This was our second visit to Akademie Street and this time we stayed in Vreugde (previoulsy in Uitsig). Our second visit was even better than the first time we stayed and we personally preferred Vreugde where you trade some inside space for a lovely private garden with a plunge pool. It being our second time in Franschhoek we spent a fair bit of our time relaxing in Vreugde which was a little oasis.
The breakfasts are to die for!
We also noticed some improvements that had been made from our last visit which was less than 12 months before which indicated to us that the owners are constantly investing in the quality of the accommodation. This is the only place I have stayed where expectations are exceeded and the attention to giving the guests what they want and more stands out a mile.
The owners are also such nice people that you can't help feel at home when you are there. They are a mine of information on what there is to do locally whether it be wine tasting venues, walks or restaurants.
We aim to go back there again in the next 18 months or so which is very unusual for us as we hardly ever go anywhere twice, let alone three times!
This is the best accommodation we have ever stayed at and will take some beating.
