Luxury friendly and very spacious in an idyllic location without being too glitzy or pretentious. The rooms are well designed suites set in an attractive separate block. You can pay a lot more for a lot less. Do you really want your own plunge pool the size of a bath for twice the price when this place has a fantastic pool you share with 5 other rooms and generally have to yourself! Shirley Victor and the team will make you feel at home with very attentive personal service. They cannot do enough for you. Amazing breakfasts with fresh produce from their own working farm! Tips and recommendations were all spot on and we found delightful places we would never of located ourselves. We cannot recommend this place highly enough and it is excellent value for money. It is a mile or so outside the centre of Franschhoek but everyone has a car and taxis are not a problem. Surrounded by good winery's within staggering distance eg La Motte. We will be back.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Fransvliet Guest House is a tranquil, luxury retreat, only 4 kilometres from the heart of Franschhoek.It is situated on a working farm, growing grapes, olives and figs. Wake up to the call of the birds and in the evening perhaps hear the resident owls calling as they contemplate the night's hunt. Breathtaking mountain views are all around, each one more spectacular than the last. The individually decorated suites are pure luxury, with absolute attention to detail. Soft wineland colours set the tone for a perfect stay. Breakfast is an occasion, every day. Spend time in the newly renovated 65 year old house, either inside or on the veranda, enjoying the view of the pool and the vineyards. Celebrate "the best meal of the day" with either a Continental or a full breakfast that will include seasonal specials. The sparkling pool is at your disposal for those hot lazy afternoons. Relax in the shade with a magazine and an ice cold drink, before you cool off. Lazy winter days are a treat too. Snuggle up in your suite in a comfy armchair with your own personal fireplace - the perfect way to enjoy one of the local bottles of red wine. Meander through the garden, (both indigenous and other) on your way to your suite. Something special will be flowering at all times. In season, luscious figs will be found on the trees, and the scent of lemons may be in the air too. Take an early morning walk around the farm in December. The vines will be green and laden with fruit. In July, a few burgundy coloured leaves and bare sticks have their own attraction. Soak up the 360° view, especially the powerful Simonsberg mountains. ... more less
