Grand Dédale

With the dramatic mountain ranges as a backdrop, imaginative cuisine, a wide selection of award winning wines from Doolhof Wine Estate, privacy and tranquility, and the proximity to the major attractions of the Cape Peninsula, Grand Dédale Country House in the Cape Winelands is a preferred destination for couples seeking a truly unique location for an intimate celebration. The 380 hectares of mountains, vineyards, riverbeds, fruit orchards and fynbos surrounding the Manor House are a paradise for any wedding photographer.

The large open plan lounge area is flush with natural light and therefore ideal for the bride's preparation..

While your most memorable moments are captured an aperitif with a tantalizing selection of canapés is served and your guests are invited to take a stroll down to the river or into the vineyards. Alternatively we can arrange for a private wine tasting of our award winning wines. A variety of venues for the ceremony, a formal reception or cocktail function are available for the couples to choose. Be it an intimate celebration for two or a cocktail function with 180 guests we can provide you with the venue of your dreams.

For an intimate wedding, we will gladly assist you in arranging additional services like a wedding cake, photographer & videographer, hair & make-up artist, spa & beauty treatments, flowers & decoration, live music & entertainment, stationary… and anything else you can think of to make your day a success…!

All functions are catered for by our resident chef who has created a number of set menus for you to choose from. Should you have special wishes, our chef will gladly meet with you to discuss your ideas and will do his utmost to come up with a set, buffet or cocktail snack menu according to your requirements and taste. We strive to keep the service and catering standards on a constant high level and therefore do not allow any outside caterers.

Our romantic living cottage which stands a short distance from the Manor House is ideal as a honeymoon suite. The large open plan lounge area is flush with natural light and therefore ideal for the bride's preparation and to gather the closest family and bridesmaids.

Kindly note that Grand Dédale is exclusive to in-house guests and venue inspections are strictly by appointment only.
