Dieu Donne, Stellenbosch is a self catering Boutique Guest House in the Winelands. The farm is high up in the Helderberg mountains, surrounded by vineyards as far as the eye can see. The views are breathtaking in this romantic setting, across to Table Mountain and to the sea on the left. Voted one of SA’s ‘best farm stays’ in the AA awards. Resident owner Michelle Viret and her team provide guests with friendly personal attention.The home has been renovated in French Provincial Style, and each unit has been furnished with guest care and comfort in mind and the attention to detail is superb. The bathrooms in particular are exceptionally good, with large walk-in showers and excellent LED floor lighting detail. The kitchens are well equipped with high quality stylish crockery and utensils. The bed presentation is very attractive and the overall effect is one of stylish luxury and quality.This tranquil setting offers a relaxing stay in the Winelands of the Boland. There is easy access to various wonderful winefarms and restaurants. The environment is safe and secure with guests being able to do long walks around the vineyards – or explore the beauty on a Mountain bike.Dieu

I spent the weekend here in the Cabernet suit. What a beautiful spot! Beautifully decorated and thoughtfully appointed. The unit had ample space for 4 guests, great shower, comfortable beds, WiFi, Dstv (for the sports fans in the group) plenty of fluffy towels, the kitchenette had all that we needed and more in terms of appliances, cutlery, crockery etc. Close to many wonderful restaurants and wine farms, gorgeous views and great outdoor seating. All of this made for an altogether wonderful, relaxing weekend away in the wine lands. I look forward to coming back and will happily recommend to all my family and friends! Thank you Andrew and Michelle.

Wonderful wine, friendly staff and great food. Peaceful and a great place to take a glass and relax and unwind. From the moment we arrived until we toasted our last glass we felt like we were family. Everyone made sure that we had a memorable visit.

If you are looking for a tranquil retreat for a few days break away - you would do well to book in at this exclusive self catering French styled guest house. Situated conveniently on the slopes of the Helderberg and close to all attractions in and around the winelands it is easily accessible for day tripping. The large suites are all pure luxury - with beautiful Persian carpets to give that perfect touch of decadence on the floors and the views over the vineyards towards Cape Town are to die for! The well appointed rooms lack nothing and there is ample parking for guest's convenience. Your hosts are friendly and welcoming too - so helpful for that personal touch. This is a destination you should not miss out on for it's unique style and ambiance!

The room is so lovely. It’s cozy, beautiful, big and warm. It offers comfort to a family. The owners were really kind with our family. The “room” looks like an apartment because is divided in a living room, a kitchen and 2 separate suites. Really nice!

The Dieu Donne self catering accommodation is 5 star from the moment you drive through the gates! The comfort and attention to detail in the unit is really top class! My husband and I had a really special time staying in the Sauvignon unit. Everything was clean and so comfortable. The view of the mountains and vineyards was beautiful and the peace and tranquillity just what we needed. The location is good as it is off the main R44 road, but it is close to the surrounding wine farms and attractions.

Spacious units and wel presented. Just outside Stellenbosch between the vineyards. Great feelling. Self catering unit. You have to do your own dishes and make your beds yourself. Not part of the service. Rooms are not soundproof - you do hear your neighbours standing up and preparing to leave. As well as the television from upstairs.

Response from Andrew S, Owner at Dieu Donne Stellenbosch
Responded 10 Oct 2016
Dear Erik Thank you for staying with us at Dieu Donne Stellenbosch as well as this review. Our apologies for any noise issues - the close proximity of the 2 units does make it difficult from a sound proofing perspective but I will see what can be done about the upstairs television noise. As the units are self catering we only service every 2nd day when towels and mats are also changed, beds made and a general clean up done and I know that this was done on the 3rd day of your stay but I will make sure that guests are specifically are of this in the future. Thanks and regards Andrew and Michelle

In April I spent nearly 3 weeks in one of Dieu Donne's selfcatering units, together with my two children visiting from Bangkok. Never before have I experienced the well known saying of "home away from away" being so true !! Whenever we would be out and about, coming back to Dieu Donne, every time felt like coming HOME . Our unit , Sauvignon, is beautifully appointed with absolutely everything you could need in a selfcatering unit . It has two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a lovely openplan kitchen/living/dining area./ Linnen and kitchen utensils are of good quality. Underfloorheating makes for a wonderful comfy stay in winter. Different than in most hotels or lodges, the good quality tv provided a full bouqet of programs and not the normal resticted few. The tv and remote control were also in surprisingly good condition. Free wifi of good quality is available in all of the unit. The outside patio privide stunning and unrestricted views over the surrounding vineyards, all the way to Table Mountain in Cape Town. The laundry, almost right next to our unit, provides a washing machine, tumbledryer, iron and ironingboard as well as a big basin and all laundry detergents one would need. Dieu Donne's location, high up towards the mountains in in the middle of the Stellenbosc vineyards, makes it feel miles away from any busy city life. Yet it is almost exactly in the middle between the beautiful towns of Stellenbosch and Somerset-West, about 10 mins from each, about half an hour from Cape Town International Airport and 45 mins from Cape town (obviously depending on the time of day and therefore traffic!!) Owner, Andrew, is more than willing to help with anything to make your stay better. For example, he provided us with a Weber to have a braai, overlooking the lovely vineyards. In a few days, my husband and I are going to spend a week there again - surely the best advertisement for any bussiness .

What an excellent location. I loved the interior decoration and the effort that was put into it. It was welcoming and comfortable and it felt luxurious and at the same time relaxing. The best part - it was actually affordable. We only stayed 2 nights, but we will definitely be back. I wished they served breakfast.

We went to Dieu Donne for over two weeks in February this year along with two friends from the UK. We stayed in one of two self-catering apartments run by Andrew and his wife. The apartments are in an ideal location on the slopes up to the Helderberg Mountains overlooking vineyards and with views of both the mountain to the east and across the plain to the west and Table Mountain in the distance. The apartments are nicely decorated in a french style and very clean. Andrew is keen to help and ensure that you have a good break whilst you are there. He knows the area and can advise on destinations and eating places. We left with a heavy heart and hope to be back sometime.

As they say, Dieu Donne is the perfect place to relax and compose yourself in French Provincial style amongst the vineyards before you venture into Stellenbosch and neighbouring regions for wine tasting and enjoying great meals in spectacular locations. Remember to return to Dieu Donne for your sunset views and recharge before your dinner date at a local winery in the foothills of the Helderberg mountain range.
