When the Breugem family left the Netherlands and in 1976 settled in the Drakenstein Valley, with its white gables and proud oak trees, they inherited a legacy of secrets and legends from the French Huguenots. Eben-Haëzer, surrounded by majestic mountains and guarded by dazzling stars and the Southern Cross, became the ideal setting for Cors and Louise’s flower nursery. In picturesque Donkerkloof, just a stone’s throw away, their eight children could enjoy God’s beautiful nature and experience His protection under giant tree ferns, waterfalls and graceful disas.

The family lovingly restored the 1837 Cape Dutch homestead and outbuildings into an elegant and luxuriously welcoming B&B. The rustic charm of the wedding venue is complete with French doors opening onto a beautiful rose garden and overlooks fountains, old oak trees and a view of breathtaking mountains beyond. The bride is announced by the ringing of the antique bell in the chapel tower, and after the wedding the couple can relax in the romantic honeymoon cottage.

The venue’s motto ‘Faith, Hope and Love’ is a testimony to the family’s spiritual strength, as is the acknowledgement in the name Eben-Haëzer (Stone of Hope) from 1 Samuel 7:12, which states:‘Thus far the Lord has helped us’
