For a holistic view of the wine making process or simply to enjoy the tranquility of the farm, a number of walks and bike rides have been set up around the farm that highlight aspects such as the various cultivars of wine grown, the bee hives necessary to pollinate the vines and the dams that catch and supply the farm with all its water.​​

Facilities & Activities


The four-star Guesthouse comprises eight luxurious suites each with stunning views of the vineyards, garden and the Hawekwa Mountains.

The five-star Coach House is a boutique Winelands getaway for the discerning guest who values their privacy. Consisting of only three spacious suites, each with its own plunge pool and private patio with built in wood burning fireplace, guests can unwind in their own space overlooking the majestic Winelands and mountains. 

The Hotel


Guests can enjoy a full farmer’s breakfast served in the dining area, which integrates with the wine/olive tasting facility and allows guests to access the working cellar during the day.
During Wellington's hot summer months a swimming pool is available for the use of our guests. An a la carte menu is available for lunches. During the winter months large fire places with couches provide ambiance for board games or reading from our extensive library while sipping on a glass of Val du Charron's premium wine.

Val du Charron Guesthouse is located on a working wine and olive farm in the heart of the Bovlei valley ten minutes from

the town of Wellington and less than an hour's drive from Cape Town. Nestling at the foot of the Groenberg mountain,

the town of Wellington lies amid the vineyards and olive groves of the Bovlei valley on the banks of the Kromme River.

The majestic Hawequa Mountains are silent sentinels on its eastern border.
