We enjoyed the experience of staying in this spacious family farmhouse amongst fields of grapes with guinea fowl running around. It is well located close to the centre of Franschhoek near the Huguenot memorial but extremely quiet with beautiful mountain views in all directions. Grace was very helpful and kind in answering our many questions about the area. Guests have...

A great quiet place to stay with the most magnificent breakfast view I think I've ever had. Loved the hosts who were chatty and very hospitable. Room, for 4, was most comfortable and very easy access at the end of the night without disturbing others. Easy walk to town and we found a great restaurant for dinner. Dom Pedro's (recently...

We stayed here for 3 nights in December and had a fantastic stay. The location of the guesthouse is really convenient and is a stones throw from away Franschoek. We were staying with another couple and 2 young babies and the owners of the guesthouse went out of their way to help us with the little ones. The breakfast was...

A welcoming guest house in a great position in Franschhoek - this last weekend was my 6th stay here. The beds are comfortable, the rooms very clean, and the views from gardens are wonderful. It is easy walking distance to the main street and all the great restaurants that Franschhoek has to offer - and don't miss out on a...

We stayed here for two nights on our way to Cape Town. We were greeted warmly by the owners who could not do enough for us. The rooms are spacious and spotlessly clean. I recommend requesting the room with the pool view as the scenery is just breathtaking. The restaurants in the area are superb, however we found ourselves just...

Second stop after being recommended as a perfect location for wine route and didnt disappoint. Very clean and welcoming and lovely breakfast. Good location, easy walk to town for bars and shops. Not a boutique hotel but a homely old fashioned guest house. Will definitely be back.

Myself and my girlfriend were looking for a place to stay in Franschhoek for the long weekend and everything was booked out...until we came across Cape Vue Guest House. It is honestly a 2 minute walk from the main road (And all the attractions) and situated on the most beautiful vineyard. Grace and Michael are the most accommodating and friendly...

I was looking for a place in Franshhoek for a nice weekend away with my partner that wasn't exorbitantly priced and stumbled across Cape Vue on Tripadvisor. Very glad I did! Incredibly nice for the price and so close to town. We were able to walk into town for dinner. Very convenient, clean and breakfast included! Best place in town...

Grace is a lovely, friendly lady. Great accomodation, beautiful surroudings! when we stayed here the weather was really bad. I can imagine this place looks and feels like paradise when the sun is shining! Lots of things to do in the wine region. We went for example for a picknick at Warwick Wine Club (very relaxing) and visited a bird...

Franschhoek is on vogue. Hotels, guesthouses and restaurants are top but price are going up, especially for accomodation. Cape Vue is one of the remaining 3 star guest houses but can clearly compete with 4 star places. Situiated close to the Hugenotte monument it is the perfect place to walk into the village and have dinner with lovely wine from...
