About Val du Charron Guest House & Estate
Val du Charron Wine and Olive Estate, 4 Star Guesthouse and Spa is located on a working farm in the heart of the Bovlei Valley ten minutes from the town of Wellington and less than an hour's drive from Cape Town - the perfect accommodation spot in the heart of the Cape Winelands.
The original farm was proclaimed in 1699 and, as only the fifth family to hold title, the owners are conscious to maintain its historic integrity and re-establish the tradition of wine making on the farm itself. This can be evidenced in the rehabilitation of the historic buildings and the character of the architecture of the Estate.
The Guesthouse comprises eight luxurious suites each with stunning views of the vineyards, garden and the Hawekwa Mountains.
Our four star accommodation is made up of a large family room, four double rooms and three twin rooms on a bed and breakfast basis with the option of dinner available.
Guests can enjoy a full farmerís breakfast served in the dining area, which integrates with the wine/olive tasting facility and allows guests to access the working cellar during the day.
Val du Charron is about living the wine lifestyle, so our guests are invited to participate in all aspects of wine production - from harvesting to drinking it. Wine tasting and guided cellar and vineyard tours are available or explore the vineyards on foot or bike. For a completely novel wine tasting experience visit our Theatre of Wine.
We also offer guided walks between the valley's historic farms and, for the more adventurous, access to the famous Bainskloof mountain bike trails (home to the Cape Epic). For those more interested in olives, enjoy a tour of the olive grove rounded off with an olive tasting at the gazebo on our dam. The dam is also a great place to fish for bass.
Or, enter our Spa through its ancient Egyptian doors, to our quiet oasis of tranquility overlooking the majestic Hawekwa Mountains. Our fully trained therapist is available to offer advice and answer any questions you may have on any of our treatments or products.
