Franschhoek Wine Valley

The Conservatory

In a world driven by commerce, materialism and uncertainty, where passion is so often replaced by necessity, there is a destination, which enables one to transcend these boundaries.

The Conservatory offers a space in which you and your guests may elude suburbia and the city, and come and relax out in the country. Nestled on the banks of the Kastaiing River, The Conservatory is set amongst vineyards and ancient oaks , presenting an absolute hidden gem for any event of your choice.

Our philosophy is simple yet stylish, inspiring but functional and versatile, catering to discerning clientele who require a blank canvas to create a unique event that transforms a space into a true reflection of themselves. The Conservatory in the Franschhoek Wine Valley is the perfect blank canvas for any event including: weddings, product launches, corporate team building and conferences, exclusive executive meetings and film and still shoots.

Using light and energy as key components at our facilities, a free flow of indoor/outdoor harmony is created. All year round, vast expanses of glass allow our guests the opportunity to fully appreciate the picturesque views that Franschhoek and the beauty of the surroundings has to offer.

During the sunny summer months, guests are able to enjoy the superlative South African weather by combining the experience of the outdoors with all the assurances of indoor conveniences. During winter, all the elements of this season can be appreciated from the inside looking out. Whilst rain pelts down and snow capped mountains peep through the clouds, guests can relax next to large fireplaces and enjoy the splendour of it all.

Our facilities are set on spacious grounds and surrounded by a majestic backdrop of the Franschhoek mountains, providing a private and tranquil setting for all to enjoy – ideal for photographs and wonderful memories.

A spacious and luxurious Villa is also available to our guests who seek private and exclusive accommodation.
