What our clients say
“We ended up getting upgraded to a villa in Franschoek, so that was a wonderful surprise. I actually wished we could have stayed another day there, next time I guess.”

Flanked by the majestic Huguenot Mountains, the Franschhoek Country House & Villas is about an hour's drive from Cape Town. Situated in the heart of the wine-route, Franschhoek has plenty to offer. Wine tasting on the farms in the area, or in the neighbouring towns of Stellenbosch and Paarl, is a popular tourist pastime. Cape Dutch architecture, gentle walks in the valley and tales of its Huguenot heritage are all part of Franschhoek's charm.
Visit the Huguenot Monument and learn of the families who settled on land in the Cape given to them by Governor Simon van der Stel. With them, they brought their expertise in agriculture and wine-making. The wine cultivars introduced by the Huguenots have today matured into a complete range of renowned quality red and still white wines and port. Relax and enjoy the beauty of the valley in the comfort of the Franschhoek Country House & Villas.
