Klein Genot

Set in the beautiful Franschhoek valley, in the Winelands region of South Africa, 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!


Klein Genot has just six guest rooms, all individually decorated with hand quilted linen, large state of the art bathrooms and contemporary finishes. All of the rooms have been designed with a specific colour in mind – red, cream, lilac, yellow, blue or green – and feature a balcony with a fantastic view.


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. Klein Genot also serves a traditional afternoon tea.

And, with just over twenty hectares of red varietal vineyards producing world-renowned Franschhoek wine, Klein Genot is a wine lover’s paradise.
