Merindol Manor is one of the oldest heritage homes in the picturesque wine and olive producing Riebeek Valley in the heart of the Swartland, about an hour’s drive from Cape Town in South Africa. Once a stately family home, now a lovingly restored boutique guesthouse, Merindol Manor has landscaped gardens, its own olive grove and freshly-picked fruit and vegetables from its bountiful gardens. Breakfast eggs are collected from the fluffy hens each morning. The four spacious double rooms have crisp white linen and en-suite facilities. Each room has a mountain, pool or garden view. There is WiFi throughout and the Manor’s Littlest Library is lovingly stocked with both French and South African literature, including comic books for small people. Your hands-on host at Merindol Manor is the affable Vincent. After 17 years in the banking world of Geneva, London and Luxembourg, he founded a tourism business in his homeland of Belgium. Vince moved to South Africa in 2016 and loves to share his passion for travel, cycling, good food and wine with his guests. Riebeek Valley is in the wine-producing Swartland – a region known for its world-class Shiraz and award-winning Chenin wines. The valley is also home to a host of independent olive oil producers. The luxury guesthouse is the perfect hub to explore the surrounding regions such as the quaint fishing village of Paternoster on the West Coast which is a 45 minutes drive away, the lush winelands of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek, also 45 minutes away and then the rugged Cederberg mountains which is an hour’s drive away. And then it’s only an hour to the city of Cape Town and the V&A Waterfront for the bustling city experience. Return at the end of the day to the peaceful Manor an authentic Swiss fondue prepared by Vince. Merindol is the place to relax, explore the local restaurants and wineries and enjoy a peaceful time in the scenic countryside.

The decision to go away as a treat is fulfilled when you leave a venue feeling treated, Nath at Merindol Manor treated us! The venue is beautiful, the rooms, the pool, the garden, the setting all stunning! Its the lovingly prepared breakfast with the flexibility of plant-based cuisine, and the uniqueness of Nath's Belgian flare and warmth that makes you want to go back!

2 years since we were last there but delighted that this stay was as good as we previously experienced. Vincent hosted us with great attention, to the point of serving individually cooked breakfast. Merindol Manor is a wonderful early 20th century house exuding the character of that time. wonderful garden and views, Kasteelberg to the back of the property. Reebeck West has developed some new business during the pandemic and there are good eateries there as well as in neighbouring Reebeck Kasteel. We will visit again!

We spent three fabulous days at Merindol Manor, enjoying the wonderful garden, the views from the veranda and the swimming pool. Everyday started with a breakfast that included only the freshest ingredients and products from farms nearby. The day‘s end saw us in the library with a complimentary port.

We loved our stay at Merindol. The host Vincent was extremely welcoming and the attention to every detail made the stay memorable. The room was really clean and comfortable, and the breakfast the next morning very enjoyable. We will stay there again in a heart beat.

What a great surprise! Beautiful old manor house excellently refurbished. Stylish and elegant. We were welcomed by the owner, shown our room and offered refreshments. The place is serene, with beautiful gardens and quality finishes. The breakfast the next morning surpassed our expectations. Highly recommended!

Excellent hospitality in a beautifully maintained and tastefully decorated manor house. Charming surrounding close to mountain walks. Near to good restaurants and close to Cape Town for the perfect weekend break.

As others have said , one is torn between recommending this beautiful B and B and keeping it a secret. The property has been faithfully renovated to its full Victorian splendor. The large garden ( with jacarandas in full bloom when we were there), pool and wrap around shaded balcony offer a number of alternatives for relaxing... (though there are great hikes, drives , wine farms and really good dining options in and around the town) Breakfast was a big treat with freshly baked macaroons, iced watermelon juice and excellent coffee. Really comfortable bed and large bathroom. We loved the comfy unfussy lounge with its range of books, music and videos in French and English ! Strongly recommended Merci Nat
