Welcome to Old Oak Manor & Café Felix in Riebeek Kasteel, Western Cape, South Africa! Old Oak Manor is an old farmhouse built circa 1860 that was converted into a comfortable guesthouse by interior guru Salome Gunter. Located on the same property, Old Oak Manor and Café Felix form an ideal combination and makes for a very special venue for weddings and special occasions.
Since its opening in December 2005, Café Felix has steadily been building a reputation for itself as a name synonymous with sumptuous fresh country cuisine, good service and a special ambience (described by many as a piece of France).
The 'lived-in' French Provençal style of interior is apparent throughout the house and many guests have referred to Old Oak Manor as a 'home from home'. The guest house has been featured in many local and international magazines, and even on the front cover of some French interior magazines.
Old Oak Manor has four en-suite bedrooms respectively called Tara, Julius, Misty and Felix and are named after the owners' cats. The two bigger rooms, named after the two "fat cats" Tara and Julius, are located at the back of the house and open onto a patio leading to the swimming pool. These bedrooms have a double bed and spacious bathroom with free standing Victorian bath and shower.
The other two rooms, named after the two "sleek cats" Felix and Misty, are respectively located to the side and front of the house. These bedrooms also have double beds with an en-suite bathroom containing a shower. This same relaxed style of décor was used here. All rooms have wall heaters for the cold winter nights.
The Loft is located above the restaurant. This spacious living area consists of a lounge, bedroom and en-suite bathroom and contains a double bed and two day beds. DSTV, tea/coffee facilities and an honesty bar are available in the loft. Room service can be ordered from the restaurant during normal open hours. With its special interior this space is very popular as a honeymoon suite.
Breakfast is served in Café Felix between 07:30 and 11:00 am. Tea and coffee and an honesty bar are available in the dining room. Lunch and dinner can be reserved at Café Felix.
This is French Provencal at its best. Escape the city and soak up the peace and tranquillity of the countryside. Enjoy a fabulous breakfast, lunch or dinner under the old oak trees in the garden or courtyard. Or if there’s a little chill in the air you can be sure the old log fire will be lit inside this charming little retreat, where the smiles of the staff and the excellent fare will make you feel truly at home. The cuisine at Café Felix can be described as sumptuous French-Italian inspired country cuisine.
Café Felix is suitable to host weddings for up to about 120 people. The whole wedding package including the church, the priest, the music, the flowers, the photographer, the food, the wine, the dance and the party can be arranged. Please contact us for more information.
