the conservatory

Nestled on the banks of the Kastaiing River, The Conservatory is set among vineyards and ancient oaks, presenting an absolute hidden gem for any event of your choice.

Using light and energy as key components at our facilities, a free flow of indoor/outdoor harmony is created. All year round, vast expanses of glass allow our guests the opportunity to fully appreciate the picturesque views that Franschhoek and the beauty of the surroundings have to offer.

During the sunny summer months, guests are able to enjoy South African weather at its best by combining the experience of the outdoors with all the assurances of indoor conveniences. During winter, all the elements of this season can be appreciated from the inside looking out. Whilst rain pelts down and picturesque mountains peep through the clouds, guests can relax next to large fireplaces and enjoy the splendour of it all.

Our philosophy is simple yet stylish, inspiring but versatile, catering to all who require a blank canvas to create a unique event that transforms a space into a true reflection of themselves.

Thank you so much! Both to you, personally, for running the day and to your Conservatory team for their hard work and helpfulness. The day was so special and we have had so many comments from family and friends about what a spectacular venue it was! The set-up was perfect and the breakdown was seamless and so organised. Thanks for collecting everything for us and making sure that all the pieces were in their place and looked fantastic. – Bronwyn & Matt
