Nestled at the end of a tranquil valley below the historic Bainskloof Pass, Grand Dédale is set within an award winning Wine Estate, offering sweeping views of the valley as well as three mountain ranges. The picturesque town of Wellington is a short drive away, and Cape Town can be reached within 50 minutes.
The exclusive and elegantly restored Cape Dutch Manor House, formerly the private residence of the owners of Doolhof Wine Estate, comprises six individually designed rooms and suites, offering 5 star luxuries and amenities. A separate thatched cottage is enjoyed by honeymooners or guests seeking additional privacy.
Grand Dédale welcomes its guests with sumptuous comfort, discreet service and complete exclusivity amidst beautiful mountain and vineyard scenery.
Facilities in the Country House comprise a large outdoor swimming pool, a spa room, a dining room, a library and tea lounge, a wine tasting centre and extensive landscaped gardens with indigenous flora.
Imaginative cuisine is served in private dining rooms or al fresco on the grand veranda overlooking the mountains. Emphasising locally sourced ingredients, all meals from a delicious “Cap Classique” breakfast with a range of homemade treats to a three-course table d’hôte menu are catered for and prepared by the resident chef.
For the active guests, the 380 hectare Estate offers various walking, hiking and mountain biking trails; two mountain bikes are available for complimentary use.
Further activities including horse riding, clay pigeon shooting as well as golf played on world class golf courses, are a short drive away.
