JULY 2012


Our winter special!


It is July and the green season with its quiet, wet and cold days in the Franschhoek Valley has its own unique attraction featuring different shades of autumn in the vineyards. It is the time of year that allows our visitors to linger over long drawn out lunches and to enjoy leisurely strolls through the village before seeking warm comforts for the night.   


At Gooding’s Groves we understand exactly what you need for the cold winter nights. For this purpose we have wonderful home-made soup ready which we serve at a log fire with freshly baked bread and a glass of red wine to all that come to enjoy the warm hospitality for which our guest house is known!


The Gooding’s Groves winter special at R450 per person sharing includes a buffet breakfast, a complimentary glass of wine and our home-made soup and bread on arrival. Come and see for yourself why they call the Cape winter the green season! It is simply the most beautiful time of the year in this part of the world.
