Quality family time
In the heart of the Cape winelands is the Pearl Valley Hotel by Mantis – a luxurious hotel situated on the Val de Vie Estate between Franschhoek and Paarl. It’s an ideal location for a family holiday – whatever the season – and a great base from which to explore the neighbouring region.
On the estate itself is the Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf course plus a kiddie’s pool and play area, walking and running trails, a 42km mountain bike route, a gym with a yoga and pilates studio, a swimming pool as well as basketball, squash, tennis and padel courts. You can also visit some of the Impact Projects which include owl and bat rehoming projects.
Surrounded by Drakenstein mountain range, the active and diverse lifestyle of Pearl Valley offers outdoor activities for the whole family, outstanding restaurants and bar areas.
Within close proximity are wine estates and restaurants with child friendly entertainment areas: Farm animals, picnic sites, treehouses and climbing walls. You can visit Butterfly World or the Franschhoek Motor Museum with its 220 vehicles and various exhibits. Or get creative with ceramic painting at the Clay Café.
