Taaibosch: Garden Villa

  • 4 guests
  • 2 bedrooms
  • 2 bathrooms

Taaibosch sits on the slopes of the Helderberg overlooking a patchwork of vineyards and mountains. Bought by a French wine-making family, the boutique wine estate has been meticulously converted to organic farming; the superb terroir producing its renowned Crescendo blend.

Sitting amid the vineyards and old oak trees are three accommodation options. The manor house, which dates to 1838 and provides a wonderful old-world charm, and two luxurious contemporary villas (Garden and Farsight) further up the slopes of the Helderberg. Lounging beside the pool, listening to birdsong in the fynbos, you’ll feel like you’re on top of the world.

Beautiful kitchens, dining and braai areas make entertaining a breeze, and there’s also the option of hiring a private chef for one or more meals, including a traditional braai or potjie.

Once you’ve explored the mountain trails leading from the estate, the Winelands is your oyster for all types of outings. But do leave time for lazy siestas, evenings playing board games and golden sundowners with a glass of the superb estate wine.


With two bedrooms, Garden Villa is the smallest of the three luxury villas on the estate and looks out onto lawns, indigenous plantings, terraces and vine-clad slopes with the soundtrack of birdsong and the distant sounds of the working wine farm.
