This is a lovely place to stay - a block of five large rooms with very comfortable beds, sofas and chairs, wood burning stove, huge bathroom, dressing/kitchen area on a farm a few kms outside Franschoek. Lovely lemon tree outside ours, pretty garden and pool. Delicious breakfasts - Victor's 'specials' are not to be missed. Victor looked after us very... More

THANK YOU to everyone at Fransvliet for an exceptional stay. Everybody was very accommodating and helpful, and helped create a memorable experience. The champagne Victor had arranged for our room was a great touch after having proposed to my girlfriend on the banks on the river below the vineyard. Sad that we could only stay one night, we will certainly... More

The location of Fransvliet guest house is perfect, not far from town but still remote enough to give you that relaxing winelands spirit. The lovely fragrant garden is well kept and gives an air of relaxation. Our room was spacious with a comfortable bed and a large bathroom and also featured a separate area with a large wardrobe, a nespresso... More

She also recommended an excellent local restaurant the French Connection . Our stay was made complete by excellent breakfasts. Great hosts Shirley and... More

An excellent guest house just outside Franschhoek. We loved our spacious room, the fire place, heated floor and -towel rail in the bathroom, luxury toiletries, coffee making facilities and the superior breakfasts.

My new wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our time at Fransvliet. It was an oasis of warmth during some bitter Franschhoek days, and what an oasis it was. From the heavenly breakfasts, that changed daily, based on local fresh ingredients available. With fresh pastries, local cheeses and freshly squeezed juices made to Victor's secret recipe. The accomodation was not 4... More

Greeted by the cold and wet weather in June, and what started off as a miserable day on the wine route turned out to be an evening to remember at Fransvliet ... with spacious rooms, warm fireplace and a great breakfast the morning after. Highly recommended!

This Guesthouse should really have a 5 star grading. You can see how much work goes into making their guests feel comfortable. Rooms are really spacious and spotless. In winter the floors are bed are heated and there is an amazing fire place in each room. Bed is super comfortable and shower pressure just right. Breakfast was amazing. Enjoy your... More
