Second visit and just as fabulous! We were in Oortuiging which is a separate cottage with front door directly onto the quiet street so you feel very private and self-contained. The back door leads to a private patio where you can relax on the leather sofa, and cuddle up with Anna the beautiful Akademie Labrador!
Katherine and Arthur were away when we were there but Hazel is a fabulous host and a credit to the team.....such a lovely person and always has a ready smile. As do the kitchen staff, they are great! I must also mention the housekeeping girls who very kindly handwashed some delicate clothes for me....all part of the Akadamie service!
The attention to detail here is amazing......better than some 5 star luxury hotels I have stayed in! And the bed and linens were out of this world......no wonder we never made breakfast till 0945 every morning!
Short walk into the village so you can either eat in Franschhoek or drive further afield. Recommend The Common Room, MCC and Kalfis in town......and try Holden Manz for dinner (they will pick you up), Pierneef at La Motte, Delaire Graff, and Goatshed at Fairview.
