About Holden Manz Country House

Holden Manz Country House is like no other and is located on a small, verdant estate at the edge of the internationally renowned Boland town of Franschhoek. The property was transformed into a working wine estate in 1999.

Holden Manz Country House is designed in the Cape Dutch style but is only just over ten years old. Luckily for our guests this means that the spaces you would normally find in a Cape Dutch building are vastly more comfortable and grand in layout - clean line architecture of the Dutch historic influence with all the mod-cons of the 21st century, from underfloor heating to iPod docking stations and flat-screen TV’s.

The beautifully restrained architecture, with its exposed thatched roof, allows the eye to flow freely through the large spaces. All suites have perfectly appointed modern bathrooms with ample space for a near spa-experience indulgence.


The mute variations of different grey tones on the wall surfaces allow the changing light of the seasons and day times to play joyfully with the warm interior finishes. Extra-large bed pillows invite you to drift into a calm sleep after a day filled with new experiences in the Western Cape winelands. The fresh flowers and jug of lemon and mint infused water on your bedside table are only a few little extras that allow you to relax and rejuvenate.

A modern art collection can be found throughout the buildings - every suite has contemporary African art on show and even the books and magazines on display in the country house are of exceptional quality and calibre.

During warmer days the four guest suites, three of which have their own terraces, invite you to enjoy a private garden tea experience. Should it get a bit colder in the evening, then you can enjoy sundowners in your suite in front of a crackling log fire, ideally with a glass of our superb red wine.

The spa and studios

A beautiful swimming pool is situated close to the guestrooms where the Franschhoek and Stony Brook Rivers meet. The health and wellness Spa is fully equipped with three treatment rooms, each overlooking the vineyard. Adjacent to the spa is a large yoga and Pilates studio that opens out to our vineyard with views of the surrounding mountains through a vast sliding glass façade.
