“WANNA BE ITALIANO”
Join us for a celebration of Italian food with our Wanna be Italiano Experience – just an hour out of Cape Town. Learn to make pasta by hand and taste wines from the local Breedekloof Wine Route.
We offer unique and interactive Italian Cooking classes. Classes start at 10am with a welcome drink from your host Jaco Brand that will do the introduction to the day, thereafter off to our permaculture vegetable garden where you will be picking your own fresh produce.
Discover the art of preparing fresh home-made pasta and bolognaise from scratch, accompanied by a little wine tasting from one of our local organic wines.
PicardiPlace has become known for its slightly avant-garde weddings – it offers an authentic, earthy mood that reflects our philosophy and surroundings. Picture a Bedouin tent under the stars amongst the vineyards with your friends and family dancing the night away. This does not mean that a more formal wedding is not an option. In fact, we can appreciate the more conventional approach some couples opt for, and are prepared to make it the grand affair they envision.
With our countryside hospitality you will feel right at home each time you decide to visit.There are many attractions on offer in the area such as hiking, mountain biking, angling and the Breedekloof Wine Route. You will find it an ideal weekend breakaway only 4km outside of Rawsonville on the picturesque Slanghoek road.
Our ‘Bridal suite’ is very popular whether the wedding takes place at PicardiPlace or elsewhere. It makes it possible for the bride and her entourage to have the guesthouse to themselves the night and hours prior to the wedding.
