An Idyllic Forest Wedding Experience in the Heart of the Garden Route 

 The Venue at  Idille will be closed for  2017  until  further  notice.

The Venue at Idille, situated on a 70h Private Estate in the George area, Western Cape, offers unbeatable value for money with breathtaking views of the exquisite indigenous Knysna Forest and spectacular Outeniqua Mountains. The bridal couple can be assured that their guests will be equally charmed by this exclusive Wedding Venue that offers a rustic, farm like, elegant and fresh ambience.

The journey to Idille – nestled between the Kaaimans and Silver Rivers with beautiful old bridges dated 1904 – begins with the meandering historical forest tarred road, built by Thomas Bain in 1886, only 8 km from George and Wilderness on the old George / Knysna Road

The picturesque venue seats up to 140 people. On lovely summer days the venue’s big glass sliding doors opens onto a deck and terrace and invites nature and forest into the venue.  For colder and chilly days with rolling mist over the mountains, the glass doors still offer a forest and mountain view with a beautiful mantelpiece and fireplace creating a warm and cosy atmosphere.

Venue price includes white tables and chairs, white floor length table cloths, napkins, plates, cutlery, glasses, cake table, gift table and more. The dance floor is 6m x 6m and is built over a swimming pool with safety rail.
