Celebrate Valentine’s Day With A Picnic At La Motte

Enjoy a romantic Valentine’s Day picnic in the historic ambience of La Motte’s Cape Dutch buildings, classic rose garden and in the shade of age-old oaks!

La Motte opens its private gardens and invites you to enjoy the spacious and shaded lawns and dreamy nooks and crannies of the beautiful estate for a romantic picnic on Valentine’s Day! Make the most of the glorious summer weather, the fresh air of the Franschhoek Valley and a safe outdoors environment to celebrate your special someone.

Treat your loved one to Chef Eric Bulpitt’s picnic menu for two with delicious summer fare and farm-style favourites, inspired by the month of love. Picnic boxes are also available for collection if you would like to rather enjoy them at home.
