“Stunning - an equal of any view in the Alps / New Zealand...”
Review of Franschhoek Pass

As you drive up towards Franschoek from Villiersdorp the view could be anywhere in the world, the views are great but not inspiring...

Then you reach the summit and your eyes open awide... A carpet of lush, green beauty...

The view from the summit of the pass looking north over Franschoek is one of the best I have winessed...

No camera could do the view justice.

A must view... do not miss this.

I always find that the beauty of the Franschhoek valley viewed from the pass is priceless. You stand up there on the mountain pass and look down up on the valley spread in front of you like a very beautiful blanket, gree and lushy, quite and calm.

I just put my camera away and enjoyed the non stop jaw dropping views. It took quite a while as we took a circuitous route from Hermanus but it was unbelievably beautiful.

This is a must for all visitors to the Franschhoek area. The scenery is beautiful and the road is in a good condition. Beautiful flora to be seen along the route.

Great views from the rest stops/ lay-byes. Worth stopping and enjoying the View of Franschoek and the valley beyond. We took a couple of grape juices which we declined to share with the baboons that were feeding and cavorting around us.
