Welcome to Villa Avianto

Our own slice of Provence in the heart of the Free State

About Villa Avianto

Situated on a 5 hectare estate on a hillside in Quaggafontein outside Bloemfontein, next to the N8 and N1. The peaceful atmosphere emphasises the meaning of Villa Avianto’s name as “House of the Heavens”.

It offers a unique Tuscan ambiance with formal gardens and fountains blending seamlessly with the surrounding environment where you can escape from the everyday hustle to relaxed comfort.

French Market

Our Journey

Villa Avianto presented the first French Market in October of 2008, With 8 exhibitors and 120 guests. Since then the market has evolved into a French get together with the most delicious food and music.

The French Market focuses on quality products made and developed by local artists. Come and enjoy a European feeling with good food, beautiful music and designer clothing in the heart of the beautiful Freestate.

Food Market

Our Food Market

We believe in the wholehearted celebration of food, friendship and culture.

The Cultural Food Market is a place where young and old can enjoy each other’s company around long tables with ambient live music in the background.

Here you can explore tastes and flavours from all over the globe while learning to love cultures that you might never have known before.

Upcoming Food Market




In a world where our schedules are controlled by the business of everyday life we still believe that life should be thoroughly enjoyed… Slowly savoured like a glass of lemonade after a long summer’s day… Deeply experienced like a crackling fireplace while the winter rages outside.

Villa Avianto see every function as an opportunity to celebrate and express the beauty of our Creator in the big and small details on the peaceful backdrop of our homemade French countryside
