Top 100 Hideaways in the World

Grande Provence Heritage Wine Estate has been chosen as one of Andrew Harper’s Top 100 Hideaways in the World.

Andrew Harper’s small team of editors travel around the world annually to uncover its most distinctive hotels, constantly updating its 1,000 recommended properties. However, it’s hideaways in particular, those tranquil hotels of 50 rooms or fewer, that form the heart of their philosophy.

Andrew Harper describes it as “Impressive 47-acre wine estate near Franschhoek that offers accommodations in the discreetly luxurious and superbly staffed Owners Cottage.”

The decor is indigenous yet quietly contemporary; four beautifully appointed rooms and a lavish suite offer spacious baths with tubs and walk-in showers. Amenities include a lounge, garden pool and elevated open-air Jacuzzi overlooking the vineyards."

"The Restaurant serves french-influenced cuisine accompanied by the estate's own vintages in a conservatory dining room; simpler meals can be booked by a private chef and served at the cottage." 

In a further tribute to The Huka Retreats, Grande Provence Estate sister property Huka Lodge,Taupo, New Zealand the beautiful heritage fly-fishing lodge that sits on the banks of the Waikato River, was also named in the Top 20 of the Andrew Harper’s Hideaways.
