The original, 1847 manor house on the Fancourt site is now a national monument, yet lives on as part of a tranquil, contemporary resort with a strong sense of style inspired by its own history. Set in the heart of the Garden Route with the Outeniqua Mountains as a backdrop, the setting for the Fancourt is lovely, and the resort itself is landscaped to be a part of the scenery.
Landscaped gardens that gently dip and curve revealing the dramatic peaks of the mountains, perhaps a pool or a babbling fountain, surround the most magnificent leisure facilities. Two 18-hole Gary Player-designed championship golf courses - with world class conditioning - meet the exacting requirements of champions as well as the specialised needs of the improving golfer - needs that are followed up superbly in the wonderfully well-equipped Golf warm-up area and Golf School. Here a team of highly trained professionals will assist with the improvement of all aspects of the game using a wide variety of modern and traditional teaching aids.
Each golf lesson is videoed to ensure that the learning continues even after you have left Fancourt! Four tennis courts, a squash court, lawn bowls and two outdoor swimming pools are also included in the outstanding sports facilities.
After a hard game you might wish to repair to the Health and Beauty Pavilion where magnificent double-height windows allow you to gaze at the mountains as you swim in the heated Roman Bath. The Morning Glory Restaurant, saunas, steam rooms, jacuzzi, a sophisticated gym, and a wide range of personalised treatments are equally tempting. A Leisure Centre runs a programme of films for both children and adults and houses the Children's Care Centre.
Accommodation and dining are equally luxurious. One hundred bedrooms and suites provide a variety of ambiences and views for the guests. Most of the Garden Suites, for example, overlook the golf course and are decorated in a fresh modern style. A variety of gourmet restaurants is available. The Montagu, located in the old Manor House, serves fresh local produce, prepared in a sophisticated style. La Cantina specialises in authentic Italian fare whereas the Grill Room prepares food in an open kitchen.
Fancourt is ideal for golfers and sportspeople - but also provides a blissfully relaxing holiday for those who just wish to "chill out" by unwinding in a beautiful and stress-free environment.
