We stayed in two of the 4 small self-catering cottages (for 2-3 people each) on the edge of Franschoek. The setting is wonderful with mountains on one side and your own private nature reserve on the other. Wake up in the morning and eat your cornflakes on the patio, watching the zebras and wildebeest having their morning drink with the... More

Good basic accommodation, everything you need in a self catering establishment. Was a clear night with great starry sky surrounded by beautiful mountains and lots of good wine. All family males having a BBQ after a day of wine tasting in the area. Had left overs for breakfast. Very good value for money.

What a lovely quaint little cottage in the foothills of the mountains! Gorgeous scenery, beautiful horses nearby and they have some game- zebra, wildebeest etc that you can watch from your back porch whilst enjoying the sounds of nature. Bed was very comfortable and it was just lovely all round. 10 minute drive from Town and very close to some... More

What a fantastic experience....a gamefarm and tranquility at its best just a few km from the bustling city. A real breakaway, chilling on the stoep with various buck species within 50meters of where you are sitting. Well equiped cottages, well maintained and clean. Decor really fits the setting and perfect for the location. Interesting walks in the mountain and around... More

Great ambiance, wonderful establishment, clean and safe. My wife and I had shared an amazing experience to celebrate our union as well as her birthday. Pleasure to see the game (Zebras, Gemsboks, GNU, other wild life animals) roaming freely....beautiful scenery.

Franschhoek Country Cottages are located a short drive outside of Franschhoek nestled within the mountains in a very quiet location. The small selection of game in the enclosure that the four cottages look over is a nice touch. Each cottage has a well equipped kitchen with a small oven and also a braai area on the patio. It was quite... More

Our cottage was very comfortable and quiet with nice decor, lovely wood burning fireplace (with wood & matches) provided. The kitchen was kitted with pretty much everything you would need for self catering. The only negatives I have are the following - * There was no meet and greet * Very limited hot water * no newspaper or such to... More

The wife and I decided to get out of the city for a weekend, and I booked us into the Country Cottages. Least to say, it was fantastic. With the animals right at your doorstep, and those views that simply take your breath away, there was no better way to unwind. With a cosy fireplace at night, we were falling... More

Peaceful and quaint. Great location, very relaxing. Well equipped and comfortable Would definitely return. If youre looking for hustle and bustle this is not the place. Located in a mini nature reserve these cottages provide a tranquil and relaxing base to explore the Franschoek scene.

Our experience in dealing with Tonya was great. We arrived at the place mid-afternoon, and found everything in place. We were in cottage no 1. The cottage was spotless, and it was certainly comfortable. Watching the animals was very relaxing. The baby springbok was the most entertaining of all. We would highly recommend this place as a weekend away from... More
