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.

During check-in, we were advised that our room was above the restaurant and we regularly had to deal with noisy restaurant staff, as well as wade through groups of restaurant staff to get to our room. Also, the service was amazing at check-in, but then dropped off quickly thereafter. Elements of the room were in disrepair, such as a shelf in the cupboard collapsing because it only had 3/4 pins to hold it in place, a cracked and squeaky wooden floor and damaged fittings in the bathroom. The shuttle service into Franschhoek itself was positive. In general, decent accommodation but a number of elements that significantly detracted from the experience. Read less

Beautiful beautiful accommodation. It was my husband's 50th birthday, we got an upgrade to a villa. We where speechless when the key was turned. We where brought and collected by courtesy taxi to go into the town where the restaurants are all fabulous. When we returned each night our beds where turned down and water bottles in the bed.
