Such a beautiful part of the Western Cape. Loved our stay. Spacious rooms with private balcony. Miles was a great host, full of smiles and conversation. The staff we had interactions with were also very friendly and accommodating. The 2 restuarants on the premises were both amazing. Only negatives were the flat pillows, did not make for a comfortable night...

From every aspect of this spacious guesthouse you look out onto 180 degree views of mountains, intense blue skies, ochre fields, bright green grass and vineyards. A working wine estate, Val du Charron understands fine tastes. A clear love of outdoor dining, open decks stretch out into the view and it is marvellous entertainment to watch each arriving guest gasp,...

We were here with friends on an incredibly hot afternoon for lunch. The restaurant was wonderfully cool and the views across the Wellington valley were spectacular. the waiter was very knowledgeable and explained the different cuts of meat and the aging process involved. The food was excellent, highly recommend

This is a beautiful wine estate with amazing views from the guest bedrooms. The staff here were lovely and couldn't have been more helpful. Unfortunately the cellars were closed to the public but the owner arranged a tour for us, which was lovely. We stayed in a room with a plunge pool overlooking the vineyard with mountain views.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Val du Charron guest house is located on a working farm in the heart of the Bovlei valley, ten minutes from the town of Wellington and less than an hour's drive from Cape Town. The guest house comprises nine luxurious suites, each individually furnished. The Coach House is a boutique Winelands getaway for the discerning guest who values their privacy. Consisting of only three spacious suites, each with its own plunge pool and private patio with built in wood burning fireplace, guests can unwind in their own space overlooking the majestic Winelands and mountains. Guests can enjoy a full farmer's breakfast served in the dining area; which integrates with the wine tasting facility and allows guests to access the working cellar during the day. For a holistic view of the wine making process or simply to enjoy the tranquility of the farm, a number of walks and bike rides have been set up around the farm that highlight aspects such as the various cultivars of wine grown, the bee hives necessary to pollinate the vines and the dams that catch and supply the farm with all its water. Guests may also fish the basis for bass on a catch and releases basis.During Wellington's hot summer months a swimming pool is available for the exclusive use of guests.During the winter months large fire places with couches provide ambiance for board games or reading while sipping on a glass of Val du Charron's premium wine. ... more   less
