La Rive Accommodation
Guests will fall in love with our six luxury bedrooms...each air-conditioned, en-suite room has a personality and character of its own, and no two of the antique bedside tables are alike.
Spacious, airy patios are the perfect spot to relax and take in what is La Rive... An inviting swimming pool will provide you with a refreshing respite from Franschhoek’s hot summer days and if you were to venture further, you would stumble upon an enchanted, lush garden that could very well be the one from Frances Hodgson Burnett’s “The Secret Garden”.
With numerous paths leading to various alcoves, benches and lawns, you’ll be able to disappear for some quiet time, meditation, or even a romantic moment.
With a live-in chef and butler, you’ll awake each morning in this finely decorated villa to a 5-star breakfast and be treated to such world-class service, you’ll feel like royalty. With an outdoor entertainment area, refreshing pool, magnificent gardens and fully-inclusive drinks, rest assured you’ll never be left wanting for anything.
Lunches and Dinners must be arranged prior to arrival if guests are wanting to eat at La Rive.
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.
A marvellously eclectic mix of Victorian, Cape Dutch and Georgian architecture and furniture, as well as numerous pieces from famous South African artists such as Neil Rodger, Gregoire Boonzaier, Edward Wolfe and Dylan Lewis on display, illustrates the owner’s passion for art collecting. He adds, “It’s how I imagined the house would have evolved if the family who built it had lived here forever.”
The property is also available to be rented out for small scale weddings and photo shoots, the backdrops and gardens providing the perfect setting for either.
