Set in the beautiful Franschhoek valley, in the Winelands region of South Africa, Holden Manz (formerly Klein Genot) offers farm-style hospitality in an atmosphere of calm relaxation.

Hammocks and picnic spots are dotted around the property and the estate even has a beautiful lake which attracts a variety of waterfowl and graceful swans—it's the quintessential country retreat!


Holden Manz has just five guest suites, all individually decorated with hand quilted linen, large state-of-the-art bathrooms and contemporary finishes. The rooms are distinguished by their individual colour schemes – red, cream, lilac, yellow, blue or green. Each features a balcony with a view over the estate.


The estate’s restaurant serves wonderful home grown and organic food for lunch and breakfast. All meals are made with fresh produce from the estate's vegetable and herb gardens. Holden Manz also serves a traditional afternoon tea.
