Situated a few Kilometres from the centre of Franschoek this beautiful wine estate is tranquil and restful. Our ground floor suite was spacious and spotless and the breakfasts on the patio were perfect.
Charmaine, the owner couldn't gave been more helpful, even serving us drinks around the immaculate gardens and swimming pool.

A very belated but nonetheless truly heartfelt THANK YOU to Le Manoir de Brendel for hosting us a little while back in October for our Gondwana Tours & Safaris get together in the beautiful Cape Winelands. We were looked after like celebrities, “wined and dined”, nothing was too much trouble. Very friendly and attentive staff with welcoming smiles ……

We really enjoyed the plentiful amenities, and little touches like the complimentary sherry and wine. .... Loved the crisp linen and very comfortable beds/ bedding as well as the bathrobes. Unfortunately we did not have enough time to lounge around the huge pool - but it certainly is an amazing feature and we will have to return to try it out. We stayed at the self catering "cottage" which has three double beds. Downstairs en-suite bedroom and upstairs more open plan bedroom that shares one large bathroom in the middle. There is ample space! We also occupied two stunning rooms in the main house. What a treat. Equally big and equally well kitted out.

Breakfast is served on the verandah on sunny days & inside on cooler days. The buffet and hot breakfast to order leaves nothing to wish for. Dietary requirements are taken care of provided they have been communicated in advance.

If anyone is thinking of getting married or celebrating a special occasion look no further …. There is even a small chapel on the property! ….. also worth mentioning is that this is an animal friendly accommodation!

This beautiful gem surrounded by the characterful Franschhoek Mountain range in the Cape Winelands has the feel of a home away from home and offers all the comforts one would look for in a luxury accommodation. Franschhoek town is only a short 5min drive away. Guests may also enjoy hikes in through the vineyards that surround the property. For those that prefer a less busy place to stay when visiting Cape Town, Le Manoir really lends itself as a base from which to explore the Cape Peninsula.

Le Manoir de Grendel is a very intimate venue. We've been welcome like we were expected and they knew exactly who we were...
We have been seated on the stoep of the manor house, with amazing view on the garden and vines.
The wine is produced in a very limited quantity that makes this experience very exclusive, far away from these big commercial wine farms...
I stuck to the whites, and really appreciated them.
The platter was very well garnished.

A very nice place to be away from the crowed and enjoy the peace of an old wine farm...

This place was the most outstanding and delightful stay we had during our time in South Africa. Charmaine the manageress made our stay so memorable. Such attention to detail from the moment you enter, faultless, perfect, wonderful service. Totally delicious breakfast with an abundance of choice, hot breakfast cooked perfectly. The rooms are inviting and spacious, extremely clean and all you could wish for, bed was so comfortable, even slippers and gowns supplied, tea and coffee and complimentary bottle of wine and sherry. We can’t thank Charmaine enough, an outstanding manager who is there to greet you, to help with places to go and great knowledge on all the area. She runs this beautiful establishment so brilliantly with charm and a clear love for the hospitality industry, she goes above and beyond all customer expectations, her management is simply brilliant. Absolutely recommend this blissful place, we will be back for sure, now the only place for us to stay in Franschhoek!

Le Manoir de Brendel was the perfect choice for our intimate wedding!
My wife and I decided to come all the way from Germany to celebrate our wedding in Franschhoek. Even though we had never been to Le Manoir de Brendel and had to organise everything from abroad, it wasn’t difficult at all, since Charmaine has done a wonderful job responding to every little request we had. It is incredible how much time she invested to make sure everything would turn out just the way we wanted it to be.
In the end we had a small and intimate wedding at the best possible venue. Charmaine and her team did everything to fulfil all of our wishes and they made our event unforgettable. We owe her and her staff a very special thanks for all the organisation for our guests and we also thank Charmaine so much for the trust we could put into her in organising the wedding accommodation and celebration.

Our wonderful host, Charmaine, could not have been more helpful. Herself, Jolene, and Yummi attended to our every need with smiles, friendliness, and efficiency. My 80-year old mum found it easy to get around and my two little dogs felt quite at home. The dogs loved their walks around the vineyard and breakfast treats! The views are spectacular and the accommodation is stylish and comfortable. The included breakfast in the beautiful manor house was delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed our free wine tasting. Highly recommended!

Gorgeous property in a quiet setting, surrounded by vineyards.

The staff is absolutely lovely and caring, and was key in making our stay memorable — special thanks to Charmaine and Charne, and to the lovely cleaning staff. We very much enjoyed the tennis court on the property, as well as the great breakfast in a stunning setting.

Proximity to the center of Franschhoek was key, given the multitude of great restaurants in this very quaint village.
