Retreat to Vergenoegd Löw this winter


THERE’S nothing quite like a special getaway to Vergenoegd Löw in Stellenbosch. One of the country’s oldest working farms dating to 1696, it offers visitors a peaceful haven of rest and relaxation, infused with luxury, heritage and authenticity. Its winter warmth retreat is now open for booking. It includes two nights of bliss in the spacious deluxe lodge rooms in the beautifully restored farm manager’s house, each with serene garden views from a private patio with a jacuzzi; or the vineyard suites, with floor-to-ceiling windows in the lounge and bedroom, and heated plunge pool, offering magnificent mountain and vineyard views.

Both options are within easy reach of the boutique spa and gym; the indigenous gardens with striking Dylan Lewis sculptures; the historic homestead where fine wine tastings are offered; two impressive Bertus Basson conceived heritage restaurants, Geuwels and Clara’s Barn; and the werf where you can view the estate’s famous Indian Runner ducks waddling past at 9am and 12pm daily. The ducks play a vital role in Vergenoegd Löw’s regenerative, mixed farming enterprise. The farm is a WWF Champion, recognised for eco-sustainable agriculture and conservation of indigenous habitat.

Valid from 1 May to 30 September 2024, two nights include:

  • Welcome drink on arrival
  • Wholesome farm breakfast daily
  • Free limited minibar, re-stocked daily
  • One complimentary wine tasting of the Vergenoegd Löw wine range

Vergenoegd Löw is centrally located and within such easy access of the wealth of local attractions and amenities yet in a tranquil, spacious enclave, suffused with the fragrance of fynbos and other indigenous flora, salty notes from the nearby ocean and the sound of birdsong. It’s just 22km from Cape Town International Airport; less than 40km from the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town, and less than 90km from the celebrated seaside town of Hermanus.
