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

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
