Amazing places to stay in Franschhoek

Category Lifestyle

Just a short drive east of Cape Town, you'll find this petite slice of Provence, where a handful of French Huguenots settled more than 300 years ago (in 1688, to be precise).


Meaning "French corner" in Dutch, Franschhoek has since become a must-visit destination flecked with multi-cultural flavours, while still offering visitors a chance to explore its unique heritage and breathtaking natural beauty.


In Franschhoek also lies the real estate's industries smallest head office, that of Volschenk & Heyns!


Maison Cabrière

When Dutch owners Eveline and Alexander de Vries-Spruijt decided to pause their careers in Amsterdam, to embark on an overseas adventure, they chose the tranquil town of Franschhoek to create Maison Cabrière: a boutique hotel that would be quite at home on the pages of a top interior magazine.


A small wooden gate from the private parking opens onto a charming peach-pip pathway lined with lavender and rosemary bushes that, in turn, leads into a beautifully manicured garden surrounded by six stylish suites.

7 Koppies

Perched on a small hill at the top of a long, winding dirt road, 7 Koppies is a tastefully quirky five-bedroom farmhouse in the Franschhoek Valley with spectacular, unhindered views of vineyards, the Simonsberg Mountains and an eminently hikeable fynbos reserve - all of which are best enjoyed at sunset, with a glass of vino, from the edge of the 25-metre-long pool.
