauty that is Lavender Farm Guest House.
Situated a mere 1.3 km from the village centre and encapsulated by a 3 hectare purple lavender fields and mountains that just seem to extend as far as the eye can see, Lavender Farm boasts the honour of being the only guest house on a lavender farm in Franschhoek.
After a hard day of sight seeing, wine tasting, exploring, lying by the pool or just shopping in the village, what better way to end the day than to retire to the comfort of your luxurious room.
The Luxury Suites flank the farm's inner manicured green lawn area. These suites are spacious and each one has its own outdoor pergola-styled verandah of grape vines and wisteria. The Luxury View Suites have a private verandah overlooking the lavender field and mountains where you can enjoy a hot cup of morning coffee before coming up to the dining area for a hearty breakfast or sip a relaxing glass of wine in the evening.
The Manor Rooms have a large patio which opens up onto the pool area.
The Honeymoon Suites have a private patio and garden with stunning views - ideal for settling down with a bottle of wine from your mini bar and enjoy the romantic sunsets.
