Avondrood Guest House

Avondrood Guest House

Feefo logo


Built in 1870 and sprinkled with ornate wrought-iron decorative ‘broekie lace’, Avondrood is a much-loved 5-bedroom guesthouse set in a massive, leafy garden in the heart of Franschhoek, South Africa’s gourmet hub. Ideal for couples and honeymooners who want to explore the top restaurants and outstanding wine estates of this fertile valley that is ringed by craggy peaks, Avondrood also has a spacious family suite that is perfect for larger groups who want to holiday at their own pace.

Dripping in thoughtfully-selected art – including a whimsical elephant statue at the cerulean swimming pool – Avondrood manages to combine gracious, old-school living with modern charm and convenience. Enjoy drinks at the bar in the evening and possibly try your hand at tinkling the ivories of the grand piano in the lounge.

With an unbeatable location that is within strolling distance of Franschhoek’s best eateries, art galleries, boutiques and off-beat, family-run shops, Avondrood will also arrange a special rate for you to use the top-notch facilities at the Franschhoek Gym and Health Club – a boon if you feel you have over-indulged on all the delicious food and wines!

Bliss out at the swimming pool, in the Jacuzzi or on a sun bed in the emerald-green garden with a volume from the library. In the evening, relax with a DVD or have convivial sundowners on the patio before heading out for dinner.

Hosts at Avondrood will be delighted to arrange airport transfers, wine tours, spa treatments, restaurant reservations, gym membership, museums and outdoor activities like mountain biking, freshwater fishing or hiking. Their insider information is especially welcome if you want to discover the lesser-known wineries for their specialist vintages and cultivars.


A delectable breakfast is served every morning on the patio on warm days or in the lounge on cooler days. The garden setting is a winner in summer – the views, birdsong and soft sunshine conspire for a glorious start to the day. For other meals, seek no further than Franschhoek itself for anything from an excellent espresso to a multi-course, gastro-feast tasting menu.

Traveller Reviews

Avondrood Guest House

Chas Vanderwilt

Franschhoek and Avondrood Again, we believe that we could not have stayed at a better place than Avondrood. It is No. 1 in our books. It was fantastic and Justin, the owner was so great. I would go back to Franschhoek only if we could stay there , because we think we would be disappointed if we would stay anywhere else.
