“We discovered a little bit of Paradise”
Reviewed March 30, 2011

We had a wonderful relaxing holiday, staying in a lovely comfortable chalet, with all amenities and set in an enchanting location, with the forest on the doorstep with lovely walks. The bedrooms, both en-suite were clean and comfortable with lovely views over the garden and forest. It is a nature lovers paradise.
We enjoyed the visits from the resident dogs, so obedient and well behaved, and the plum chicks who came to visit daily.
Thank you Sue and Stephen for your welcome, and enlightenment in to forest management, so interesting. ,,e had a wonderful stay, we will be back, hopefully very soon.

Room Tip: Only two chalets, both with the same layout.

Four of us stayed in one of the two lodges in the gardens at Franverleigh. The location is absolutely stunning - fabulous views, beautiful gardens, acres of forest to explore and very tranquil. The lodge has two double bedrooms, both with en suite bathrooms and is fully equipped for self catering. Our hosts, Steve and Sue could not have been more welcoming and as this was our first visit to Africa, full of helpful advice. Franverleigh is a about 10 miles north of the main N2 road between Sedgefield and Knysna and a car is essential. However, the drive into Knysna is very scenic and easy and this delightful town has shops for everything and banks to provide the means. Franverleigh really is an exceptional place to stay.

Sue and Steve were excellent and welcoming hosts with loads of useful information on the area and South Africa in general.
The self contained chalet was perfect for our needs (4 adults) with total privacy but close enough to our hosts and the site swimming pool to make for a comfortable stay. The property has extensive forests and provides some interesting bush walks (the trip down to the river in particular!!).
With transport, Franverleigh is easily accessible to surrounding beaches and mountains and is central to all the Garden Route's major attractions.
We can thorroughly recommend Franverleigh to anyone seeking private, self-contained and safe accommodation in beautiful surroundings on the Garden Route in this stunning part of the Western Cape region.
