Topiary Vineyard Cottages

Feel the pull of the vineyards and stay on working wine farm in the stunning Franschhoek valley, the food and wine capital of South Africa.

Topiary Winery has recently renovated stunning guest cottages which are the perfect base for exploring everything the Cape has to offer. Each luxurious cottage comes equipped with a spacious bedroom with a king size bed. Adjoining the bedrooms is a modern en-suite bathroom with a bath and shower. Each cottage also has a fully stocked kitchenette for preparing meals if you prefer the privacy of cooking yourself. There is also a stunning sun deck with some of the best views in the valley over our vineyards. For those who love to cook on fire your sun deck also has a braai which we will keep supplied with firewood to ensure your fire stay crackling.
