Eneil and Team create a wonderful and welcoming environment for their guests. The art in the house is truly inspiring. The breakfast is magnificent. The friendliness of the staff is special. The views on the mountains are stunning. The owners also live in the house which makes staying with the Holden Manz family a personal experience.

Had an incredible 2-night stay at Holden Manz Country House. Short drive from Franschhoek, nestled in one of the most beautiful valleys in the area. Staff were immediately attentive and welcoming. Our room, which was a suite directly above the entrance to the main building was perhaps one of the best rooms I have ever stayed in. Much more than...

The Accommodation and Settings are superb as are the wonderful staff. We felt the country house could have been ours for the weekend. The Spa treatment was exactly that - a real treat. And the wines more than lived up to their excellent reputation. Thank you Mardi and Eneil and Lamek - and Migo and Gerard and all staff for...

What a place! What a service! Beautiful house surrounded by vineyards and mountains. Great place to relax and enjoy good wine. Close to Franschhoek and its lovely city center. You also have a nice restaurant on the property so you can taste the wine and walk back to your room :-)

Lovely place, stylish everywhere. Nice breakfast, you can order from the menu what you wish. We had dinner at the restaurant - enjoyed that as well. Can warmly recommend this place, and their Big G wine is really good! TIP: we went horse-back riding 5 min from this place in stable called Paradise Stable. 1-hour ride was 250ZAR.

Franschhoek is only a small town, with some great restaurants, but it is a great base to stay for 2-3 nights to explore the area. This place is just idyllic, the setting could not be more perfect and the House is just manicured to perfection. There are only 5 rooms but everything is just a piece of art, and as...

From entering the gate, greeted by the security guard to being invited into the country house this place is so far the most relaxing, surprising and beautifully located country house we have ever visited. Highest recommended for sure!
