Vrede en Lust

Reception Venue

The Vineyard Terrace

Welcome to Vrede en Lust


Nestled at the foothills of the Simonsberg lies Vrede en Lust in the breathtaking Franschhoek wine valley.

Vrede en Lust offers an elegant and tranquil setting for the wedding of your dreams. Historical Cape Dutch architecture, undulating vineyards and breathtaking mountain scenery, coupled with our first class service and attention to detail, make Vrede en Lust the ideal location for your wedding!

The venues and accommodation will be exclusively yours for the day; therefore you have the option of changing venues (welcome drinks, ceremony, reception) for each function. The top-notch catering team provides catering from our restaurant LUST Bistro & Bakery and their food is of the highest quality at all times.

Maintaining the Cape Dutch architecture of the historic cellar, this venue lends itself to more intimate functions and can also be used on rainy days for your ceremony. This area is extended onto the vineyard terrace with spectacular views of the vineyards and Simonsberg mountains and a total of 300 sqm outdoor floor space surrounded by frameless glass (250sqm covered by a permanent roof structure).

- The venue is backed by generator power to ensure no loss of electricity at any time.

With one of the oldest Manor Houses in the country and our beautiful Jonkmanshuis cottages, you can tailor your package to include up to a whole weekend of luxurious farm-style living exclusively for you and your guests. Activities on the estate include wine tasting, hiking or cycling into the Simonsberg or getting Spa treatments at your convenience.

Contact our wedding coordinators to assist you in making your dream day a reality.
