Found along a dirt road at the foot of the Bainskloof Pass is the working farm, Doolhof, home to the luxurious country house, Grand Dédale. Close to the Cape Winelands town of Wellington, situated along Route 62 and an hour’s drive from Cape Town, this retreat offers rural elegance and loving the attention to detail.
Grande Dédale ensures that dining is a uniquely decadent experience. Think ‘Cap Classique’ breakfasts with freshly squeezed juices, homemade jams and fruit bowls, a selection of breads, pastries and cereals with a variety of hot meals available daily. Be sure not to miss the high tea buffet, 4-course d’hôte dinner menu with locally sourced ingredients or the picnic basket lunches to be devoured at prime mountain viewpoints.
Grande Dédale ensures complete privacy and comfort, with opulent white interiors and six individually designed en-suite bedrooms. With 1 Luxury Loft, 2 Superior Lofts and 3 Suites situated in the main manor house, there is something for everyone. For honeymooners and travellers seeking privacy, a beautifully restored 1707 Cottage stands quietly amid the paddocks and gardens.
