The advent calendars, Michael Bublé, and festive fanfare have all reminded us that Christmas was coming for the last three months, but in the Banhoek Valley we're releasing our advent calendar today. Instead of opening thin chocolates leading up to Christmas Day, we're offering far more tempting and indulgent treats in and around De Zeven. So even if you aren't currently with us, these are the things you can look forward to...
De Zeven offers luxury guest house accommodation in the Cape Winelands between the famous towns of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek. Nestled on the slopes of the mysterious Banhoek Valley, it is a place of thrilling adventure and expansive tranquillity. You can look forward to the finest bed & breakfast experience and personal service, while admiring the incomparable sight of mountains soaring above you, and the valley opening at your feet.
A few unique experiences at De Zeven...

Wake up in soft cotton sheets to views that will take your breath away. Enjoy attention to the smallest details and personal service, from the moment you arrive to the day you reluctantly have to pull yourself away from this splendid stay.
De Zeven is home to its own private wine label, Limoenkloof, featuring 3 exceptional wines (Sauvignon Blanc, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon) and a Brut Sauvignon Blanc MCC – available here and nowhere else.
Sun-drenched water, martini seats, and an unobstructed view over the valley turn a dip in the pool into something special.
With more than 70km of trails in the Banhoek Conservancy – most of it single-track – you can bank on days and days of superb MTB play. Directly accessible from our doorstep.
Sooth your body and relax your muscles in our sauna – the perfect end (or beginning) to a day of relaxation or mountain biking and trail running adventures.
We built the indoor/outdoor lounge and viewing deck because the view from it is nothing short of mesmerising, whether you’re enjoying breakfast or relaxing on a sunbed.
