    We booked one night here after enjoying the Franschhoek Wine Tram experience (An absolute must). We were the only guests in a 4 bedroomed manor house. Huge rooms, outdoor pool, stunning views and setting, lots of lounge/living areas and a great breakfast to boot!!

    Relaxation at it's best. A great venue for access to many attractions in the area. Many attractive wine estates as well as Franschoek are within comfortable easy reach. If you just want to put your feet up, sit by the pool and admire the view.
