It was a perfect stay with exceptionally friendly staff! Even when the battery of our rental car failed, they provided help without making a fuss.The room with a small private terrace was as beautiful, as the surroundings!

The bed was so comfortable, my husband and I honestly had the best night's sleep we have had n years. Elmarie was delightful and has the most infectious laugh. We felt very at home, and well-looked after.

We popped into L'Avenir by chance and am so glad we did. The blind tasting is loads of fun and a great way to test your pallet, the charcuterie and cheese board is SO delicious (those figs...mmmm) and awesome value for money and, the service is attentive, friendly and relaxed. The only thing that ruined the experience were the ludicrous...

What a very nice place. Very friendly - relaxed. Home cooked breakfast. Their white Chenin Blanc was the best we tasted in any wine tasting. Would we go back? Yes, Yes, and Yes. Very relaxed and private. No views from our room bur the added luxury of total privacy.

this was the second time we stayed at L'Avenir and it was as good as the first trip in 2015. a very warm welcome with a lovely glass of wine while we checked in. the highlight was swimming in the infinity pol looking out across the vineyard and then tasting wines on the terrace. We had a very interesting chat...

We stayed in Room 1 which has it's own splash pool. It is spacious and beautiful. On night two I stayed in Room 4. It was smaller and without it's own pool, but it was equally lovely and very well appointed. The linen was lovely and crisp. The mattress very nice. The pillows soft and feathery! There are four rooms...
