Vrede en Lust origins back to 1688 when the then Governor of the Cape allocated this 66ha farm to the Flemish merchant, Jacques de Savoye, who fled Europe due to religious persecution. During the last 329 years, the estate had many ups and downs with various owners. It is believed that the first Sunday trading in the Cape colony, took place at Vrede en Lust, due to the first protestant church which was built on the estate. Vrede en Lust had always been a wine farm and current vineyards reflect the plantings of 1745. On 3 October 1996, a brand-new era was beckoning in the history of this extraordinary farm, Vrede en Lust Estate, when the Buys family became the new owners.
The Residence, Vrede en Lust is a Luxury Villa in the Winelands, Franschhoek, and it is a 6 bedroom all en-suite villa.
The fully serviced and elegantly designed villa is ideal for families or parties traveling together. Multiple contemporary indoor and outdoor entertainment areas. Set in a private 3Ha/7.5 acre part of the estate with top security.
