A Season of Lavender

Among the backdrop of majestic mountains and lush vineyards, the spectacular site of lavender fields in full bloom make a summertime drive towards Franschhoek a thing of beauty. A charming old cottage and ancient oak tree in the midst of the purple add to the picture and make it something to behold. This scene, fit for a painting, plays off across the road from La Motte’s entrance and the historic building and lavender fields do indeed form part of the estate. There is uncertainty as to the…

Blushing Bride Beauty

The Blushing Bride, a rare white or pink flower with silky, pointy petals, is somewhat of a legend in the Franschhoek Valley. The story goes that it was discovered in the surrounding mountains in 1773 and came by its romantic name from its use in a rather romantic tradition. A French Huguenot farmer who was in love would wear this flower in his lapel when he decided to propose to the girl he fancied. The pinker the flower, the more serious his intentions were, causing the bride-to-be to…

Autumn on La Motte

La Motte's age-old oak trees are very popular during the warm months of the year when guests spend their time relaxing in their cooling shade. In autumn, however, the lush greenery changes into a splendour of orange, gold-brown and deep red that has passers-by rubbernecking to enjoy a view of the oak-tree lined avenue running up to the historic manor house on the estate. Popular among photographers: The oak tree avenue in its autumn attire. But after the balmy days of autumn, when the cold…

La Motte Historic Buildings

The name La Motte has its origin from a little village in Provence – La Motte d’Aigues. In 1970 the La Motte farm was bought by Dr. Anton Rupert and a major development, restoration and conservation programme followed, which reinvented La Motte into a leading global wine producer and sought-after tourist destination.
