Franschhoek Country House & Villas

Franschhoek, Winelands

The hotel

Rambling flower beds. Rolling lawns. Ornate fountains. All the classic accoutrements of a manor house come together at Franschhoek Country House & Villas, creating space that’s charming, characterful, and calming. Of course, this isn’t just a country house, so among its beautiful rooms, cottages, and villas, you’ll also find traveller treats like al fresco swimming pools, spa treatments, and the acclaimed Monneaux Restaurant – considered one of Franshhoek’s finest dining venues. Just a bike ride from the village, and with stunning valley views, all the wonders of the winelands are just a drive away, including restaurants, museums, and wine tasting experiences.

Amazing views, a beautiful place, excellent service, and food, would definitely come back and recommend anyone to stay here if they are in the area. Restaurant food is definitely a must, they also did so much effort with our honeymoon small things like the rooms, dessert, champagne. We really felt special, their staff went above to keep us happy.
