Nestled amongst its own vineyards in the heart of the Elgin Valley, South Hill boutique wine farm provides the perfect excuse to escape the city. In addition to its superb wines, South Hill offers a great country gourmet restaurant, a luxury venue and intimate guest house. Under an hour’s drive from Cape Town, you will find this a perfect setting for a wedding, friendly gathering, romantic weekend getaway or even better, a quiet weekday break. No matter what time of year, you will be drawn in by the changing colours of the valley's landscape.
South Hill's intimate guest house offers four double en-suite rooms as well as a loft with a private bathroom. Each en-suite room is individually decorated and features doors opening onto a private patio. The main area of the villa is open plan with a kitchen, dining room table and lounge area tastefully presented overlooking a garden and surrounding vineyards. A large open fire brings warmth during those chilly winter months.
Upstairs is a large loft area where guests can watch all DStv channels, use the library or play cards. The upstairs loft converts into a fifth en-suite bedroom, sleeping five people, with a double bed and three single children’s beds. With five rooms, the house can comfortably sleep up to 13 guests should you wish to rent it in its entirety. Other facilities include a 15 m pool, a boule court and al fresco dining options in the garden and patio, as well as a pizza oven.
This 4 Star accredited guest house is fully serviced and equipped for self-catering. Alternatively full catering can be provided by our reputable on-site chef Damian Dearlove. South Hill also offers a beautiful Honeymoon Cottage set away from the main house, overlooking the Shiraz vineyards and a dam. With its own private jetty and Jacuzzi, this intimate self-catering cottage offers couples privacy to relax and take in the farm life.
