We stayed here for two nights in the two bed family villa and didnt want to leave. The villa is absolutely wondeful full of original period features, with the open fire for the cold evenings being a hidden treat. The view immediately onto the vineyards and mountains is spectacular , it has it's own pool and a huge terrace where I can imagine many a gorgeous evening has been spent.
We have stayed in may places in Franschoek but wanted somewhere where we could feel completely at ease whilst travelling with two youngish children and this was definately it. From the list of family friendly things to do in the area down to the driving directions everytime we needed them the service couldnt have been better.
We wont stay anywhere else in future

We stayed 4 nights in the honeymoon suite in order to have enough space for the kids. While were there, we were told that there is a separate Villa with more separate rooms and own swimming pool available for families. This has the advantage of having the young ones in a different room than the parents stay in.

When we opened our room door in the morning a terrific view on the vineyards of Auberge Clermont and the mountains further away opened up. The B&B has plenty of outside space with beautiful sitting areas under a 300 year old oak tree, in between flower beds, etc. The swimming pool area is pleasant but the pool is cold (probably because we were here in spring).
The staff is very friendly and helpful and tries to make everything possible. Breakfast is delicious and varies. You can also choose from a menue. For breakfast you can choose to sit in- or outside.
Auberge Clermont is very close to the Hugenot museum and a 10min walk away from the main street. Very nice vine estates (L'Ormond, La Grande Provence, La petite ferme) can be reached within a few minutes drive.

When we come back to South Africa Auberge Clermont will be a place we will definitely return to.

Auberge Clermont came recommended to us by people in the Trip Advisor forums and must say that it was one of the best places we stayed in South Africa.

The rooms are awesome - we stayed in the honeymoon suite. You can see that the decor is very thought through and the whole setting is just wonderful.

The staff are very helpful - helped us book restaurants, suggested vineyards to visit etc. All the restaurant recommendations were on the spot.

Not far from the main street in Franschhoek but probably needs a drive rather than a walk.

Auberge Clermont is situated just a few seconds (by car) away from Franschhoek's main road, settled in the heart of the wine country, in the middle of a vineyard. The garden is beautiful and very relaxing, the surroundings are beautiful! Rooms are beautifully decorated, breakfast was very good, staff very friendly - absolutely recommended!

I recently stayed here with my husband and another couple. We had a wonderful time in this beautiful area! The house is fantastic with luxury suites complete with big comfy beds and below floor heating. The location is perfect, within easy driving distance from the main town as well as quick access to Paarl and Stellenbosch. The service from Stephan and Jane was fantastic! They were always there to make dinner reservations, suggest hiking and winery locations, and even help with preparations for our last minute picnic in the main sitting area. Every wish was granted with a smile!

We found the Auberge Clermont to be an outstanding B&B in all aspects. Its location in a vineyard just outside Franschhoek was ideal, with views of the mountains all around. Our bedroom was one of the loft rooms, airy, very spacious and beautifully furnished with a large ensuite bathroom. Breakfasts were excellent and the staff very attentive and helpful. We were just sorry we only had two nights here before moving on. We would love to return.

Excellent guest house, we were on our honeymoon, had a large room in the loft, great views, lovely letter left for us on our arrival welcoming us and congradulating us, complimentary wine. House set in a lovely tranquil area, great views of the countryside and the hills surroundingFranschhoek. Very close to horse riding stables, vineyards and the restaurants.
Stayed 2 nights, would have loved to have stayed longer. Staff were very nice, they aranged a picnic for us to take away with us on our final day, providing wine, there own plates and coutlary, wet towels and 2 bags of food, that consisted off everything. We be back to stay there again on my next trip to South Africa.

Auberge Clermont is a luxury guest house situated at the foot of the Franschhoek Mountains, on a picturesque wine and olive farm.

Tastefully decorated rooms each reflect the tranquility of peaceful surroundings. Rooms offer mini-bars, coffee machines and tea trays; with small extra touches to make your stay even more enjoyable. Climate control in each room includes air conditioning and under floor heating in winter to ensure your utmost comfort. Free high speed wifi is available in all the rooms, the self-catering villa and the public lounge - which is also where our delicious Sauvignon Blanc, Shiraz and award-winning olive oil are available for purchase. In summer, delicious breakfasts are served in the courtyard under a grand old oak & in winter guests dine in the breakfast room. If you feel like taking things slowly, laze under another old oak tree with a book,or by the pool, whilst enjoying the incredibly beautiful scenery. Or, you could go for a gentle stroll amongst plum orchards, olive groves and vines to where a gentle brook winds its way across the farm. If you're feeling slightly more energetic, a game of tennis might just do the trick. Of course, we offer advice and recommendations on the best places to visit in the valley and will provide you with everything you need to find your way around town and to wonderful local wineries, restaurants and places of interest. Our dedicated team looks forward to welcoming you! ... more   less
