Shirley and Joe started this B & B early January 2012, so everything is brand-new, beautifully designed and furnished, beds are wonderful to sleep in, personnel is really taking care of you in a personal way, they really like you!
It is a wonderful B & B.
At breakfast they pamper you. I am not a big breakfast eater, I take some bread, honey, orange jus and coffee and I feel wonderful. Shirley however is a professional cook (she had her own cooking school in Joburg, she wrote books about cooking), she loves good food and she wants to share that with you, so in the morning she wants to cook something for you, she tells you that she has wonderful trout, from the mountain waters nearby, fresh fruit from the farm next door, fresh eggs, etc. It is not a sale talk; she just wants to give you a wonderful breakfast, in fact a wonderful start of your day. What a pleasure to be treated that way.
It is worth talking with them, because they are very interesting people with lots of knowledge and experience in different areas.
This is what Fransvliet is “The perfect place to be”.
We were here in October 2012; we will stay there again in January 2013. We hope that there will be always a place for us in this paradise.
- 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
