Traveller Reviews

  • Very nice accommodation and service as usual. Spent very little time there and had to leave before breakfast. We enjoyed the wine tram in Franschhoek and spent our afternoon doing that. Very nice restaurants too.

    John Cote, September 2014
  • The Franschoek country house and villas was nice but their restaurant Monneau was even better. For French gourmets that’s not a small thumbs up !

    Bernard Fanchette, May 2014
  • Franschoek was a quiet time for us . It's a small wine town. We did enjoy the environment and ambiance of this Villa. These places are ideal for newlyweds.

    Sharon Carpenter, April 2014
  • The Franschhoek Country House and Villas is a spectacular property. We felt as if we were in the south of France. The accommodations were five star as were the grounds. We had a wonderful day of rest by the fire during our first day of arrival as it poured raining. The following day was an eventful day of wine tasting with an entertaining, polite and knowledgable guide who made it a lasting experience. We toured a local chocolate factory and had a marvelous lunch at one of our tasting venues. A visit to South Africa would not have been complete without a trip to Franschhoek and anything less than the Country House and Villas would have been a great disappointment.

    Bob & Loretta Brenneman, April 2014
  • Franchoek was even better. Villas were very nice and the hospitality was great. We even took advantage of the spa there.

    Bob & Loretta Brenneman, April 2014
  • We drove through the Winelands from Cape Town(very scenic drive!) and stayed at this Guest house for a night. We did some wine tasting at Rickety Bridge Vinery during the day which was really cool, and purchased a few bottles of plonk. We also visited a classic cars museum, and explored the town.(cool market stalls/shops). The staff were also very helpful at advising nice places to visit in the area. The accommodation was very luxurious, and the food was excellent.

    Jennifer Keenlyside, February 2014
  • Our accommodation at Franschhoek Country House and Villas was also amazing, I think the actual facilities were second best to the game reserve chalets. We dined at their restaurant both evenings which was very high quality. Their breakfast was possibly the best of the trip, and they also left us good night cards with 2 chocolates. We ended up doing the wine tram (red route) which we would recommend. It was a unique experience catching a bus, tram and tractor and being able to visit a variety of wineries.

    Emma Proudfoot, February 2014
  • I stayed in the Franschhoek villa and it was amazing!

    Yudai Yabuta, February 2014
  • Franschhoek Country House and Villas is a very nice property and our villa suite was spacious, but Franschhoek was extremely busy and we struggled to get into any of the restaurants for dinner.

    David Texas, January 2014
  • Seated in the beautiful wilderness of the West Cape Region, Franschhoek is like a picture from a story book of cultured wine lands. The Franschhoek Country House and Villas is in a perfect setting with it’s history of perfume making over a century ago. The athmosphere and service is of the standard of yesteryears, when the guest was treated as a houseguest, welcomed by the family. We are being treated like a royalty here and we love the accommodation of a villa, with two patios and a walk in closet. The views are over the vineyards and to the mountains. We will certainly return.

Absolutely gorgeous. Exceptional service - not enough adjectives to describe the beauty of the place. Should have spent more time there to wind down a bit.
