Allow yourself to be spoilt by true South African hospitality at Francines Venue and Farmhouse
Situated on a working citrus farm close to the town of Hoedspruit in the lovely Lowveld region of Limpopo. The venue and accommodation are placed between the most beautiful citrus orchards and has the majestic Drakensberg mountain as its back drop.
The property is situated in close proximity to many tourist attractions such as the famous Panorama Route and Kruger National Park.
Each of the 9 rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated. They all offer an en suite bathroom with shower only, queen size bed, a bar fridge, air-conditioning, tea and coffee station and an outside seating area with views over the manicured gardens.
Breakfast is served in the breakfast room with large verandah which looks over the beautiful rose gardens. Breakfast consists of a continental buffet, as well as hot breakfasts to order. Our preserves are made here on site and are a must try.
The wedding and reception venues are in close vicinity of each other on the same farm and can accommodate anything from small groups to a maximum of 200 guests.
We strive to offer a one-stop wedding experience. Our tariffs are very affordable but don’t be mislead by this - we always pride ourselves on our excellent quality of food as well as service with a personal touch. We will style our food and décor to any theme you choose.
