Franschhoek Country House and Villas


... is located in the Franschhoek valley in the Cape Winelands area of the Western Cape region of South Africa.

Situated on the busy main road around 1km to the northeast of the village and opposite an heavily developed residential area, this place really is let down by its location. The original hotel is a very pleasant and historic five star facility with 14 nice rooms and all the facilities one would expect, including a restaurant of some renown. The newly added villas offer greater levels of conventional comforts, but without the authenticity.

Activities in the area include visiting the various vineyards, sampling the many fine eateries, cycling, hiking and generally exploring this delightful and historic village.

Franschhoek Country House is undeniably a decent and well-run facility which attracts reliable guest reviews. but we find it rather mainstream and are too unable to get past the shortcomings of the location to often whole-heartedly recommend it to our guests.
