Really if you would seek a place that fills all expectations, it is here. The accommodation is stunning, gardens & trees just magic, service friendly & good! The champagne in our room was perfect for breakfast and our hosts are charming, interesting & attentive! Thank you all for a magical stay!

We stayed here in Uitsig for three nights in the middle of our trip to South Africa. From the warm welcome from Jess to the end of our stay it was perfect. Our room was beautiful, so much space and views to die for. Breakfasts were delicious; we loved the fruit platter. It seemed to echo the artistic approach throughout the guesthouse. Cafe d'Art for dinner was excellent. The trip to La Motte wonderful and we just enjoyed meandering through the lovely town.
A very special hotel and we would love to return.

This was our second port of call on a months stay in SA.Akademie is situated just off the main street very near the centre of this charming little town.Easy walk to museum and the restaurants.It is faultless!! Someone has put a lot of thought and effort into this little guest house.The rooms are immaculate,everything is included in the price,with a well stocked mini bar and snacks.Fruit and flowers on arrival.Breakfast around the pool in the courtyard with homemade everything.Loved it!

We had three nights here in November 2013 and could not have been treated better. The managers and staff were all so friendly and could not do enough for us. The breakfast was first class and dinners out were booked for us. Would always come back to this home because that is what it is A HOME

Room Tip: All the rooms were good

The couple who own this hotel make you feel very at home as if you're staying in their personal home which is a really welcoming atmosphere. Not silly minibar charges as it's all free and they recommended a superb wine tour and horse riding trip for us which they booked and sorted out. Fantastic little dog and a delicious home cooked breakfast every morning. You can walk onto the Main Street in about 5 minutes and drive to nearby vineyards very easily. Great place to stay!

We really loved our 2 night stay at Akademie Street.
We stayed in Vreugde which is lovely accommodation next to the main house, with its own beautiful private garden and plunge pool.
Vreugde is a small 2 roomed house which was very cute and comfortable.
The breakfasts were excellent with the owners looking after you.
Nothing was too much trouble from organising restaurants to printing off directions to our next destination.
Franschhoek itself is a very nice small town with a high street packed full of interesting and quality shops, bars and restaurants.
The highlight for us though was meeting ANNA their gorgeous Black lab who we took for a long walk in Franschhoek .
We would highly recommend this boutique guest house.

Fine place, lovely owners and staff!! The breakfast was sublime, the rooms were very nice, loved the stay here, not too crowded, if you need some privacy it's fantastic! Also good for a small family. The restaurants of Fraschhoek are in walking distence
