I had a wonderful stay at Vrede en Lust, everything was on point. The guest house (Pinotage Room) had everything you need. The views were excellent as you overlooked the vineyards with the mountain in the back drop. The conference centre is a must for groups of 10 to 25 people. See you again

What hospitable staff. From the events /food planned for the Friday evening, right through pre-drinks the Saturday afternoon, the set up for the wedding ceremony the Saturday afternoon, through to the reception, the decor, the food. Too much to mention. Everything was professionally done. The food was well prepared, presented and was excellent. The decor, the staff were there, without being obtrusive, yet always available to assist with a smile. The wide selection of what was on offer for breakfast also deserves a 15/10. Well done, will definitely recommend the venue. The tranquility of the surrounding just added to an atmosphere of peace. A huge thank you.

Our stay was fantastic, made even better by the warm hospitality from Troye and Paula as well as the restaurant teams that served us breakfast every morning during our stay. The ladies were super warm, ready to help at any given time. We will definitely visit again. Thank you!

Vrede en Lust truly is a gem in the winelands offering a variety of accommodation in close proximity to Franschhoek. Wonderful service from the time we arrived to when we departed. The estate wines and Lust Bistro for breakfast and late lunch are world class, complimented by incredibly dedicated and helpful staff which made for a memorable stay. This was our second visit and will not be the last!
