HOTEL CHECK SOUTH AFRICA, Franschhoek Country Villas

Very close to the gourmet attractions of Franschhoek, this much loved hotel is just 2 km and a few minutes by free shuttle from Reubens and Le Quartier Francais (which are among our favourite places to eat).

Franschhoek Country House and Villas is designed to feel like a French country retreat. The rambling buildings have a sun-bleached country air, with plenty of warmth and individuality. Old fountains gush, and paved paths cross the gardens, with a rim of beautiful mountains over the valley.

There are four lounges spread out here and there, and terraces with mountain views. 

Our favourite accommodation is the Villa Suite which represents very good value luxury, reflecting an old fashioned elegance with trendy cottagey touches.

These suites are spacious and furnished with taste and warmth, with four poster beds, old-style dressers, and woven “ye olde worlde” chair covers. The bedroom is spacious and the lounge cosy.

In the duplex garden cottage suite, the bedroom opens into a walled (shared) garden with running water.  Upstairs is a small lounge that opens to a balcony with mountain view.

The resort lies in Franschhoek Valley ringed by mountains. You are only 1 km from the beginning of Franschhoek Village. They do not like the guests to walk on the main road and have a free shuttle.  There are two sunny swimming pools.

In a nutshell

Pleasant laid back atmosphere in this rustic resort. 24 Rooms, 2 shared pools, garden, 2 restaurants, 4 lounges, 2 km from Franschhoek village centre by free shuttle.
