This 47 hectare farm, an hour’s drive from Cape Town, in the fabled Franschhoek Valley, offers an exhilarating lifestyle opportunity, with a portion under agriculture, and the remainder run as svelte guest accommodation.

Burgundy Bourgogne’s heirloom history springs from the 17th century when a group of Huguenots under Simon van der Stel travelled from Stellenbosch and into the Valley of Franschoek where they established 23 farms on what has now become world-famous terrain.

The original H-shaped manor house is the piece de resistance is a national monument with its unique gable and has kept its heirloom atmosphere while maintaining its five-star comfort. The manager’s house is also a national monument dating back to 1791 and holds withinit, an interior of sleek, modern finishes.

The farm Bourgogne was granted to Pierre de Villiers, Huguenot, from La Rochelle in France, by Simon van der Stel, the first Governor of the Cape Colony, in 1694.

It is a signature palace of pleasurable activity, a scrumptious gateau of sweet breads and luxury appurtenances, encompassing cottages, swimming pools, billiard rooms, gyms, sauna and a boma set like a jewel in a crenelated landscape of ancient mountains.

This eye bogglingly beautiful wine estate was restored in 2001 and the original Title Deed granted by Simon van der Stel hangs in the Manor, reminder of its historical status.

These old farms, so seldom available, have a deep profundity, and exist within a frappe of luxury and rosy tints bestowed by age and history, a place where the bandaged soul can take comfort amidst fifty hectares of vines, olive groves, lavender and centuries-old oaks, a unique icon property that seldom comes on the market.

The farm is situated against a mountain with its sloping land and vertiginous peaks, beyond which lies level land for the cultivation of olives and vineyards. The farm is parcelled in two portions with the famous Franschhoek river bordering the Eastern portion. There is ample water, and plenty of utility buildings.
