We ended our month long African safari at Fransvliet Guest House in Franschoek. We arrived looking rather scruffy and were welcomed warmly. Our room was huge and sparkling clean and the bathroom was well equipped with wonderful toiletries that even my husband enjoyed using. Everything about this guest house makes you feel like a very special visitor - from the enthusiastic dogs to Victor's smile in the morning as he brings you your freshly prepared juice (my favorite was carrot and apple), wonderfully creamy scrambled eggs with smoked salmon and coffee that will keep you going through multiple wine tastings! Shirley, the owner, suggested one of the best restaurants we ate at in South Africa (Ryan's Kitchen) and made sure we found some of the best wineries for our explorations. We were in very good hands with our hostess and would highly recommend this new gem to travelers in this area.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Fransvliet Guest House is a tranquil, luxury retreat, only 4 kilometres from the heart of Franschhoek.It is situated on a working farm, growing grapes, olives and figs. Wake up to the call of the birds and in the evening perhaps hear the resident owls calling as they contemplate the night's hunt. Breathtaking mountain views are all around, each one more spectacular than the last. The individually decorated suites are pure luxury, with absolute attention to detail. Soft wineland colours set the tone for a perfect stay. Breakfast is an occasion, every day. Spend time in the newly renovated 65 year old house, either inside or on the veranda, enjoying the view of the pool and the vineyards. Celebrate "the best meal of the day" with either a Continental or a full breakfast that will include seasonal specials. The sparkling pool is at your disposal for those hot lazy afternoons. Relax in the shade with a magazine and an ice cold drink, before you cool off. Lazy winter days are a treat too. Snuggle up in your suite in a comfy armchair with your own personal fireplace - the perfect way to enjoy one of the local bottles of red wine. Meander through the garden, (both indigenous and other) on your way to your suite. Something special will be flowering at all times. In season, luscious figs will be found on the trees, and the scent of lemons may be in the air too. Take an early morning walk around the farm in December. The vines will be green and laden with fruit. In July, a few burgundy coloured leaves and bare sticks have their own attraction. Soak up the 360° view, especially the powerful Simonsberg mountains. ... more less
