I notice from reading the other reviews on this site that many are from repeat visitors like us. There are many beautiful places to stay in Franschhoek but this is for me the very best. Wonderful hosts and a lovely place in a perfect position in walking distance to everything. Thank you Elsa and Jaco and we will be back!

This is a nice B&B in an old historic building just off the main road going through Franschhoek. Jaco and his missus (Elsa?) run a lovely B&B which is close to all the restaurants in the main road. The rooms are nicely decorated and relatively comfortable, leastways I write that because my wife and I prefer softer beds but that's...

Elsa and Jaco were the perfect hosts. The B & B was well run, very clean and had very comfy beds! There was minimal traffic noise in the corner room, but the fridge did make a bit of noise so we turned it off at night. Breakfast was wonderful; we decided to take a 45 minute walk every morning through...

We stayed here for two nights. It is up a quiet street only 2 minutes walk from shops, restaurants & wine tram. We did the wine tour using the tram & had a fabulous day! Rooms were lovely, breakfast v nice too.

This was the second stop on our trip to South Africa; we stopped in Stellenbosch for a look around and were pleased we had booked Franschhoek and the Centre Ville for 2 nights. It is just a 5 minute walk to the centre of town and all the restaurants. Jaco met us at the door and took us to our...

Elsa and Jaco are the perfect hosts, providing large rooms in their traditional styled house. A fantastic breakfast and ideally situated to explore Franschhoek. A small pool in a shaded garden, was a very welcome place to relax at very hot times of the day. Jaco and Elsa thank you for making our stay enjoyable

We spent 2 days in Franschhoek. Centre-Ville is a charming guest house that is located in the middle of town. It is beautifully put together. The rooms are kitted with a fridge and tea making facilities and a very functional aircon which was essential. The breakfasts are completely delicious and the hosts are as charming as their guesthouse. The rooms...

We have previously visited Franschhoek a couple of times but this time stayed with Elsa and Jaco who own and run the lovely Centre Ville Guest House. As the name suggests the property is just one block back from the main High street and is right in the middle of Franschhoek. It is literally minutes to walk to the restaurants...

We stayed here for 1 night whilst visiting the wineries. The owners were lovely and very very welcoming. Breakfast is outside in a wonderful little courtyard that they've decorated and curated and it was a real pleasure spending time there. We had a room up in the attic area which was cosy but perfect for us. Sadly we ran out...
