You will be warmly welcomed as you walk through the doors and shown to your beautiful French-themed room. The French suites and little street café were built inside famous South African Sculptor, Charles Gotthard’s old stone studio. You will find some of his work around the accommodation as well.
The gardens of La Provence D’ Afrique run up to the Berg River and the forest, where you can enjoy hearty breakfasts, a romantic picnic for two and couples’ massages at the little Zen spa.
“Nestled within the Magaliesburg, you find that La Provence is the place for any couple that wishes to escape the hustle of the City. The 3 dogs that greet you on the premises are so friendly and gentle. Reminded me of home! It was mostly the attention to detail that got my attention! There were flowers in the room and with all your meals. if antiques flow through your veins, you will most definitely see the value of the antique furniture and decor! Loved the food basket on Friday evening and Saturday morning! The Staff were super friendly and efficient.” – Nelia

“We treated ourselves to a Valentine’s special at this quaint little place. There is just so much attention to detail. Our room was a real treat and had a huge fireplace with two comfy rockers. Plenty of roses and chocolates as promised. The staff were very attentive and couldn’t do enough to ensure that we were well taken care of. The food was really good and well presented.” Gavin
A massive MERCI to Marguerite and her team at La Provence D’ Afrique for an unforgettable experience. The venue is beautiful and the food absolutely delicious. From the moment you arrive you are welcomed and doted on. You are made to feel so special. The picnic basket idea for dinner is so authentic and lovely and just adds to the romance of the venue. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we look forward to booking again soon. Highly recommended. Jolene (7- 8 Sept 2019) – Email
