“Lovely place with unbelievable views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2012

We stayed in the Olive Cottage for two nights, and wanted to spend every free minute outside on the patio or in the infinity pool, enjoying the stunning views and the scent of the lavender. The cottage was comfortably equipped with linens and kitchen items, and we definitely would have enjoyed a longer stay! Claire was available for anything we needed!

Stayed in Lavender Cottage at Bluberry Hill. Disappointed to only have a one night stay; it would be very easy to spend much much longer in such a lovely place. The real treat at Blueberry Hill is the spectacular view - you would do well to find accommodation anywhere with such a beautiful view. The cottage itself was very homely, clean and had generously sized bedrooms. Claire was a fantastic host and offered very good and accurate advice. The only downside to the cottage would arise if you wanted to walk into the town centre, albeit only a couple of miles away (down the hillside). However, this was certainly a real gem to find!

Lavender grows like weeds in this place. Its amazing. Stayed in Lavender cottage at Blueberry Hill. A very charming spot nestled between lush plants looking out over your own vineyard with mountains surrounding it all. It was casual but smart which is a breath of fresh air in Franschoek. Kitchen, 3 bedroom, Fireplace, Patio, courtyard, braai. Fantastic swimming pool too. A great place to unwind. Far enough from the villiage of Franschoek to feel "away from it all" but only a 15 minute walk into town. A 3 minute drive if you feeling too lazy to walk. Hosts Claire and Johan were totally helpful and kind. Great hosts. Totally recommended. We will be back... with friends :)

Blueberry Hill Cottages are a special find. We stayed in Lavender Cottage which is a charmingly decorated three-bedroom cottage with two bathrooms and fireplace. The cottages are located on a wine farm and overlook the vineyard and the Drakenstein mountains. There's plenty of space to enjoy as there is a lovely courtyard in the back and big veranda in the front. The new resident managers will do whatever they can to make your stay most pleasant. We were there for three days and wish we'd booked for longer.
