A real place where magic happens
Just an hour’s drive from Cape Town, this unique and special place has been called 'a hidden gem’ and 'a corner of paradise’. Set in a kloof of the Paardeberg, Fynbos Estate has become a favourite destination for those with a love of nature and countryside, comfortable yet simple accommodation and fine quality food and wine.
A grand old Victorian farmhouse and quaint country cottages nestled amongst vineyards, olive groves and mountains, make Fynbos Estate ideal for getaways, workshops, retreats and conferences. Lovely gardens, a pavilion and an old cellar, create a magical setting for weddings, parties, and other functions.
Food & Wine
Fynbos country food and Dragonridge wines made here on the farm, are a central part of most happenings whether workshops or celebration. Food is seasonal, local and plentiful and the wine is delicious and naturally made in the old traditional way.

Simson-Simons Nature Reserve
In 2013, after 7 years of bureaucracy, we became a Contract Nature reserve under the auspices of Cape Nature, enabling us to protect and conserve the natural paradise of the Paardeberg, we feel so passionate about.
