La Motte Historic Walk

culture in Franschhoek

Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri
Wednesday from 10h00 – 11h00.
Closed on Christian religious holidays.

True to its principle of sharing its attributes, La Motte has introduced a conducted tour of the historic buildings on the estate.
The tour is presented from 10h00 to 11h00 on Wednesday mornings. Starting at the La Motte Museum, the walk is preceded by a brief résumé of the history and heritage of the estate, after which the tour proceeds through La Motte’s rose garden and dwells at four national monuments gracing the Franschhoek Valley landscape: The La Motte Manor House, The Jonkershuis, The La Motte Historic Cellar, The Water Mill.
A highlight of the Historic Walk is the milling of stone-ground flour, by the oldest operating mill in the Franschhoek Valley, for the bread baked in the Pierneef à La Motte kitchen. The walk is concluded with a tasting of these artisan breads.
