We had promised Shirley that we would be back. And we did return , without any hesitation. Everything was exactly as we remembered. Shirley takes care of you as if you were family. Her breakfasts are sooo good, and she gives her recipes ! Please, don't change anything, your place is heaven !

An ideal base to capture the wonderful offerings of the Franschhoek Valley, with all the comforts we required. The friendly staff took care of all our needs with a genuine smile and the perfectly executed breakfasts set us up for every days outing. You know you are in good hands when you stay at the hospitable Fransvliet guest house.

Well appointed rooms, comfortable beds, clean and large bathrooms with good finishes, all in a beautiful environment. Super breakfasts and close to so many eating options for lunch and dinner. Shirley is a wonderful host with lots of helpful tips on what to do in the area. Highly recommended.

Fransvliet is a lovely friendly guesthouse we felt part of the family. The rooms were excellent and cleaned every day. Service was great, nothing was too much trouble. Vicky was excellent at selecting places to visit and Shirley's breakfasts were superb. I would highly recommend Fransvliet to others!

We decided to stay in Fransvliet based on the reviews on Trip Advisor and can only confirm that Fransvliet is tops and ranks right up there. We stayed there for 8 days. The atmosphere at the guest house is very warm and truly hospitable. Nothing is a problem, to the contrary Victor and Vicci made our stay most pleasant. Even... More

We had very pleasant time in Fransvliet! Comfortable, peaceful room with beautiful veranda; delicious breakfasts cooked everyday from different natural ingredients (taken from nearby farm or garden). We were treated very warmly and with care. We definitely recommand this place!

Fransvliet is the perfect base for visiting the wine lands. It's just beautiful, with a great location and such an awesome atmosphere. Shirley has great tips for gastronomy and vineyards and makes the best breakfast!

Each morning starts with a difficult decision - do you want the special morning breakfast? do you want just some eggs? will you eat ALL of the wonderful crusty bread? who is going to get the chocolate croissant?? Beyond those tough decisions, nothing else is difficult about this location. The rooms are quite spacious, nicely appointed and very well maintained.... More

Just back from a exiting trip to South Africa. On our journy we had a 4 night stay in Fransvliet Guesthouse and it could not be more perfect. Breakfast, room, service and hospitality was as good as anyone could ask for. GREAT valu for money as well.
