After much research I decided to spend our solitary night in Franschhoek at EL.
(An overnighter from CT)
I booked 2 rooms for my visiting friend (from London) and myself.
The previous reviews were 100% correct about Cecilia- a Most kind and helpful host.
From the moment we unintentionally arrived after hours (We're still sorry Cecelia) until we left after the brilliant breakfast, she was unwavering in making our stay as comfortable as possible.
In fact from my 1st enquiry.. Thank You!
The property looks even better in the flesh and I think some additional photos would only assist the reviews.
I have nothing to compare it with in Franschhoek but wouldn't go anywhere else when I return- which will be December!
