I am a "local" and therefore do not frequent guest houses in the winelands frequently. But my wife and I spent a night in this guest house on our honeymoon. What a pleasure. The rooms are private, clean, spacious and tastefully decorated. The guest house is peaceful: there are not many other guests, making the breakfast table feel almost private... More

Lovely, modern and clean guesthouse. Excellent breakfast eaten on the patio. Owner was very helpful. Close to the towns main road but far away enough to not be noisy. Very tranquil. Would definitely recommend.

Breakfast was fresh and the choice of fruits,... More

Very comfortable room with balcony. Pleasant surroundings and helpful suggestions for restaurants. Nice to have breakfast on the patio overlooking the pool. It is best to have car to enjoy Franschhoek and the surrounding vineyards.

We stayed for two nights, which was just right to sample the delights of Franschhoek in terms of restaurants and wine farms. We were delighted with the beautiful house, bedroom, and terrace of Maison d'Ail along with the generosity and welcome from the owners and hosts. It really is a beautiful, tranquil and luxurious place: a real treat. We stayed... More

We stayed one night at this beautiful guesthouse at Franschhoek. The owner and his wife were very welcoming and made are check-in really smooth. We got a great tip to have lunch and enjoyed our day. The next morning we had to leave really early so we didn't had time to enjoy the breakfast. I can really recommend this place... More

Lovely building. The rooms are large and very nicely decorated in a modern style. They included amenities such as pool towels and robes which was a very nice touch. I was in an upstairs room which had a lovely view of the mountains and was very quiet. There is a pool which is great for relaxing by. Everything was very... More
