About us

The aptly named ‘La Rose Des Vents’ or in English; The Wind Compass, is a nautical term adopted by the owners due to their love of the ocean. The name carries the same old world nostalgia and romanticism as the sense one experiences when on the premises, a feeling of coming home or finding a place meant for you.

This is a family farm situated on the Natal Midlands, on the D494 near the Hilton road turnoff, with wonderful established gardens and excellent views across the Umgeni Valley and of the Drakensberg range on the Horizon. You don’t need much imagination to believe you might be on the prow of an immense yacht when the mist roles in, separates you from reality and creates a quiet hilltop sanctuary perfect for making memories.

‘La Rose’ is the most recent venture by the family and is a wedding and events venue, set close enough to Pietermaritzburg to not be too far from civilisation. The property is also just far enough from Johannesburg to feel like you have escaped the city altogether.

The venue offers a blank canvas for any and all gatherings, lending itself with dexterity to any occasion. The venue offers the assistance of their in house Chef and Function coordinator who will design the venue, event and menu to suit your unique requirements. Alternatively, the venue is available to be booked as is and catered and dressed independently.

We look forward to hosting you.
