It is easy to be sceptical when a property uses the word “luxury” as part of its name, the adjective is so overused these days. But the apartments at Sorbonne Luxury Apartments live up to their claim, they really are luxurious. We stayed in apartment #10 and it was simply gorgeous. The two bedroom, two bathroom apartment had all of the modern amenities one could expect or want: fully functioning kitchen with top-notch appliances and marble countertops, air conditioning for those hot Franschhoek summers, a fireplace and heated floors for chilly evenings. The décor was elegant and it really made you feel as if you were coming home to your own apartment as opposed to some holiday accommodation. The location is also wonderful, easy walking distance into the village of Franschhoek and on a quiet street. The absolute highlight of our stay at Sorbonne was Riette the property manager. She is an absolute treasure with such a welcoming personality. She made sure everything was perfectly taken care of, gave us some excellent tips of where to wine and dine in Franschhoek and welcomed us as if we were long-time friends. We are looking forward to coming back to Franschhoek again and we will definitely be staying at the Sorbonne!
