After a lengthy holiday to South Africa we ended our trip in the Cape wine lands. After some consideration we decided to stay in Franschhoek at Akademie. Upon arrival we were given information covering anything you may need to know about the guesthouse, the local village and surrounding wine lands. Our room 'Uitsig' was generous in size with a balcony overlooking the mountains and a bathroom that has heated flooring (pleasant surprise in the colder months). The rooms are designed in such a way that you could spend a very relaxing day in house without having to move, the rooms are stocked with tea and coffee (mini coffee machine with Illy coffee), snacks, wine & beer - not to mention the use of a mobile phone (free of charge) incase you might need to. The breakfast, which is prepared daily by the friendly staff, is made from local seasonal ingredients which consists of a fresh fruit platter, yoghurt and muesli followed by a hot breakfast (any way you like) - most flexible and delicious breakfast we've had in a long time. The hosts and all the staff we met were friendly and super interesting to talk to. Thank you for making our last days in South Africa so pleasant, you have managed to put an extra special touch on your service and accommodation which is unlike anywhere else we've ever stayed. We will return and will certainly recommend Akademie to our family and friends.
