Holiday Rental House
When the owners first bought La Rive in 1993, it was barely recognisable from what it has become today. They spent the better part of 2 years renovating and developing their dream winelands home before completion by Easter 1995. Today, La Rive has been transformed into an incredibly warm and homely villa that resembles a marriage of colonial English and traditional Afrikaans / Dutch heritage. The sounds of water from various features around the grounds will transport you to a tranquil hideaway just off Franschhoek’s Main Road. Considering it’s only a block off this road, you’ll be amazed that you can’t see any forms of human habitation from all parts of the garden, swimming pool and outside verandahs. PLEASE NOTE: The rate is for the whole house usage (6 bedrooms) and single room bookings...When the owners first bought La Rive in 1993, it was barely recognisable from what it has become today.
