Gooding’s Groves Olive Farm Bed and Breakfast

Found in: Boland, Cottages, Featured Venues, Franschhoek, Guesthouses / B&B, Honeymoon Destinations, Western Cape, Winelands

Surrounded by mountains and olive trees in the beautiful Franschhoek Valley is Gooding’s Groves Olive Farm and B&B. Situated three kilometers from the centre of the historic village, the recently restored manor house built in the Cape Victorian vernacular has the feeling of a Provencal farmhouse.

Here you can relax in the comfort of any one of our eight en-suite guest rooms. Each with outside entrance, balcony and breathtaking views of the Drakenstein and Franschhoek Mountains, with the Wemmershoek Mountains literally on our doorstep.
Enter the warm embrace of the lounge, library and reception room with roaring log fire in winter. If it’s a cooler more relaxed feel you are after, the superbly positioned dining room with folding glass doors that open out on to a shaded patio, offers our signature view over the vineyards on the mountain ranges.

Gooding’s Groves offers a bed and breakfast experience with a personal touch typical of the Franschhoek way of life.
The atmosphere that one feels in Franschhoek village never disappoints and lives up to this unique Cape treasure with its abundance of galleries, crafts, art and antique shops. Main Street is legendary with its superb coffee shops and restaurants. Only 45 minutes from the mother city, Franschhoek is also the ideal base to explore the Cape winelands.
