Every winter my wife a I look for a nice quiet place to spend a long weekend that is not to far from Cape Town and is close to good eateries, and must accommodate a small child. We always seem to land up in Franschhoek as it ticks all the boxes. This time we decided to spend a little more... More

I was treated to a weekend stay here for the Bastille weekend. Beautiful, luxurious hotel, we stayed in one of the villa suites which are very private and spacious. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

The Country House is set on the edge of town just off the main road. The courtyard has a central water fountain and great views of the surrounding mountains. The rooms are built around this central court yard. The rooms are quite elegant and tasteful. The entry way opens into a living room with a beautiful couch set in front... More

Villa Suites - perfect setting if you want to spend quality time, whether as a couple or family. My Dad and Mom stayed in another Villa. Due to the separate lounge and patio in each villa we could chat away and still feel like we're on holiday.

We booked a suite that was a nice size, but ours had seen better days. The carpet had spots, one chair had a huge water stain as did the carpet around it, and one of the light switches was so encrusted with gunk that I hated to touch it. We had a bad start at check-in with the front desk... More

We went there on business, and the staff made up the venue exactly to our liking. We had our session sitting on comfortable lounge suites with a fire burning. The conference room was turned into a warm, inviting, comfortable setting, totally conducive to the topic we were discussing. The staff exceeded our expectations. The rooms and villas absolutely stunning. The... More

Franschhoek was our second stop on a two week South African tour. My husband, sister-in-law, and I drove to Franschhoek from Cape Town and stayed at Franschhoek Country House & Villas for 3 nights. We arrived in the evening and the first night we had dinner at the onsite restaurant Monneaux. It was one of the best meals we had... More

Stayed here in a Villa for three night after CapeTown. The room was very spacious and well appointed, very comfortable. The bathroom is as large as some hotel bedrooms, very luxurious. The Villas are set in a beautiful garden with lemons everywhere. Could not fault the restaurant so we ate there for all meals. The only down side was that... More

We stayed four nights at the Country House and Villas in Franschhoek. We enjoyed a ground floor villa which was beyond our expectation, large and well appointed. The staff made our every wish or need a priority making the service exceptional. We found the restaurant to be of the finest caliber with a well trained wait staff, food beautifully presented...

We had three rooms at Franschhoek Country House and Villa...all with amazing views. Excellent location out of the bustle of downtown but still a beautiful easy stroll to the stores and restaurants. All three accomodations were fantastic. One room had a balcony overlooking the pool. The best room was a two room suite which was HUGE in the villa section.... More
