 A character filled Cape Dutch Manor-House, built in the 1800s comprises 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. The accommodation has double and single beds, with a combination of both in some rooms.
This beautiful manor will be for the exclusive use of the group, and ladies will be accommodated according to the time of booking and which configurations are available. The house is fully equipped with 2 living areas and a dining room. Ample Space to socialize or just lounge about in your free time …
Single Supplement Bookings have their own room
( Limited and available on request)




 Relax, unwind, grab a glass of wine, and leave all your stress behind.

This is YOUR time to simply be HAPPY

The intention of this breakaway is to have a great time interacting with other ladies, making the best of the beautiful landscape,  getting creative, letting your hair down, or doing as little as possible. Nothing is mandatory, so take from the itinerary just what you need with no guilt. We want you to leave feeling like a million dollars !!!!

Esta, Lisa, and Tracey are your co-hosts and will be entertaining and guiding you.  From an interactive cooking class, to painting with wine ( yes, actually painting with Cabernet), to a botanical clay workshop, will leave you feeling like you could be the next Masterchef or even a tipsy Picasso in the making.

Eleanor Pretorius will be your main hostess for your stay on the  Contreberg farm.  They purchased this beautiful piece of Heaven and have since renovated and restored the old Manor House, opened a wedding venue, and started making their own wine under the Contreberg label.
