Maison de L’amour

Our Most Important House Rules

As a guest in our home, we insist, beyond all else, that you “Recover ‘Your Zen,’ Relax, Sleep in, Share a Good Meal, Laugh, Heal, Inspire, Feel Soul, Fully Desire – & DO LIVE!”

Maison de L’amour offers the experience of staying in a private country residence more like home from home.

Maison de L’amour has a very romantic feel and offers three double guest bedrooms all with bathrooms en- suite.

The Honeymoon suite, with en suite open plan round bath, very high ceilings with chandeliers and silk curtains.

A double luxury room with en suite shower is located inside the main house

Gardener’s Cottage, a luxury double room with lounge area located outside the main house.

Maison de L’amour is located at 21 Mount Pleasant Street in Darling. The setting of Maison de L’amour is decorated in a French Provence country style and overlooks a garden which is picturesque and tranquil where our guests will have their breakfast and can unwind and feel completely relaxed.

We also offer different dining experiences on some of the evenings of the week (depending on bookings) and our home-cooked dinners will prove to be popular with our guests for our take on the South African and European classics and the use of fresh seasonal ingredients. We offer three-course candle-lit dinners in the picturesque garden on Fridays and Saturdays, we also offer the use of our Braai area, plunge pool to the guests should they feel like catering for themselves or they could privately book us to prepare and cater for their personal needs at an extra charge per head.

We are situated in the heart of Darling, and we are within an easy reach of the famous Darling winery’s, such being Cloof Wine Estate, Darling Cellars, Groote Post, Ormonde Vineyards, Withington Wines. Guests can explore the little village on foot, browse through antiques and collectibles and visit Darling’s biggest attraction the famous Evita Se Perron show which is not to be missed! In season we are within easy distance of the most beautiful flowers in the flower season.

Maison de Lamour is owned and run by Nina and Derek Poole, a couple full of fun and laughter, who love entertaining their guests.
