VENUE an exceptional setting

Hosting an event at Val de Vie offers you the luxury of choice. With several unique venues within the estate, you can discover the perfect setting in which to celebrate your occasion.

THE PAVILION the crown of the estate

The iconic Polo Pavilion is the crown of the estate, overlooking the vast polo fields with the stables on the right shoulder and the Franschhoek mountains towering before it. It is here where we host our seasonal polo tournaments and exhibition matches, including the Veuve Clicquot Polo Masters and Cintron Pink Polo in aid of Breast Cancer. Impressive in stature, one is awestruck every time you pass through the arches that lead to the scenic terraces.

THE BALLROOM elegance meets luxury

Val de Vie boasts a classic French- inspired ballroom. Tall glass sliding doors invite the outside scenery into this elegant space forming a magnificent backdrop to your reception. The ballroom can comfortably seat 300 guests when using the dance floor space or 250 guests without making use of the dance floor. The venue includes luxury wheelchair friendly ladies and gents’ restrooms.

THE RESTAURANT elegance with a view

At the heart of Val de Vie Estate, overlooking the pristine polo fields, lies the renowned Polo Club Restaurant and Black Bar. With exceptional views of the mountains and the estate, our restaurant area is a versatile venue for private functions.

L’HUGUENOT  VENUE & VINOTEQUE where old meets new

A new addition to the Val de Vie offering, the L’Huguenot Cellar at Val de Vie Estate, presents the perfect combination between old and new world style. With incredible views over the historic vineyards, the venue has the capacity to accommodate up to 250 seated guests, as well as more intimate functions and meetings in the chic designer Vinoteque.

TERRACES celebrate with a view

The Polo Pavilion’s terraces command spectacular views of the polo fields. They are a popular setting for pre-drinks: guests can sip on fine wines or bubbly while enjoying a live polo match, or perhaps a game of boules or croquet.


In the Beginning...
