“An explosion of green on Wemmershoek Road between Franschhoek and Paarl. Ancient oaks sheltering the bistro deck, sweeping reception hall and intimate winery functions space. With the nearby rose garden, pools, poplar forest and private lake with the Hou Moed mountains in the background. The La Paris Estate is a true discovery for functions in Franschhoek and Paarl.

Oaks and ponds beyond the old winery and 17th-century farm buildings lead to the rest of the estate’s plentiful little “biospheres” – unique spaces that create different settings for any wedding or function. And you’re not going to be left wanting for options for your next function here.

There’s also the newly renovated Lyceum space. It’s colossal to say the least, an old farm building converted into an immaculate white-marble-tiled functions venue with chandeliers and old beams in the ceiling that allows you to convert the look of the space into whatever you imagine by suspending decor or indoor plants.

The Lyceum functions space at La Paris accommodates about 450 people, easy. And, importantly, the side doors all open up onto a lush green outdoor lawn space that’s perfect for extending your reception or large function.

Both the Lyceum and winery also make for the ideal wedding ceremony – or indoor, back-up-plan reception – spaces. Which brings us to what La Paris is already very famous for, idyllic winelands weddings in Franschhoek.

Every “environment” is truly unique and worth strolling through whether you’re planning a wedding or not. There are sweeping lawns above the manor house, for carnival or picnic-style weddings. The rose garden is lush and beautifully tended. And the forested arbour makes for an incredible dusktime photo-procession as your party makes its way up to the lake, which has an island in the middle for more incredible photos.”



“Situated just eight kilometres outside of town, La Paris Estate is the quintessential Franschhoek farm. Its grounds pay homage to the region’s majestic beauty, with breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains, ancient oaks and peaceful dam, with a jetty across the water and an island in the centre – making it a dream spot for any occasion.

Aside from being a scenic wedding and sought-after functions venue, the historic estate is home to a popular bistro that serves a selection of delicious farm-to-table fare in a stylish, comfortable setting that even welcomes little members of the family.

There’s also a farm deli for take-home delights, and a bakery churning out fresh artisanal breads and cakes daily (who doesn’t love freshly baked, preservative-free treats?)

A succession of oak trees lines the patio, beckoning you to take a seat on one of the hand-crafted cane chairs, a relaxed, yet upscale environment with French-oak floors that mirror the giants outside – the perfect spot to cosy up to the fireplace on chilly days.”
