Make Valentine’s Day the highlight of your social calendar and add extra romance to the day with a special Valentine’s package for two at Holden Manz that includes a picnic lunch, dinner at the Franschhoek Kitchen and a stay at the grand Holden Manz Country House.
With gorgeous mountain views, a picnic along the Franschhoek River at this lush estate will truly set the stage for this special day. The beautiful Cape Dutch style Country House, where stylish, contemporary art tastefully adorns the interior and each of the four luxurious rooms, holds the promise of a memorable stay.

Couples attending the Valentine’s dinner at the Franschhoek Kitchen will be welcomed with a complimentary glass of Colmant Méthode Cap Classique on arrival. Mouth-watering starters include a choice of oysters Kilpatrick, Rockefeller and naturelle, duck liver mousse on a plum confit tartlet or warm Asian salad with truffle oil. For mains, diners can enjoy succulent chateaubriand, béarnaise sauce and chateau potatoes, tuck into Cape lobster, savoury lobster soufflé and vanilla chive sauce, or try a vegetable terrine with chateau potatoes and basil vinaigrette. A tempting chocolate three ways dessert selection, which includes a chocolate berry semifreddo kiss, espresso chocolate mousse and sea salt caramel truffle is sure to seduce even the most demanding palate.
