Rehoboth, meaning 'a place to flourish', is a Cape Dutch residence which sits beautifully within its white and green surrounds.

Created with traditional parterre and topiary, the formal setting is home to Murraya exotica lemon trees, fragrant lemon blossom, rosemary and snowdrift thyme, all of which add a lovely perfume to the garden. Iceberg Roses, the most popular rose in South Africa, complement the green well and have a long blooming period, from October throughout the summer and well into autumn, and the walls are covered with an evergreen creeping fig, creating a green living wall.

 

The garden has various sitting, lounging, sunbathing and dining options, allowing it to be used at different times of the day throughout each season. Rehoboth has been a regular feature in the Franschhoek Open Gardens Festival.
