LE FRANSCHHOEK: A LITTLE BIT OF HEAVEN
This is La Belle France in the South Africa’s Western Cape - framed by magical mountains; surrounded by landscaped greenery and steeped in history – Three Cities Le Franschhoek Hotel and Spa has it all (and 4 stars to complete the picture).
Travel through the delightful village of Franschhoek - tourist’s paradise and vacationers Mecca – towards the towering Huguenot Monument (memorial to the French Huguenots who fled persecution in the religious wars after King Henry IV revoked the Edict of Nantes in France) and, turning right, head for the hills.
The winding road continues, through breathtaking scenery, until you reach the very base of the towering peaks – and there perched above, flags fluttering in the wind, rises the majestic, thatched hostelry that is a monument in itself. Smiling security staff will jump to attention and guide you towards the ample parking bays; reception staff will swan out of double-height glass doors to welcome you, and birdsong in the beautiful, backdrop of trees, will delight.
Whether you choose to overnight, indulge in a French-style meal, or simply take tea, with rich cheesecake or freshly baked scones drenched in heavy jam and clotted cream – you could not be made to feel more welcome. The reception rooms are a dream of white tiled floors, mirrors, white orchids and deep easy chairs; the bedrooms are regal and the gardens and large swimming pool are mega inviting. This deserves a visit and you can even imagine yourself in a small corner of France.
