From the moment lovely Anna checked us in, we were transfixed with the simple, quiet elegance of this wonderful BnB right in the heart of Franschhoek. She booked us at a perfect bistro within moments and all we had to do was relax in the spacious, comfortable, well-stocked room. Host Justin helped arrange a winery tour the next morning after...

Top marks for this place for a number of reasons; - Justin, Anna and the team are excellent hosts. They made our stay very relaxing.
