Hidden in a kloof of the Paardeberg Mountain is the magical Fynbos Estate - grape and olive farm, small winery, guest house, celebration and conference venue and nature reserve.
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.

Simson-Simons Nature Reserve
The Paardeberg is a natural paradise, which we feel passionate about protecting and conserving. To this end, the farm not only forms part of the Paardeberg Conservancy, an initiative set up by some landowners in the area, but in 2013 we became a Contract Nature reserve under the auspices of Cape Nature.
