We arrived at Orange-Ville on the eve of my birthday to camp and were the only people on the campsite. The owner was very gracious and invited us to charge our devices and connect to their wifi at one of the charge ports that are situated all over the grounds. The camps site is well equipped with braai bins that also have grills with a beautiful view of Franschhoek and Stellenbosch mountain ranges on either side. We spent 2 nights on the property and I must say that the experienced is unmatched. I got to wonder around the property with my dog while my partner recovered from the days drive. We swam in both the exquisite well-preserved swimming pools and walked barefoot as the entire property as its lavished in soft grass and beautiful flower arrangements. I imagine there must 50 types of pretty flowers and trees to inhale and bask in. At night, even though it was well over 30 degrees celsius they arranged us their special hot tub experience, which for an extra few hundred rands, comes with a bottle of MCC from the local vineyard. At sunrise, we woke up to the neighing of horses as the farm lies adjacent to a stable. Since we had a rooftop tent, we watched as the young equestrians practiced their sequences. The grounds are so lush and tranquille, that each morning we logged onto the internet and did yoga practices up until loadshedding, which I'm afraid can't be helped. A mere 10-metres away are there bathrooms which are lavish beyond belief for a campsite. My only tip, which is something one has to always be weary about the bush is: make sure that you have a powerful mosquito and insect repellent as the bugs will come after you. Either than that; This truly has been one of the more special glamping experiences we've had in a minute.

The guest rooms are set in a row in a cottage at the end of the garden with each room having it's own private patio. The garden was so lush we could not see the main house. It was so quiet and we saw little of the other guests until breakfast. The excellent continental breakfast was served outside with a view of the mountains. Hardy and Stephanie gave us many helpful suggestions and tips which added to our enjoyment of the area

The most ideal and private setting surrounded by abundance of trees, beautiful gardens, horse paddocks surround the property, the most spacious and comfortable rooms with well equipped kitchenette and unbelievable wifi and techno gadgets.
The hosts Hardie & Steffi are unbelievable - from the most delicious breakfast to any advice you may need. The location was just awesome - flip to Franschoek and Stellenbosch in a few minutes. Should you be a hiking, walking or biking enthusiast, the pristine Banhoek reserve at the foot of the mountains is sublime! Thank you so much!

A group of friends all came together in the Stellenbosch region to celebrate a wedding and a bunch of us stayed at Orange-Ville. Hardy and his family were such wonderful proprietors, and really made sure we had great tips for what to do on our limited schedule, so not to miss out on the incredible wine country, food, and hospitality of the area. It was a visit we’ll remember a lifetime, and we’re so grateful for his kind hosting. Also, don’t miss breakfast, it’s wonderful! We loved a dip in each of the pools!

The setting is like being in heaven. Surrounded by mountains/trees/big open space. The owner has made swing beds and canopy beds to lounge around the property/pools staring at the mountains. Little squirrels run up and down the garden playing while bird life is abundant. This place is so close to the wine farms and across the main road is the most amazing berry farm to sit on the deck gorging mulberries/blueberries etc.
Such a treat . 8 minute drive into stellenbosch. Definitely a place to rest your soul in 2022.

Underneath the picturesque Heart mountain sit these gorgeous little country lodges. Two beautiful swimming pools and BBQ areas this is a great self-catering option right in the middle of Franschoek and Stellenbosch for easy access to both. Lovely breakfast included. It’s so peaceful here in The Valley of the mountains and at night the stars are unbelievable. This is the second time we have stayed here and we highly recommend it.

I have a great stay in December while attending a family wedding. The room was immaculate, the host was very helpful, friendly and always available. Breakfast was prepared fresh by the host and family, and was delicious. Hard to find a better place especially at the reasonable room rates!

Great location, really pleasant and clean rooms, gorgeous gardens, but the thing that makes this such a good place to stay are Hardi & Steffi, the owners. You do not get handed over to staff to look after you. They are hands on, incredibly helpful and generous with their time and advice on the surrounding places of interest. This is the second time this year we visited Orange-Ville and will most definitely see them again soon..

A lovely, well run guest house. We were made to feel very welcome and our hosts gave very good advice for day trips. The only slight negative was the loud music which came from a neighboring property

A lovely, relaxing stay. A well run guest house. We were made to feel very welcome and our hosts gave good advice for day trips. The only negative was the loud music being played at a neighboring premises. Will certainly come back.
