We stayed in the 'Manor House' at Rickety Bridge, what a beautiful house. There are only 3 bedrooms in the manor house which makes it feel like home (within the grounds there is further accomodation) The attention to detail is perfect. Nothing was too much trouble for Martha the housekeeper, she was a little gem. A must is to have... More

The restaurant was the best experience so far in Franschhoek. The menu is nice, they challenge you to take half portions and share so you can taste as much different items as you wanted. It... More
