We could not have found a more enjoyable place to relax. This is the style of mansion one would like to get accustomed to... lots of space, one of the most beautiful gardens we have ever been to and a breathtaking view of the mountains. Extremely quiet and relaxing. The hosts (German expats) seem to enjoy nothing more than pampering guests - the sensational breakfast alone is amazing.
Our favorite spot: the large swing next to the pool. We could have spent days there. (Only we had to get up and eat every now and then.)
There are some adorable cats there but no children which makes the place extra quiet and relaxing.

We chose Franschhoek Manor for our honeymoon destination. It was perfect! The rooms were lavishly decorated and kept. The service was beyond excellent as well as friendly and accomodating. The breakfasts were scrumptious! The gardens were manicured to a high standard and the views were spectacular! We will definately be going back in the future - it is the perfect place to stay while exploring the winelands.

Franschhoek Manor is our number one choice for a getaway in the winelands, the exquisite Manor with the mountainous surroundings, paints the most beautiful scenery. the Management and Staff are friendly and helpful, making you feel completely at home. Accommodation in the Blue room was the best ever, complemented with a delicious breakfast each morning. My fiancé and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and we will definitely go back in future and highly recommend Franschhoek Manor to anybody seeking accommodation in the area.

Lovely room, large bathroom with separate bath and shower, beautiful grounds to enjoy, pool, swing seat, plenty of sun loungers and chairs, delightful staff, the most scrumptious breakfast. You could walk into town at a push, but we enjoyed having a car to increase flexibility. Only drawback is lack of wireless internet -

It is worth trying to lead a perfect life to try and secure a place in heaven for I expect it is just like Franschhoek Manor where we stayed for 2 weeks in february 2010

The nroom were furnished with very much love to the details and the garden with the the big pool ist very nice.

The location in Franschoek is a little bit outside of the city. So there is no traffic or noise, but you ca walk in about 5 minutes to the city with a few nice shops and verx nice restaurants
