Franschhoek Country House & Villas is a five-star hotel in the beautiful Franschhoek Valley, South Africa’s famed food and wine capital.
The original 1890 manor house has fourteen well-appointed rooms including six standard rooms, five luxury rooms, and two cottages. Each en suite room features a comfortable bedroom, a lounge area where complementary sherry is enjoyed in the afternoon, and a private balcony or patio. The double story cottages come with an en-suite bedroom downstairs, a private garden & patio area, and separate lounge upstairs with a lovely view over the surrounding vineyards. There are also twelve villa suites available in the Country House. The suites include a separate lounge, bedroom, picturesque bathroom, and two private balconies. Other amenities include a mini bar, Wi-Fi, flat screen T.V., overhead fans, air-conditioning, in-room safe, and tea and coffee maker.
Set against a stunning mountain backdrop, the hotel is located in the beautiful Franschhoek Valley. 300 years ago, French Huguenots fleeing religious persecution settled in the region and planted many of the vineyards. The Valley’s name even means French Corner. As a result, Franschhoek is a small town with impressive culinary offerings ranging from classic French cuisine to contemporary South African restaurants, English pub food, bistro fare, wood-fired pizzas, and more alongside some of the finest wine on the continent. Boutique wineries cater to guests desiring private tastings or simply an introduction to the finer points of wine-tasting. The wineries often offer museums, gardens, farm shops, restaurants, and cellar tours.
