Val du Charron Wine and Olive Estate, 4 & 5 Star Guesthouse and Spa is located on a working farm in the heart of the Bovlei valley ten minutes from the town of Wellington and less than an hour's drive from Cape Town - the perfect accommodation spot in the heart of the Cape Winelands, South Africa.
The original farm at Val du Charron was proclaimed in 1699 and, as only the fifth family to hold title, the owners are conscious to maintain its historic integrity and re-establish the tradition of wine making on the farm itself. This can be evidenced in the rehabilitation of the historic buildings and the character of the architecture of the Estate.
The 4 star Guesthouse comprises eight luxurious suites each with stunning views from their private balconies or gardens over the vineyards of the Hawekwa mountains. Seven of the suites are doubles and the eighth can serve as a spacious family room accommodating four people. Each room has an en-suite bathroom with shower. Guests can enjoy a healthy breakfast or full farmer's breakfast served in the dining area which integrates with the wine tasting facility and allows guests to access the working cellar during the day.
The 5 star Coach House is a boutique Winelands getaway for the discerning guest who values their privacy. Consisting of only three spacious suites, each with its own plunge pool and private patio with built in wood burning fireplace, guests can unwind in their own space overlooking the majestic Winelands and mountains. Each of the three queen size rooms is en-suite with bathrooms containing spa baths and a shower for two. Stunning design elements, such as natural stone flooring that flows from the pool through the rooms and the breathtaking stained glass window features, integrate with the rooms' modern comforts such as complimentary mini bar, free wifi and smart cable TV.
