For most of us, winter is a time to hibernate at home, it doesn’t always have to be that way. You can still enjoy some amazing getaway for you and your family, one such escape is the two-day private family retreat in the Franschhoek at La Provençale. The secluded hideaway at this landmark Heritage Wine Estate offers wonderful value and a host of activities that parents and children can do together.

La Provençale is an idyllic weekend or holiday destination for small groups. It’s located in the vineyards. Guests are accommodated in style with two en suite bedrooms, separated for privacy by a shared lounge leading onto a relaxing outdoor terrace and pool. Surrounded by hibernating vines and sweeping views this is the quintessential private getaway.

The La Provençale experience includes breakfast and dinner with exciting activities, including a French-style picnic lunch beside the vines, weather permitting, and a ride on the hop-on, hop-off, Franschhoek Wine Tram to discover this French-inspired valley. 

You can explore the variety of elegant wines paired with canapés during A Taste of Grande Provence, while the children enjoy a grape juice version. For a special treat, guests are spoilt with delicious Shiraz truffles crafted on the estate.
