This 4-star hotel provides luxurious and stylishly appointed accommodation, an excellent onsite restaurant and is central to numerous famous attractions, most notably some 26 world class wine estates. This superb hotel is for anyone wanting to stay in the heart of the village of Franschhoek.
The historic village of Franschhoek was settled in the 1600s by French refugees escaping religious persecution. Naturally, this influenced the town in many ways, particularly for food, wine, and architecture. Over time, Franschhoek has developed a reputation as the food and wine capital of South Africa, with the climate lending itself ideally to wine production and there also being a burgeoning cheese production industry.
In a similar vein, the village has become an epicentre for culinary excellence, with a diverse selection of eateries, from sidewalk cafes to elegant fine-dining restaurants worthy of the many international accolades they have collected. At the foot of spectacular mountains, a visit also lends itself to exciting outdoor pursuits such as cycling, hiking, fishing and rock climbing. There is also a thriving art industry, with dozens of studios and galleries to visit.
