Secure parking, state of the art kitchen and excellent staff are just some of the factors that will ensure your Collisheen experience to be peaceful, private, professional and perfect.

Orchid House

On 28 Feb 1699 Willem Adriaan van der Stel signed the deed to grant Jean le Roux land to farm on in the Paarl area.  Naming the farm Groot Parys; after his beloved country of birth, this was the start of a life-long legacy and a love affair with wines that today still strongly exists in the hand of the present owner.

Pampoen Fontein Guest Farm

Written by

The farm, two hours from Cape Town, has five  fully equipped self-catering cottages for hire. They are tastefully furnished and supplied with bed linen (100% percale cotton), towels, coffee and tea, and each has a fully equipped kitchen with dishwashing and cleaning material. Each cottage has an indoor fire place for winter (it snows on the farm from time to time!) and an outside braai area. For the summertime two cottages have private swimming pools and there is both a communal pool and a pristine dam for general use.

Price @ from R 245 per  person per Night

 

Hundreds of years ago nomadic herders camped at a fountain while crossing the mountains to the plains. Inevitably they dropped pumkin (pampoen) seeds which proliferated giving the area its name.

The farm, two hours from Cape Town, has five  fully equipped self-catering cottages for hire. They are tastefully furnished and supplied with bed linen (100% percale cotton), towels, coffee and tea, and each has a fully equipped kitchen with dishwashing and cleaning material. Each cottage has an indoor fire place for winter (it snows on the farm from time to time!) and an outside braai area. For the summertime two cottages have private swimming pools and there is both a communal pool and a pristine dam for general use.

 

Accommodation

Restio

The outer shell is built from local stone, the interior is modern, comfortable and tastefully furnished. The private rim flow pool is set against a typical Cederberg backdrop of fynbos covered mountains making Restio a unique getaway experience. 4 Double bedrooms ( 3 en suite)

Heron House

This was the owners’ private house which is now available for hire. It is comfortably furnished, has a generous covered patio, and looks out over a private pool onto the Olifantsrivier valley, some 15 kilometers below. Heron sleeps 8 people in 4 twin bedrooms.

Protea

Set against a sandstone kopje, this cottage has two bedrooms, a separate kitchen, dining room and living room with a sofa bed. It also has a generous verandah with stunning views. It sleeps seven (eight at a push!)

Pelargonium

This all wood cottage is nestled up against fynbos covered kopje teeming with dassies and birds. Grey Rhebok and klipspringer are often seen close by. The main bedroom opens onto an entertainment deck with stunning views over the Olifants river valley.

Lilly

A quaint A-frame wooden chalet looking over a lilly covered dam to the Olifantsrivier valley. Perfect for 2 – 4 people.

 

Activities


Walking & Cycling

We have several paths through our 400 hectare farm. They lead through fynbos covered mountains and invariably reveal magnificent views. The cycling paths vary from rough fire paths to the pass which is tarred but steep. It is possible to walk for several several kilometers on the public roads on the mountain, from the farm to the beginning of the Groot Winterhoek Reserve.

Swimming

In the summer months our guests enjoy either their private pools (Heron House & Restio) or the communal pool or Temptation Dam. The dam, with its sandy edges and warm shallows, is ideal for children.

Fauna

It is well known that the Cape Floristic Region is one of the most biologically diverse areas on earth, home to over 9,000 species. The Groot Winterhoek Mountains, and especially the Reserve, are considered a vital sanctuary to the preservation of many endemic species, some of which are threatened. The variety is staggering – it is said that on every day of the year a different species starts flowering! Since acquiring Pampoen Fontein in 2000 the owners have cleared aprox. 350 hectares of alien plant species – thousands of man hours are still spent each year removing regrowth. Flower viewing is best from August to November when the bulbs are in flower – but from June to December proteas and pincushions are prolific, while from November to February the ericas are in bloom.

Animals

Rhebok are prolific – often seen grazing around the cottages in the early morning and evening. There’s a colony of dassies in the kopjie near Protea and Pelargonium. Klip Springer are often seen when walking among the rocks and evidence of the elusive mountain leopard is common: we once found a rhebok carcass wedged in a tree near Protea cottage.

Venue Type - Wine Farm  Reception PAX - 150

 

Welcome to The Conservatory, Franschhoek Wedding Venues. In a world driven by commerce, materialism and uncertainty, where passion is so often replaced by necessity, there is a destination, which enables one to transcend these boundaries. Located in the breath-taking Franschhoek Valley, they offer a space in which you and your guests may elude suburbia and the city, and come and relax out in the country. Nestled on the banks of the Kastaiing River, The Conservatory is set among vineyards and ancient oaks, presenting an absolute hidden gem for any event of your choice.

Their inspiration is light and natures energy. Using light and energy as key components at their facilities, a free flow of indoor/outdoor harmony is created. All year round, vast expanses of glass allow their guests the opportunity to fully appreciate the picturesque views that Franschhoek and the beauty of the surroundings have to offer.

During the sunny summer months, guests are able to enjoy the South African weather at its best by combining the experience of the outdoors with all the assurances of indoor conveniences. During winter, all the elements of this season can be appreciated from the inside looking out. Whilst rain pelts down and picturesque mountains peep through the clouds, guests can relax next to large fireplaces and enjoy the splendour of it all.

You will notice that their services and staffing are out-sourced. This allows you the opportunity to structure your special event on a blank canvas with very few restrictions from their side.
