Our new Library

On 12 January La Récoltes Library’s doors opened, this new addition to our clubhouse gives our residents the opportunity to relax, catch up on some reading and to socialize.

Getting the Library set up was a huge undertaking, however Maggie Joubert and her team Carine van Vuuren, Elbie du Toit and Lorna Bredenham was up for the task and the end result was a well put together library that can be enjoyed by all our residents.

The library operates on Mondays, Wednesdays & Fridays from 09:00 - 12:00


Block D Launch

On 26 January La Récolte launched Block D.

This grand occasion was celebrated with a selection of food and snacks.

Our developer Jaco Steyn started the proceedings, followed by our Chairman, Eugene Jooste, Jessica Kolver from C4 Property, Western Province Catering, Van Biljon Nursing and MHI Attorneys.


Social Events at La Récolte

Since the opening of our Clubhouse La Vue we have arranged quite a few social events, giving our residents the opportunity to indulge and be entertained!


On 24 January CCH Production’s Singing Chef’s entertained us with their first performance. Coffee, tea and a sweet treat was served by WPC. We are looking forward to see more of them this year!

Residential Talent

Talented Poet Sunette du Plessis entertained our residents with humor and poetry at La Vue. Snacks and drinks were served by WPC.


At La Récolte we create occasions for our residents to socialize, and nothing brings people together like good food!

Western Province Catering hosted a scone and coffee special, followed by a milkshake day at La Vue. "Food tastes better when you eat it in the company of family or friends"
