Basse Provence is situated on an historical working wine farm in the picturesque valley of Franschhoek close to the local facilities and superb restaurants of the town.

This landmark Cape Dutch manor sits invitingly amongst the vines and 300 year old oak trees. The interior is a fine blend of traditional Huguenot heritage and South African culture.

The Manor House

The house has three bedrooms, two en-suite open plan bathrooms and a third bathroom all of which are on the upper floor with breathtaking views of the surrounding vineyards and mountains.

Bedrooms are on the first floor and have breathtaking views of the surrounding vineyards and mountains.

All the bedrooms are available on a bed and breakfast basis in either twin or double and are beautifully furnished

You have a spacious dining room with an antique yellow wood dining table seating twelve people, a lounge with a large fireplace, a kitchen fitted with a fireplace as well as all the latest equipment to make preparing meals a pleasure and a garden / patio area under umbrellas with a barbeque area.

Your comfort is catered for on every level. All the bedrooms have DSTV television, with two of the bedrooms cooled by air conditioners.

The master bathroom has under floor heating for those chilly winter nights.

A swimming pool is available for those hot summer afternoons. Should you wish to spend a relaxing day on the farm, we have croquet on the front lawn, boules under the oak trees and a walk down to the river to a picnic site on the riverbank.

The Country House

The country house consists of 4 bedrooms - two upstairs, The Jacob Room and The Elizabeth Room (which is the honeymoon suite) and two downstairs, The Gideon and Paulina Rooms.

Every room has en-suite bathrooms and separate showers. The views from all the rooms are simply stunning and look out onto the vineyards and the Franschhoek valley.

Full English breakfasts are served in the dining room overlooking the pool and vineyard.

Latest Reviews
We had a very nice stay at Basse Provence. The manor house is charming and well-maintained, and the service could not have been friendlier. My only qualifying comment would be that Manor Room 2 has a fan only, which was noted on the booking page, but which we failed to take into account and really regretted. We definitely would book one of the A/C rooms if we return.

The room we had was outstanding (although a couple of light bulbs were not working), and the staff very friendly. We would recommend it to others as very good value for money.
