We found this property through Tripadvisor - and we're glad we did. The McWilliam-Smiths are excellent hosts (both brimming with nervous energy and the desire to ensure you have a good time) and they have created a lovely property - which manages to be both homely (in a good way) and professionally managed.
We stayed in Gelatentheid - a superb 2 storey property with a fantastically proportioned bedroom. The adjoining garden was paradise itself. Our ONLY bugbear was the noise from the main road 20m away which tended to awaken us too early for our liking.
Franschhoek is a delightful town and this property contributes to that.
We will return.
