Just back from a trip touring the Eastern and Western Cape. We stayed for two nights at Akademie Street in Franschoek and it was one of the best places we experienced during the whole two weeks.
Franschoek itself is an idyllic town with a perfect setting and the accommodation was the icing on the cake. The property has grown over the years from a single house to a number of individual cottages in the grounds that vary in size. We stayed in Vreugde, which is the smallest accommodation, but we thought it lovely with it's own little garden and plunge pool.
Katherine, Arthur and the rest of their team were welcoming and helpful. The breakfast was excellent. Freshly cooked and eaten al fresco in the garden of the main house.
On top of all this, drinks and snacks placed in the room, including a great selection of fresh fruit, were all included in the room rate as was a laundry service.
