We stayed two nights at the L’ermitage Franschhoek Villas. They offer rooms in the Chateau and also two- and three bedroom villas.
Even though the villas is self-catering, we were able to enjoy breakfast at the hotel and they also serviced the villas each morning. Staff were extremely friendly and attended to all our needs.
You will be able to walk to town, but a car may be nicer. L’ermitage Franschhoek Chateau & Villas is what you’d expect from an upper-class five star establishment. It is neat, beautifully decorated and expensive.
One will be able to curl up with a book or just sit for hours, looking at the surrounding mountains. L’ermitage is set in a most beautiful Fynbos location. It is very close to surrounding wine farms and you will never be bored.
Breakfast was also basic, but the staff were extremely friendly and it is worth having breakfast here as it is not that expensive and the surroundings is out of this world.
Restaurants are very crowded, but we had a lovely meal at Kalfi’s Restaurant Huguenot Street.
The Bobotie and other local dishes were fantastic and were impressed by the new owners.
Franschhoek may be a bit overrated, but (like Clarens) is a town full of surprises and it will be a cultural and artistic as well as gastronomic adventure. The town is expensive and ideal for romantic weddings and getaways.
Hint: Rather book through the L’ermitage Franschhoek establishment itself, as some private owners also rent out their Villas.
